Head and Arm Triangle question....
Okay so after watching way too much Jacare I have made the head and arm triangle my new favourite weapon. Technically it has been a weapon for a while for me but lately I seem to be able to hit everyone with it. My question is this:
When I have the grip set up from side control (ie. before I go across the body to tighten it down) but I don't have my head in place what sort of things can I do to get the space for my head? Last night I stepped over the guy's head with my leg closest to his head and when he lifted his arm to move it I dropped my head for the choke. What else can I do from side control once I have my grips (By grips I mean I have my top hand under the head and my bottom hand has an under hook on the far arm the only thing missing is my head to finish the choke)
Thanks in advance.

i love the arm triangle.
it's my favorite move.
i usually have my arm around the neck, and head in place before 'locking it', and finish like in this thread.
one of my favorite ways to set it up, is to attempt a key-lock, and if they straighten their arm, shoot their arm up, drive the head in, and snatch the hold.
however, i don't have too much luck with side control.
i'm guessing that you're doing it similar to the final few steps in this, yeah?:
what'll happen with me, is that i'll get the head and arm trapped, but be on the wrong side to finish, so i'll either have to sneak into mount, and then dismount to the other side to finish, or stupidly try to jump across.
it's definately interesting though.
i'll play around with it from side control a little more.

Yes both the ending to the lock and flow and the Aurelio finish is how I lock mine in. I actually like to start it 'wrong side' and then transition to mount and then into Keza Gatame.
The model I actually follow almost to the letter is Jacare's version (on a side note I might get to train with him next year!) but he does it really nice in this fight against Alexsander Shamelenko.

I'll say again what I said in that thread, remember, chest into opponent.
