A barbo choke is just a different name for a D'arce?
And a Ninja choke is like a no arm D'arce?
Whats the difference?
Your understanding of the darce and anaconda are correct.
The brabo and the darce are the same. There is a gi choke called the brabo, so often people will say darce for the no-gi version, and brabo for the gi version, but for the no-gi version you can use darce or brabo. Either is fine.
I have no idea what the hell a ninja choke is. I know that technically there's no such thing as a no arm darce/brabo. That would defeat the entire purpose. That's like saying a no arm arm triangle.
If there's no arm in the choke it's probably a guillotine variation. Do you have a video/picture of the ninja choke?
