I have to say that the Triangle Choke is in the top 10 of my favorite submission techniques. I have been searching high and low for a copy of Rigan Machado’s book and DVD titled "Triangle". While searching I came across this awesome demonstration of the Triangle Choke by Rigan.
You have to admire his technique. I never thought of folding the leg over the arm to pass it. He is as smooth as silk. Then the spin to Triangle, wow! To look at him you might wonder if he is in adequate physical shape and then you see him move. He is a true master. I like how he uses his leg to move the arm forward. He knows how to use technique instead of brute force. The other night I had a guy set up for a Triangle Choke but I couldn’t get the arm forward. I wish I had seen this before hand. I’ll work on it and maybe next time, eh?!
If anyone knows where I might buy a copy of the Triangle book and DVD please let me know. I hear it is really good.
