I saw the blue and purple belts doing this choke and somehow that stuff got burned into my cortex. Nowadays, I use that stuff to choke everyone I can lay my hands on. My fellow white belters are not amused...

Kind like this, but bringing my chest lower and trying to get a harness on their back:
My left hand reaches under their head and grabs their right collar.My right hand grabs their right knee.I get to my right foot and put my knee in their hip/side/ribs.I get to my left foot, driving my knee up behind their head so my shin is against their neck.I sit back on my butt as I pull their collar and knee to me. They choke.This is just like the one from rear mount only I don't have one of my legs passed over their waist.
If I'm not mistaken this is something that I picked up(learned) a couple of months ago. Correct me if I am wrong:
The placement of the body and the hands is the same as in the photo. I slide my hand under his head/neck, flat his body and place mine in the "cem kilos" for greater disconfort. Stil "hugging" his head/neck I try to grab the lapel on the side here my body is placed. Something like a cross handed grab(sorry about the crappy terms). Still holding the pressure I go with my other hand and grab the cloth of the leg more away from me. I grab it thightly and moving my body up from the "cem kilos" I begin the choke. My two knees on his back, my left hand on the lapel and my right hand on the cloth of the pants. Like I said...people do't like getting choked on this and strangely don't use it that much in sparring. I like it, because it's kind of devious. Feel free to use ruse in disgusing your intetion while using it. Aesopian, is it like your technique, more or less?

This position sets up many nasty chokes. The trick is to get the proper position and grab that lapel. People, like myself, who recognize the ABSOLUTE DESPERATION of this position will do anything to keep you from getting the collar. It is doom once someone gets that collar. Your only hope is to unwind yourself before they can grab your pantleg. If not...doom.

We learned a choke where you grab the lapel and basically "do an armbar" thing with it. So instead of hyperextending the elbow, you're pulling on their lapel, but the same motion like an armbar. Is this kind of the same thing?
I've really wanted to try that, but I never get anyone's back. :(

If anyone can explain how you choke them with your own lapel, please divulge. I find it very hard to get the collar grip on most skilled opponents, since that is priority no. 1 for them to block. Using your own lapel sounds intriguing.

Did this at a seminar last week. Except instead of putting the top leg over for the alternative, we placed the knee to the back of the head to push.
