Can anyone help. I was taught a "Apollo" choke from the guard quickly this past Saturday but am not sure i got all of the technique. Google'd it to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Started from guard and combined with a rollout to side control. Tks in advance

Head and arm choke applied from guard position. Similar, in my opinion, to a Tate Shiho Gatame (judo) which is usually performed from the mount. Lock was not really the problem. Confused about the roll out to side control.

once you have the head and arm control, use your leg that is the same side as your head to push their leg so you roll to mount, then you can finish from there or step off to side control and finish from there
