Long skinny legs and submissions

I have really long skinny legs and have noticed that I am having a problem locking in some of the submissions, especially the triangle choke. I have no problem getting the person into the move but cant finish. There is alot of room between my legs. Is there any advice on a better way to lock it in and still get the required pressure on the neck to make the choke effective.

It shouldn't really have anything to do with how long or skinny your legs are, so it must be technique. Long skinny legs make triangles easier.

Sometimes I feel the same way but DON'T give up on the move. Hold them in your triangle and just adjust and squeeze your thights extra tight and pull on their head. If you can, get them to roll and mount them with the triangle. Be persistant.

That is a great video. It is amazing how changing your possesion a little bit can make the difference. I will try that tomorrow. Thanks for the help.
