    Locoplata is what exactly? It's alreadyb been discussed on the forum as being an Eddie Bravo move, but what exactly is it? How can it be all about a technique people don't know?

    Awesome move. But no WAY is this big Hawaiian flexible enough to get my leg across anyone's face like that. No way. Scratch that from my game.

    Gogoplata is a bitch to pull off against someone wormy and resisting, at least for me anyways. I've only got it one like one person in my life.

    The locoplata is the natural progression from Gimmick to Super Gimmick of the gogoplata, especially with Eddie Bravo involved.

    Tust for reference, locoplata isn't mentioned on google once. That's how much it's known.

    The sheer number of 'locoplata' hits on Google lately is staggering. We keep this shit on lockdown. The downlow. Underground. Downtown.

    I'll be tapping bitches out all night with the locoplata and when they ask what it was I never tell them. They might do something stupid and put it up on a website, or let it go on a message board.

    Sigh... now now kids... I will now proceed to destroy stoic1's monopoly on Eddie Bravo's Locoplata on this forum. :D

    The move is basically a modified gogoplata. It looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    What makes Eddie's version different is that he is controlling the left hand with his right hand and using his right foot to apply pressure to finish the choke.

    In a normal gogoplata, the person is using their right hand to push the foot into throat while not controlling your opponents other hand.

    The book I bought a couple of weeks ago at www.BJJBook.com , "the Techniques of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu" has this move on page 52 of the first chapter, The Guard.

    I emailed the author, and he said he learned it from Nino Schembre about 6 or 7 years ago.

    Maybe there should be a place where grapplers could copyright the name of a move and show the date. time, video, pictures, dates used in competition of a certain move. Probably like a US Patent thing.

    Warning: This move was created in 1930 by .......... It is called .............. This move was used in .......... See video file on this move .........

    i've used the gogoplata lots of times... but I first had to get flexible enough... basically continuously forcing to put my ankles behind my head... you can actually set it up from the rubber guard... tried a couple of times...
