    Brabo choke defences wanted

    This is what I mean by Brabo choke, either from half-guard or side control:

    http://www.grapplearts.com/Brabo-No-Gi-Choke.htm

    I get caught with this too often, it's killing my half-guard sweeps and side-control escapes where I pummel my far side arm under my opponents body to create space.

    No-gi techniques preferred, if anyone's got any ideas...

    One thing that I found useful was this -

    Assuming you are underhooking with your left arm, when he starts to lock up the brabo, pass your right arm between his legs. Reach down with your left arm and clasp your hands together, as if you were shooting a high single on his trapped leg. Pull his leg into you - this moves him higher over your body, making it difficult for him to sink his hips and finish the choke, and also helps create space between your shoulder and neck.

    This position leads to many sweeps.

    This is pretty much my favorite half-guard escape. It's good for preventing a choke as you mentioned. It actually makes you very difficult to punch cleanly in the head in an MMA situation. If the guy's base is weak he can be rolled over fairly easily, or, if you're like me, you can use this to slip out the back pretty easily too.

    Don't let go of the under hook and let him reach in and control your neck. Essientially its one of those things you just shouldn't let someone get you in. So be on the look out for it and pray that they don't start using the vise grip control to pass.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    and Jeff Glover is the BJJ messiah so it gets an A+ in my book :qbluepira

    I also like the one when you push your shoulder through and grab your own leg to help you kick out of it, but avoiding it in the first place by bringing your leg over in front of him is definitely the best defense IMO

    That one's good as a last resort (and works well against arm-triangles and anaconda chokes, too) but this one puts you in better position to attack, which is always preferable to purely defensive escapes.
