    Can we all agree on what constitutes a "reverse triangle? This is always a point of confusion for me in these discussions. I use triangles with legs both ways from at least 3 different orientations, and tend to say "reverse triangle" for the one from North-South, but not sure if this is correct.

    Thanks!

    the names as I understand just in case you mean something different

    basic triangle

    reverse triangle - back control triangle (**** couldn't think of a better way to describe it)

    inverted triangle - when your legs are the opposite way around to the basic triangle (hes looking at your arse not your face)

    the latter. commonly referred to as the "Backwards Triangle"... I think it would be a bit awkward to glover finish a N/S triangle... though I haven't really tried.
    FACT- Eddie Bravo invented the triangle choke when he used it to tap out helio gracie at an ac/dc concert.

    reverse "glover" triangle sounds sick can you get footage or a pic?
    Yeah, I can have it up by tomorrow (one of the advantages of having a girl that competes, lol).

    and when I said reverse here I was referring to the "Backwards triangle" from traditional triangle position. Not the one from the back. I usually refer to that as a "triangle from the back", but I can see how that is even more confusing...


    The "Backwards Triangle" with the Glover finish is probably the most solid submission in my game, and what I mean by that is I can put it on easy with many set-ups, finish it the quickest, and with the least use of energy out of any other submission in my game. My favorite sub is the twister, but that's another story.

    I work this regularly. It's actually a pin in wrestling that I adapted for BJJ in order to secure one head and arm and then attack the far arm while I sort of choke him out, but really just put pressure. The trick is to scoop the head with your heel. You don't even really need the arm, but then it becomes a head crank and legality starts to be an issue.

    I like that one myself because it makes shoulder locks on the outside arm almost too easy, but like I said, I don't think the glover finish works from there, it's great for the one you refered to as a "wrong side triangle".

    damn it! I thought you meant that was the N/S triangle?


    this is confusing. Why can we just have one triangle, like Judo :icon_clow

    *ducks for cover*

    I've seen instructional vids that call that the "Bermuda Triangle." Can someone smarter than me make a poll so we can decide what the triangles are all called?
