    I worked this technique a little bit last week in a class I don't normally attend (way early in the morning). We were working side-control and setting this choke up. Does anyone have any links to a decent instructional that cover/detail this choke?

    If I recall correctly, working side control, I use my far arm to grab across the shoulder (pinning it), near hand is controlling the hip, using far arm, rotate the elbow down towards the mat like a big paper cutter so they blade of your forearm is across their throat. There were quite a few details on the set up and was wondering if anyone was familiar with it.

    That's sounds like a baseball bat choke with one arm.

    Good video. From side control, you use your "free" hand to grab his shoulder from under his armpit. You pull his shoulder down so you can bring your elbow to the ground as well as tighten his gi.

    Doesn't it seem like you could just upa out of that choke from the mount? If he's got one hand on your collar and one hand grabbing your gi below he doesn't have a hand to post with anymore should you go for the upa? What am I missing?

    I use this choke all the time from side control, even if you get it kind of loose it's a great distraction to get the mount.
