Fundamentals class today. We covered a defense to a football tackle like attack (or poor double leg takedown) and then moved onto triangle from closed guard. Triangle has never been my thing. My short stocky legs just weren’t built for throwing triangles. In fact, as long as Ives don’t BJJ I have never submitted someone (except my kids) with a triangle choke in love rolling….not even the white belts. I know how to do it and I know the small adjustments I need to make but it always seems easier to go to a higher percentage move rather than struggle with throwing my sausage legs around someone’s shoulders and neck.
On a side note I have been drinking acai juice for almost a whole week and have not noticed any improvement in my jiu jitsu as a result….superfruit my ass.
