The beauty of the triangle in BJJ
The beauty of the triangle in BJJ cannot be undersold. In addition, it is probably one of the most important finishing holds to learn in BJJ. At our Academy, Savarese BJJ (www.bergencountybjj.com), it is taught to you almost every class through your first 3 months of training. Furthermore, here are some more remarkable properties of the triangle. The triangle is among the most impressive moves in all of Jiu-Jitsu. It has many manifestations and variations. One of the best and most unique features is that it is capable of being used as both a choke and a joint lock at the same time. Usually we are given a choice when we go for a submission, it’s either a choke or a joint lock, the submission lets us have our cake and eat it too! Not only does it give us a choice, we can use the treat of one to set up the other. For example, in a front triangle shown here, the general rule is that the closer my opponents head to my head, the easier the choke. The further his head moves away, the easier the armlock. Triangles allow us to use several different types of joint locks without releasing the chokehold, creating real danger for the opponent. Learn to use this unusual dual submission threat of the various triangle variations to get your submission percentages rising! Often, many larger new practitioners will have trouble finishing a triangle choke. Don’t fret, you are just not used to moving your hip correctly and making the correct angle. This will come over time on the mats. As you gain more experience, you will start to understand the angles for finishing this choke better and see the value and the beauty of the triangle in our great art.
