Ryan Hall's inverted guard to triangle
I don't need to introduce Ryan Hall or his triangle. Not if Lloyd did his job. But Trog and I did pick apart how he does it:
I may not be very original but at least I'm informative.
Damn, that Hall/Rader match is smooth poetry for both grapplers. Fucking talented.
Yeah, like what could this Ryan kid know about the triangle? His last name isn't Gracie afterall...
Wow! By looking at the vids of Ryan Hall, that inverted guard looks pretty damn effective and opens up a whole new game for me when I'm on my back. As he said, it looks kind of sloppy but it makes a lot of openings because people are just focusing on what looks like an easy guard pass. However, I may have to do some yoga classes or something to be truly comfortable in the inverted guard, because I am in no way as limper as Ryan Hall, and lying on your back like that can be a little straining for your back.
Another great grappling post Aesopian
damn it. I'm just now getting the hang of half guard. I shouldn't look at all this complicated new stuff. Although it does look like a damn cool way of setting up the triangle.

In regards to Hall, he got promoted when he got back from the Mundials this year.
Ive never seen this before and it seems cool. The only thing I see here is a kneebar though. When the bottom man inverts and goes upside down, look at the 4th picture. Right there I jump up and grab the ankle under my armpit. At the same time I lean pinch my knees together around his knee and lean back. I just started using this a week ago and have had good sucess with it. Anyone else do that?
Other then that its good but just need to be careful of the leg locks.
How could you omoplata the guy while hes inverting?
