In this video I answer a question about the BJJ Arm Triangle Choke. The question was mainly about how to make the choke tighter rather than squeezing on someones jaw.
In the video I give some of my favorite adjustments to making the Arm Triangle tighter and a much cleaner submission rather than just driving into someones face.
In Brazilian Jiu-jitsu we always need to remember what our goal is with the choke submissions. Most often it’s to apply pressure to the carotids.
So when you’re drilling and practicing your techniques it’s important to use finesse and apply the submissions with focus on the true objective of that move.
During practice if you feel like you have to squeeze with all your might, it’s probably not technically sound.
Now when it comes to a hard roll or Brazilian Jiujitsu competition. That’s when you add the strength element into things.
Either way if you are struggling to finish the arm triangle choke. I hope this video is useful!
