Arm triangle choke
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arm triangle choke, side choke, or head and arm choke are generic terms
describing blood chokeholds in which the opponent is strangled in between Arm triangle choke
his or her own shoulder and the practitioner's arm. This is as opposed to the
regular triangle choke, which denotes a chokehold using the legs, albeit with
a similar mechanism of strangulation against the opponent's own shoulder. An
arm triangle choke where the practitioner is on the side of the opponent and
presses a forearm into opposite side of the neck of the opponent is known as
a side choke, such as from the kata-gatame hold.

Anaconda choke AKA Arm triangle
An anaconda choke is an arm triangle from the front headlock position. The performer threads his or her arm under the
opponent's neck and through the armpit, and grasps the biceps of the opposing arm. The performer then attempts to pin the
opponent onto the trapped shoulder so as to better interrupt the flow of blood, all the while applying pressure with the
grasped biceps. The performer may accomplish this by rolling the opponent over the untrapped shoulder, (known as a gator
roll) and use the momentum to turn the opponent onto his or her trapped shoulder. Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira was the first
one to use it in MMA, although he and his twin brother learned this submission from Milton Vieira.
The D'Arce choke, also known as the Brabo choke, is similar to the Anaconda choke. The difference is that the choking arm
is thread under the near arm, in front of the opponent's neck, and on top of the far arm. The choke gets its name from Joe
D'Arce, a third-degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Renzo Gracie. Though not the inventor of the choke, D'Arce
performed this choke often and with great success in many Jiu-Jitsu and submission grappling tournaments. During a sparring
session with Jason Miller, the choke surprised Miller, who gave it the name and pronunciation "Darce" rather than the proper
"D-Arsee," when D'Arce did not have a title for the technique.
