Triangle Chokes are one of the most effective submissions from the bottom positions and can be a huge problem for any top player or guard passer. In today’s video we have a question regarding just that situation. Our friend Nick who is a wrestler type who is coming into BJJ is getting caught in triangle chokes left and right and he’s wondering if I have any tips on dealing with the situation.
In this video I share tips on both a triangle choke defense and how to defend it. I used to struggle with the same problem as a wrestler who would get caught in triangle chokes while passing guard. I also show how I corrected the issue.
I also share how I like to look at the triangle as a position which has multiple stages. I consider 3 stages of triangles to be a starting point which I explain in the video.
From there I talk about some tips to escape the triangle in stage 1, or a loosely locked triangle. I’ll work on escapes for the future if in a deeper position.
Hope you enjoy the video and thanks for watching!
