just wondering if this is illegal in gi Bjj. You're in someone's guard and you pull the collar across the throat then stand in the guard and push down on the throat. Basically a collar choke but standing over them. Now this is a move I was taught in class and one the head instructor used when I rolled with him so as I was concerned it was a legal technique. So what night during the last few minutes of rolling I used it on this guy. He said nothing when I started to apply it. Then he tapped and started saying oh yeah well that's an illegal move. I just shrugged and said okay sorry and moved on. So anyone know if it really is illegal or was the guy just salty that he got tapped? If it was illegal then fair enough my bad no one ever told me it was illegal when I was taught it but hey what do I know?
