yes we did... Somebody said a white belt visited his school and was catching people with it and saying that he invented it. 

then there was a counter video of a BB saying that he had been doing it and gave further details.

this was at least a year ago...maybe 2.

I believe the earliest that someone can verify was one of Jack Magee's white belts from Mad Hatters Gym. That pre dated both. It was 3 or 4 years ago. The consensus was that while the Ralph guy and the other guy did not copy the other guy (they came across it organically and independently) it was being done previously.

It was actually created as part of Project TRISCOMBE, a CIA  funded black ops program that has long since been shut down.

yeah... times flying, so maybe it was that long ago, but that sounds like what I'm talking about too.

Seems like a big fight over a move only 1 out of 100 people have the flexibility to do

Not really. It was a technique featured on watchbjj and or bjj eastern europe. The post stated that the guy made the move up and someone on facebook came forward saying that they had been doing it years prior. Both parties agreed that they had independently developed it regardless of timeline.
It was all very diplomatic really.

Is it really that tight? Can the top guy pressure into the arm and threaten the arm triangle at all? 

 

As a black belt, these types of moves are my worst nightmare. All of the white and blue belts will spam this stuff over and over when all I want is to just chill and catch my breathe in side control.

There's actually a very easy counter to this, but only 1 out of every 100 people has the flexibility to do it.

While a statistical improbability,  if the 1/100 people who has the flexibility to do this ever encounters the 1/100 people who has the flexibility to counter it, sh!t's gonna get interesting.
