    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I wonder how many people who would make fun of go-go plata would just as easily fall in love with the almost identical technique in the judo pic. As long as Asians are doing it, there must be some sort of 10,000 year pedigree to draw on.

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    I don't know if it's that bad, because from what I've heard, it is some BJJ'ers signature technique (like Nino Schembri). I've never even heard of someone actually pulling off a 540.

    As far as leg chokes go, I like this one best:

    I'm gonna try it out tomorrow night. I'm not sure if I'm flexible enough though.
