About aggressive behaviour from an almost 5 year old

Just wanted to seek advice about my almost 5 year old - he is not actually a particularly aggressive boy but when he does get really mad, I really dislike his habit of grabbing by the throat (nearly always his very annoying younger brother).

Obviously I don't want him to get mad at all, but I would prefer if he slapped his brother to this grabbing by the throat. Where he picked up this habit, I have absolutely no idea - not even off the tv (certainly not any of his regular programmes)

I have tried to stamp this out and warn him of the danger of this but clearly, when he gets mad - all rational thoughts go out the window. Not that I want him to hurt anyone, I just really don't like to see this type of lashing out (and I know that a 4 year old will hopefully learn at some point to curb his impulsive behaviour).

As I say, its not that he is easy to anger - just when he does get angry (like we all do but as adults we can control our anger) I just wish I could stop him doing this grab the throat. Any advice would be appreciated.
