Info about "Gogoplata video"
Gogoplata (shin choke) is a type of chokehold that is used in grappling and was popularised by practitioners of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The gogoplata is executed from a guard, commonly from a “rubber guard”, where the legs are held very high against the opponent’s upper back. The fighter then slips one foot in front of the opponent’s head and under his chin, locks his hands behind the opponent’s head, and chokes the opponent by pressing his shin or instep against the opponent’s trachea. A variation called a Locoplata is when the bottom man uses his free foot to push up on the choking foot and increase pressure.
Ryusuke “Jack” Uemura is notable as the fighter who performed the first successful gogoplata in mixed martial arts against Isao Terada at Zst Grand Prix 2, Final Round, on January 23rd, 2005. Former UFC Heavyweight fighter Brad Imes calls himself “Mr. Gogoplata,” after winning two matches in a row with the maneuver. Nick Diaz defeated Takanori Gomi using the gogoplata at Pride 33, only to have the victory turned to a NC due to positive test for marijuana in the post-fight drug screen.
