    To be fair a lot of adherents of the Kodokan heresy tend to do it this way.

    I predict this thread will be hooded and shackled in a small cage soon enough anyway.

    Yes, and I have heard a number of people argue for the forearm across the throat version. I personally disagree with it, but keep in mind where I am with all of this; better yet, ask someone with years worth of experience.

    for guys with skinny arms -like myself- often the forearm chocke works better and is a lot easier. keep in mind us 145'ers locu5.

    Remember to try the throat choke from inside his guard. Then report back with your good arm how well it worked.

    If you're just training I say go for the actual, technical RNC blood choke. If you can get the forearm throat choke instead, don't take it. Try to get your arm around for the full RNC. In competition, do what it takes to get the tap I guess, but don't hurt a training partner's trachea.

    btw I've seen Rickson have someone's back in an MMA fight, and he had the front of the throat, but he didn't take it. Kept rolling the guy over and pulling his forehead up to get a good RNC. But that's rickson of course.
