Maybe it is because it reminded me of when I taught it to my daughter, Ronda, when she as that age.
Maybe it reminded me of all of the times my friend, Tina Thomas, and I ran through it at Venice Dojo just for the hell of it - so often that Gary Butts took to calling it the "Rousey Roll".
Maybe it's because I remember all of the times I did it in tournaments, starting from when I was 13 years old - old enough to choke but not old enough yet to do arm bars.
Maybe it is because I've been working so much the last several weeks that I am happy just to be on the mat, outside, anywhere but adding one more reference to a report, writing another paragraph, staring at another budget.
More likely, it is all of those things. I don't know. I just know that sometimes, choking people makes me happy - even people I like!
My day job is making video games. Support me by buying a game or donating one to a school. Give it to anyone you'd like to be smarter.
