    If you want the techniques rated you should seperate them.

    Your defense rating gets an 8 it'll take awhile for beginners to get these mechanics down. The flying triangle, amongst other flying techniques get a 4. Novel but not too effective. Definitely some bragging rights when you pop it on and fun to do. Not for everybody though and too complicated to put in your main arsenal as a go to maneuver.

    I actually didn't put the video together a friend of mine did. I wanted it to be just the defense, and I actually didn't even want to post that particular triangle at all yet. I have another one that is similar, but unlike this one I hit it all the time with ease.

    I sent the kid who did the video for me a messege, and the flying tri I actually wanted to put up should be coming soon.

    No, I meant Coffee Fan needs to be shot. The video was fine.

    Yeah I figured. I also wonder whether or not the length of my torso versus my limbs has something to do with it.

    Interesting, I'm forwarding that vid to my coach to see what he thinks. It looks like a nice slick trick.

    I played with the leg lock. The hardest part for me was jumping over the legs to trap the footlock. When I would go for it the person on bottom would adjust his foot to block it. ?The only way I could get it was to plant my head/shoulder DEEP into his leg, turn my body to the side so I have enough room for the jump.

    Cool move, probably not going to be my go to triangle defense.

    Worse then that, most of my training partners did not have the flexibility to safely drill this technique. I'm afraid that if I actually tried to develop this technique in sparing that I would be hurting far too many of my training partners. I have to hop to get that foot, and that means I can't not control the force until I'm back on the ground. They are taping long before that happens.

    Just out of curiousity did any of you try practicing this a few times on a compliant partner first... before trying to pull it off during rolling?

    Yes, live training is important to be able to use it, but you have to get the basic movement down first. If you're having trouble getting over the leg then try turning his hips over more for a better angle. If he "lifts his foot to block" then he's only weakening his triangle in an attempt to counter a move he KNOWS you're trying to practice. when he does that bring your knee up and press it down on his thigh instead to break his triangle completely.

    and please try this with a cooperative partner first. There is very few techniques that you'll be able to watch online then pull off in a match on your first shot.

    that's unfortunate, and unusual... try falling with your hips back further and see if that makes a difference. the submission copmes when I push my hips in, but I start off with them back to avoid injuring my opponent, and to better keep my balance.
