    But I think I got you beat. Just by having Aesopian mention The book to me I triangle two people the very next day! Coincidence? I think not.

    Several of you claim to have ordered this book, and I'm assuming you don't live on a remote island where supplies and book orders only come by barge every three month, so now that you've had the book for a while, what do you think of it?

    All I heard about Boyd was that he felt the book was all about Rigan's penis, but I'm still waiting to learn if this is a good or bad thing.

    After finally watching the DVD that came with it:

    My favorite setup in the book is by far the one where you go for an armbar, but he defends by grabbing his own sleeve or something. Then, you put the foot that is farthest from his head onto the opposite arm, and push to try to break their hands apart. If that doesn't work, then you move that leg to the other side of their arm, kinda beside their head, and take the leg that was over their face and move it off. They think they escaped the armbar, and BOOM they walk straight into a triangle. I liked it because not only is it a triangle setup, it's also a way to finish an armbar.

    Which is another good thing about the book. It tells you how to set up omoplatas, armbars, etc., it's just that it also shows you triangles from there if they escape.

    I should have bought this book years ago when Aesopian suggested it! Now the book is out of print and going for almost $250 on amazon! If they don't do a second printing it is going to end up like some of those old Judo books a la Vital Judo or Judo in Action, a hard to find gem.

    Wow.

    Asshole.

    Had to necro this thread to tell us your opinion, didn't you?

    P.S. There really should be a second printing though.

    Doubt this will get any traction since this is an ancient thread, but can someone expand on this?
    The only no-arm triangle I know does not require a gi and is probably easier without it.

    It can be finished by reaching deep into the collar, like a cross-collar choke, with your own arm acting as your opponents arm normally would. I prefer to rip his lapel out of his belt and feed it around and over his shoulder for a deeper/stronger grip myself though.

    You just have to watch out for simple counters, if you grab up too deep and you're a bit loose one counter is to actually make you armbar yourself.
