    As for the Brabo choke, once Aeso corrected his forearm position, I went to sleep. :(
    Just curious...is the Brabo choke considered a "new" technique in the US?

    No, it's not a new technique.

    It was part of the training that Aeso put in for attacking the turtle.

    I'm just asking because of the different sensibilities regarding bjj across the world! The "brabo choke" is not even called that around here...I'm not even sure it's called anything around here! Humm..I'm not trying to step on anyone's shoes, just asking because there are things that seem to be taught in the US as inovative, when they don't seem to me as such, and sometimes I watch stuff, which I guess are common as hell and they look fresh and spanking new. It's something I would like to open a thread with. Sorry about the highjack.
