    That's black belt level advice on finishing a triangle. The details here show you how to prevent 1) posturing up, and 2) stacking, which are the two most common faults for finishing.

    Pulling down on the head and keeping your knees squeezed together keep him from popping his head out while you put your foot in the hip to get the right angle. Rigan Machado teaches breaking down the posture first while entering #1 - pull down on head and bring opponent into you with legs.

    Another Rigan drill for finishing is to do it without arms - to train keeping the proper pressure with the knees through the transitions like putting the foot in the hip for angle. That drill makes the whole finish a lot tighter.

    UFC 58 shows a nice triangle finish in the lightweights. The Canadian dude finished it well with the right angle on Yves Edwards.

    This thread makes me happy there's DHS, and sad this thread wasn't made there.

    Just wanted to add a side note to #7 Instead of lifting your hips try doing a crunch. Just pull down on the head and do a sit up. Do this alone look at the size of the hole (I feel dirty) in the triange to see what I mean.
