“A choke you never saw before will be the next big thing, and best of all it was developed by a white belt. Spread the word. The choke is called the Buggy Choke; there are 3 variations. It was developed by a white belt named Austin Hart from Ralph Gracie’s Team in Northern CA. He came out to Florida to do Rose Gracie’s, Grappling Martial Arts event; however, it was canceled due to the Hurricane.

Rose called me to take care of him. He is a nice guy and caught a couple blue belts with his buggy choke and one brown belt visiting from LA. The choke may not be for everyone, but it is very tricky.”

What we can find out is that Austin Hardt won 40 matches in a row with this choke in a white and blue belt. And that’s something worthy of a huge respect.

Recently the Buggy Choke was executed in MMA by Gabriel Manuca at RFX 31. Even commentators were confused what kind of choke is it. And people around the world now call it “the Manuca choke”.
