Question about the danger of a technique I did
Yesterday me and my friend were grappling and i basically had his race pressed against my right knee (he was to my right) and i wrapped my right arm around the back of his neck and into the back of my left elbow like a choke but backwards. His neck was like a bridge, and on one end was his head against my knee, and the other end was his chest against my right shoulder, and my right arm was like putting weight on that bridge. After not even applying that much pressure he got injured somehow and was in agony for a few minutes. He was yelling and i thought i messed up his neck somehow, but i there was no clicking or cracking sounds that we noticed. I remembered that i have never seen fighters in the ufc or any professional fights that i have witnessed wrap and arm around the back of the neck and create a chocking position but facing them instead of being behind them. I looked in the ufc foul rules and could not see any rule specifically against it. My friend and i are very much amateur fighters so could anyone tell me if this is something that is illegal in tournaments or something that should never ever be done? I have no idea but it seems pretty dangerous. Can anyone out there give me some information or advice?
