    People at my gym have to be sick of seeing it from me, I have been catching people in it like crazy over the past several weeks as I get the timing down more and more. I never put any effort into passing half guard, I just stay loose and as they shrimp away I wizzer the arm and sink the choke in. Thats the beauty of it, the guy feels like hes in an ok spot and creating distance, then suddenly hes caught.

    once people at your school catch on, and learn how to underhook the right way, youre going to have to find some new setups for it. i was braboing everyone for like the last two months or so, and now that I showed people what I was doing, it has become a lot harder to catch

    I'm 6'2 so my arm can usually wrap around most people, but i do have a bit more trouble on the guys who are 210+ lbs.

    Like the above said. I love this sub, but it takes so much work to set it in on someone that knows how to defend against it and someone who has broad shoulders/thick neck.
