Flying triangle choke effectivness
Ok, first thread, i ran a few searches on this and i dont think its been covered so hopefully no repost!
im a big fan of Genki Sudo, and his very unique style of fighting, well one thing i was wondering is how effective would a flying traingle choke be in a real fight.
To me if used against someone with little training and also around your weight and strength (to stop them slamming you) it could be an effective technique especially because of the "shock factor"
here is a video on flying submissions ive found intresting to watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDTSlKTvxzM
So what do you think???

If someone shoots for a single they can be done. I get the guys in my gym a lot with them. As for real competition, watch Rumina Sato as well as Sudo. Also, at a comp. here last year, A brazilian guy got three guys in a row with them en route to winning the open weight advanced division. On t3h str33t though (If that's what you meant), well, uh, yeah, you just go ahead and try that. I'd like to see it.

In a street fight, the effectiveness of a gimmicky move like a flying triangle is inversely proportional to your opponent's grappling savvy and directly proportional to your own proficiency at performing the technique in a live situation. Which is a fancy way of saying it's a high risk move. It's a much better idea to stick to basic techniques during any altercation.
That said, I flying triangled a guy in a parking lot about two years ago. I did so without thinking about it because he bent over in such a way that the move presented itself. If you had asked me before that fight if I would ever use a flying triangle in such a situation, I would have said no.
Although I managed to avoid cracking my head on the pavement on the way down, my back was not happy when we landed. All things considered, I'd advise against using it unless you're very good at performing the move against a wide variety of resisting opponents. Plus, neither you nor I are Genki Sudo

Do you have an approximate date on this happenstance, jnp? A month and year, perhaps?"No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal
