Also known as Namijujijime, Danzan Ryu includes this technique in the Shimete list under the name Gyakujujijime.

The technique is called 'normal' because the backs of both hands of the person applying the choke are facing the person who is applying the choke. The fingers are on top grabbing from the outside of the clothing. The thumbs grab inside underneath the gi or clothing. The hands are high up each side of the neck. Scissoring the hands applies pressure to the carotid arteries reducing blood flow, rapidly resulting in loss of consciousness. In judo, this technique is always taught under supervision and is similarly closely observed by referees in competition.
