Getting to Know the Gogoplata
If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that kagato jime -- which most of us know (and love) as the gogoplata -- is among the raddest of chokes. Earlier this year I wrote a semi-scholarly piece on the technique, tracing its modern history at least. I say "modern history" because you know this technique is on some Kito-Ryu scroll somewhere or something. Anyway, a fine fellow by the name of Abrantes translated this article into Portuguese! How cool is that!
