Is he doing the move where you have both lapels in one hand and pull on one lapel to set the choke...???

Can't really see.

And is Relson the ref?

Can't really see what's going on there.


I have no clue how he did it. Just know it was a choke using his opponent's gi.

The sub has been discussed here before I think. Controversy about removing the other guy's gi and obstructing his vision with it.

it's fair game, but i find it a bit much, for my taste.

it's akin to using their belt or your own belt to strangle the opponent with it. yes it's possible, but it just has an odd feel to it.

Bad ass choke, and performance. Tim is a little monster!

Not my taste also.

paneo astima - that doesn't look legal to me, he's reaching inside the guy's gi


Since Relson didn't freak out, it must have been perfectly legal.

I think it was a sick move. If it was illegal I'm sure Relson would have had no problem DQing him.

I just started with Tim as my instructor and he is top notch. He has a lot of smooth chokes and also a really good half guard game. He has a lot of cool stuff on youtube. If your in San Antonio come check us out. CarlsonGracieTexas
