So I think I may have developed a new submission (unlikely, yes I know).
I have checked on lockflow.com and can't find anything like it.
Is there a larger repository that I can check with?
Waiting for the (tm) ?
It's very unlikely but describe it or post a video
Its hard to explain.
Its sort of like a modified side-choke.
Is done from the mount.
You pull your opponents arm across their neck and grab wrist and pull from behind head.
The put your other arm in through their arm and grab your own arm/wrist.
I'll take some pictures this Sunday and post.
Sounds like you nicked Ted Dibiase's finishing move
The Million Dollar Dream? Ha!
Actually I used to do a scarf choke a lot in BJJ by reaching round the back of peoples neck and grabbing the lapel.
It's basically a no-gi modification.
Look at your sub again and picture an evil laugh whilst "money, money, money, money, money..." plays in the background
It also helps if you can laugh evilly whilst performing it
Everybody has a price......
Thats a common no-gi choke; and its pretty old school from what I have been told by one of the purples I roll with.
I don't know what it is called but we have universally held that it is hugely demoralizing to be choked out with your own arm.
My usual set up for it starts from side control, say on the guys right side. Typically you'll get cross faced when trying to put pressure from side. That is when I find I can go for this choke. Once I have the right wrist secured with my left hand under the head and on the left side of the guys neck, I mount and finish by threading my right through his bent arm and grabbing my left arm as close to the right side of his neck as possible; then drop your head to the mat like a mounted gi choke to finish.
Your typical arm triangle is always present during this set-up but finishing it this way is a lot more demoralizing.
Your memory is quite good.
It's basically this but a lot tighter and done from the mount.
OK, nothing new. :P
Apparently it's called a cobra clutch. And yes it is very demoralising for the person being choked.
It can be used as an excellent control move from side control as well (minus the second arm). It makes it almost impossible for them to turn into you.
