The short answer is mind, body, spirit. I think it’s alot more than that. The triangle is a stable shape no matter which way it is turned. The triangle has a stable base which is important in BJJ. And the triangle choke is what many would consider the signature choke of BJJ. There are numerous other parallels one can make.
