    I think it's called go-goplata or something. Shin-choke. I've never seen it pulled in training or competition. Seems very low percentage.

    It's a gogoplata. I get these more often than you would think. I've even got Eddie Bravo's locoplata version. I use them more for comedic effect than anything, but I have gotten them to work.

    Of course, you have to be extremely flexible to start with. I've never seen anyone actually submit someone with it.

    I've got it in sparring but never in competition. It is very easy to pull out off though. I actually got it once by actually getting my other knee up under their armpit, using the calf of my other leg across their back and over their shoulder and pulling my foot down. It does require a lot of flexibility though.

    You know how yer grabbin yer own foot fer that thar choke? Well what are ya doin wit that othur foot an yer free hand?

    Wit tha Locoplata yer usin yer free foot/knee to be pushin up into the heel of that there chokin foot. And then that free hand you reach up and be grabbin at your forearm that is doin the chokin. Then you be usin that new hand to reinforce that choke, and at the same time be drivin that forearm into thier face.

    You gotta be locoflexible for that one.

    It's an interesting move to try to pull off. Good to work with for instinct, variation, and just to try.

    There is a similar technique in Sambo using the Gi Trouser leg for better grip, instead of sweaty limbs.
    Its a bit faster to apply also.

    Hmmm. I was under the impression that Sambo had no chokes. And that the Sambo outfit had no trouser legs, just a jacket and shorts.

    Gymnastics or yoga, not neccessarily ballet.

    i get that position many times, but the opponents just turns their neck and postures up, kinda hard to do against someone who knows what they are doing
