Thread: Finishing arm triangles

I do my arm triangles mostly like this, but the putting the knee on top of the hip to block the leg-grab escape is a great detail I wasn't aware of.

Thanks for this !! ...
I couldn't figure out how to do it right myself,
even after accidentally getting it to work once ...
Gonna try these things on Wednesday.

I actually got the admin of MMALibrary to make it so registration is only needed to reply or post, not view the techniques (like it used to be).

Thanks, this actually helped. Hope I remember when it's time to try it out."Prison is for rapists, thieves and murderers. If you lock someone up for smoking a plant that makes them happy, you're the fucking criminal." - Joe Rogan

This is the same way we'll do the arm triangle but if we find that doesn't work, we'll keep the bottom arm on the ground and slide that hand up torwards the opposite elbow. It's hard to get the hand all the way up to the opposite elbow just by doing this, so we'll put the hand of the "free arm" flat on the ground, straighten the arm, then lift your opponent so your "bottom hand" reaches the elbow, then put your elbow to the ground (so both of your elbows are on the ground), the "free hand" on your ear and your head to the ground while you squeese to finish the choke (of course the whole time keeping your knee in your opponent's ribs for control).
The counter to this is to push your hands together to try and sqeese space inbetween the other guy's arm and your neck. If someone starts to muscle out of the triangle this way, we'll move to an armbar and work from there.
I hope that made sense.

I finish armtriangles by simply putting upwards pressure on the neck using my arm underneath. I accmplish this by simply leaning forward and then raisining my shoulders. Instant tap. It turns into more of a neck crank though.I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

Since this thread was posted I have used this variation a couple of times, and tonight I finished it with the standard arm configuration and the knee-on-hip. Very cool post.
