K. Its just like a rear naked choke except from the front. And instead of placing your leverage hand on the back of the head you're moving it across their face and under their neck, tucking your hand into your armpit. I've searched and haven't been able to find anything. Anybody help me out?

could be the anaconda choke....for highlights of this, check out noguiria vs herring in the 04' tournament ...or couture vs van arsdale from ufc 54

The move is called an ezekial choke with a gi on. I have heard it called a couple of things without the kimono, but I am pretty sure thats what you are talking about. It is a very effective choke in BJJ.

Yeah. I think thats what it is. Def not an anaconda. The chokee's arm is not involved. Just neck. I can't help but to noticed its never been used or even attempted in recent MMA. Seem incredibly effective. I tried it on my friend and he tapped immediately.

Yeah, That is actually what I'm talking about. The others weren't. Doesn't involve any sleeve grabbing. Not just a forearm across the neck either.

I've always just called it a front choke, but thats kind of a vague term anyways. The main problem with it is that you have to shift your weight high on the shoulders to get it in most cases, and that makes it easier for the guy on bottom to escape mount. Its a good fight ender against unskilled opponents though because it allows you to maintain position.

Not that any other judo, jujutsu, aikido technique doesn't have a vague name.

This is actually one of the first chokes you learn in Army combatives. Although I think they call it something like a front sleeve choke or some crazy shit.

I remember when I first learned it. When I got home from basic I choked my brother out with it and he thought it was the coolest thing ever Personally I like the cross collar better than this when wearing a gi, though.

Yeah, if you use the term front choke I think standing guilotine, because that's what I've always heard it referred to as outside of MMA, describes a few techniques well enough to bring up confusion though.
