    Well here is something that unfortunatley took my stupid ass too long to figure out re: entry to the triangle from the guard.

    Here's basic basic.......probably should start its own thread "how do triangled"

    The first key to applying the triangle from the guard is getting one of your legs out and around the uke's arm up to the side of his neck. Me being 6'3" and having freakishly long legs made this move a HUGE pain in the ars. Just recently I put 2 and 2 together and started pushing the uke's arm inside between my legs to set up the triangle. This does two things 1) dekes the uke into thinking "hey I can stack much easier now!!", and 2) the transition is much much quicker with no danger of getting my size 14 feet stuck in the folds of the guys gi if training with a gi.

    Edit: failing to push the arm through completeley or having the guy defend may set up a nice bicep slicer if the the triangle is caught and defended.

    That was the first triangle setup I learned actually. We do it with a collar grip so that the other guy can't get away when you open your legs, push his arm through, and close them.
