David Porter's D'Arce chokes are respected by everyone who has watched him work. Here, the Pedro Sauer brown belt — and our guest this Sunday — shows a sweet D'arce setup from the double under guard pass position. Watch, learn, and listen to Dave on the show Jan. 24 at 10 a.m. on WHUPfm.org! You can also download from iTunes, Stitcher or the podcatcher of your choice.

Wondered how David Porter finishes his D'Arce? Learn how with this video. We got a great question for Dave about the choke, which can be finished top/bottom and/or on either hip. What is interesting about Porter is that he's one of the few people to voluntarily give up a top D'arce position to get there, often by something Bill Cooper calls a "Sonic the Hedgehog" roll. Andrew Foster suggested we ask Dave about that bottom hip and Sonic-roll finish: thanks for the great question! You can listen to Dave's answer on the podcast, and you can see a video with him finishing two D'Arces here.

The leg lasso is one of my favorite open guard positions. With the lasso in, we can defend the guard and transition back to closed guard if we want to. We can also set up powerful and safe attacks. It’s very frustrating for our opponent to pass the lasso guard, and frustrated people make mistakes. »
