    Are you sure it isn't a baseball bat choke?

    And usually all my training partners are super open about what techniques they use. I don't see any point in hiding a technique, it's not like you're competing against each other..grow as a team.

    Ya you bluebelt partner isn't helping you or himself by not teaching you the technique.

    Agreed. What a douche. I never hesitate to show anyone anything I've ever gotten on them.

    We get better by having better training partners...plain and simple.

    It was probably more of a paper cutter choke.

    I've seen a cross collar, one that Roy Dean actually shows, but it's hard to enter starting from side control. You have to set it up when still in their open guard.

    You get a deep cross collar grip while controlling the sleeve...much like the basic cross collar/same side eeve control you might have when someone is in your closed guard...and you do the Margarida pass right up the middle. If you fall to the side control side, rather than mount, they tend to turn into you...and they walk right into a cross collar.

    It still seems the bottom hand would be more just "holding" and most of the choke would be done with the top hand grip. I might have to watch the Roy Dean video again.

    Purple belt requirements, in the guard passing section.

    And yeah, I agree with your assessment. I'd call it a papercutter with conviction.

    There is a variation where you wrap there gi around there arm, and then go to knee on belly and get the cross collar with their gi that is wrapped around their arm. I can't seem to find the video though :/ it is definitely a cross collar choke though, but a tad hard to explain in words.

    I love that choke. While in KOB you have a great angle to do many different versions of cross chokes. While in side control, you lose the angle needed and most of the chokes end up being papercutter variations or setups to transition to other positions (like KOB, north/south, etc).

    That's Robson Moura's Little Hand technique that opens up the world in terms of collar chokes, whether cross collar or not. Sets up a pretty nice mounted triangle too.

    Yessir, good stuff. There are so many cool things you can do once you have one arm wrapped up.
