side control to triangle

Posted by forlogos on April 23, 2007

Ok, this is the move from BJJ Class 67. It’s really cool because it involves a few baits and traps. As with the other moves I’ve (and will) illustrate, I feel like this move clicked with me and I see myself realistically adding the technique/s to my present game.

Boarder starts in side control.

Here is another view of the same position. Nogi’s inner arm is inside the position and Boarder will have to remove the arm first to make his side control tighter and more secure – harder for Nogi to escape from.

To do this, Boarder switches his base, using his hips to push Nogi’s arm up and out.

Boarder pulls on Nogi’s arm…

…and settles back into side control, with Nogi’s arm outside. Nogi brings his inner leg up and does a figure four. This removes space that Boarder can use and also keeps Boarder from easily mounting.

Boarder sees this and puts his nearest arm through the figure-four and grabs onto Nogi’s outer thigh.

Boarder pushes on Nogi’s legs using his shoulder, driving Nogi’s legs to the floor

In both pictures, Boarder steps his closest leg between both of Nogi’s legs.

Nogi sees that he is about to be mounted, so he defends his position and pushes out on boarders knee…

…but boarder pulls up on the arm…

…and transitions to mount.

Boarder positions his right knee high, just above Nogi’s shoulder. Boarder also starts a choke using his left forearm on Nogi’s neck.

This is the same step as the last pic, just a better picture of it.

In the two pix, Nogi brings his arm in to help defend his neck.

Boarder grabs Nogi’s arm and traps it on Nogi’s chest. Boarder also places his free hand under Nogi’s head.

All (or almost all) at the same time, Boarder leans slightly back, lifts Nogis’s head, and swings his left leg over Nogi’s shoulder…

…and under his head.

Boarder begins a shoulder roll. (It might be best to lock the legs in position before rolling, because an aware opponent will likely posture up and out of the triangle)

The roll is complete. Boarder locks and tightens the triangle.

Boarder finishes Nogi with an armbar…

…or a triangle choke.

    Nice setup for a triangle from s-mount. But more to the point, that is the coolest demo I’ve seen yet. Using the dolls is genius.
