Rape choke: foul tactic or legit submission?

    Fri, 2009-01-30 13:40 — WVgrappler

    I don't encourage it at my gym, but my pal Blaktoe thinks it is a legit sub.

    Two professionals: Cro Cop demonstrating getting the rape choke by Alistair Overeem. This always freaks me out. If Lovato was doing it to me, I'd wet myself.

    I use to think it wasn't a legit choke but we have a Brown Belt Dom Cosenza who hits it from everywhere. He has probably put more people to sleep including me than any other choke I have seen. When he does the choke it is definitely a legit choke and uses a lot of technique. He also hits it from bottom a lot which is where it usually surprises people. At balance we call in the Dominator. I usually go off the base of if you close your hand and grab there windpipe its not legit and illegal but if you keep your hand open and press forward its legit. Dom also reachs around with his other hand to force your head into and grabs his forearm with that hand to keep it tight. Kind of hard to explain

    In our kid's class the little guys Frankenstein choke the crap out of each other.

    Funny thing is that no one showed them that move, they just adopted it.

    We try to shy them away from it.

    So if the web of my hand is open and I am pushing instead of squeezing, it makes it more legit?

    Works great to freak someone out and set up other stuff.
