Triangle Choke and joint trouble?

I was messing around with my friend and got him in a Triangle Choke, hes kind of bigger than me so I had trouble reaching my leg around his back but when I got it, my right leg which was holding my left foot going across his back, started seperating/cracked and I'm just wondering does this go away after time because my bones arent used to the pressure?

Whoa buddy, where exactly was the cracking??? I've had my knee pop and crack in that same position, just like it does all the time (walking after sitting for a long time, especially). It was more like a popping as you would do to your knuckles, but not an actual bone cracking. Was it bone or joint??

...plus I've got old-man knees, and have since I was 14, so they pop all the time.

Haha where I'm from popping = cracking, people say "cracking knuckles" and stuff like that so yes, POPPING I guess. My knee kind of pulls apart and in the middle it pops, nothing irreversable just kind of pulls at the joint.

Maybe you should focus on stretching? How long have you been doing Bjj? Also, are you doing this at an actual Bjj school, or just with your friends?

I'm a die-hard fan of BJJ and am always trying to learn more about it. I really can't afford to spend my money (I'm a senior in highschool with a part-time job) because I'm saving up for college but yeah I mess around with my friends (wrestlers) often. I've never really tried stretching my knees? I usually do some thigh/calf stretches before running/squatting and stuff, and sometimes I kick the bag around to get higher kicks, but never anything more. Any good stretches to do?

It could also be due to your technique, watch this video:

Could you clarify if this was a cracking noise, similar to that of cracking a knuckle, or a noise which sounded potential harmful? If it was similar to a knuckle cracking noise, but louder of course, then it's no issue. All that was happening is that you separated the knee joint just enough for bubbles to form in the synovial fluid, and then burst almost immediately. If you think it could be a serious issue then I'm not the right person to be offering you advice.

hey man do warm up and stretch. i was late to class(like always) and i hopped in to do a couple rounds of randori. my sensei asked me if i need to warm up first, i told him that i was ok.
my team mate shot in for a single, i stuffed it, but he still got a grip low on my ankle. i turned my back to him to step out. when i was drawing my foot from his grip i felt my knee come apart. i scared the shit out of me. i warm up every since then.

"every second your not training, he is..... and he is doing it, just to kick your ass"
