    Sweet review Holmes! I just got 3 books including the Triangle so I'll have to wait on this one. Sounds cool though.

    Just ordered via Amazon. $33 including shipping to the UK sounds like a damned good deal.

    Soon I'll have so many books there will be no way I can suck.

    Since Aesopian is a master online book salesman, I also have this book now.

    Pictures are excellent, and they're better explained than in most BJJ books I have scanned. Also, the spelling errors are kept to a minimum, which is great because I'm neurotic about spelling errors in books.

    Other than that, great techniques. I'm glad to have a way to break the guard other than digging the elbows into the inner thighs, because that's apparently a "bitch move."

    EDIT: Seriously, quit making me buy stuff.

    Tonight's BJJ class reminded me that I'm almost never in a position to use the triangle anyway, so I think I'll be picking this book up instead of Rigan's guide.

    Whereas Rigan's book teaches you to use the penis, this one teaches you to avoid it.

    That's what I thought until tonight. I got the Triangle for Christmas and tried a bunch of it tonight. Now I'm getting triangles from side mount, takedowns, mount, rear mount and new ones from the open guard. Don't know what the bad rep is about this book but it has some good shite.

    Thing is, I spend most of my time inside people's guards at this stage and I'm sure as **** not getting any triangles from there.

    Trollshido needs a word filter that changes "triangle" to "penis".
