The D'Arce choke, also known as the Brabo choke, is similar to the Anaconda choke. The difference is that the choking arm is thread under the near arm, in front of the opponent's neck, and on top of the far arm. The choke gets its name from Joe D'Arce, a third-degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Renzo Gracie. Though not the inventor of the choke, D'Arce performed this choke often and with great success in many Jiu-Jitsu and submission grappling tournaments. During a sparring session with Jason Miller, the choke surprised Miller, who gave it the name and pronunciation "Darce" rather than the proper "D-Arsee," when D'Arce did not have a title for the technique.

“Now tis the spring, and weeds are shallow-rooted;
Suffer them now, and theyll outgrow the garden,
And choke the herbs for want of husbandry.”
