This recently happened at ADCC west coast trials competition in the US where BJJ blue belt and Mike Pixley competed a BJJ black belt from Gracie Barra. Pixley was able to immediately use a snap down and lock in a very tight Darce choke and forcing the tap in under a minute. He then casually walked it off as it meant nothing to him.

You can see he drilled that set up countless times…

The most dynamic up-and-coming brothers in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Kade and Tye Ruotolo teach the Darce choke series they have used to compete at the highest levels of grappling.
