Neck Triangle (leg)

I have a question guys, I just started jiu-jitsu...literally haha.

Today was my 2nd night. While we worked on a sweep or defense to the choke, I was working on getting the choke set-up correctly and there was a sharp pain my right shin which was under my left-leg. (I had my left leg securing the choke by wrapping the underside of the knee around my right-ankle.)

Sorry if this extremely detailed and mundane, but I don't know much about the terminology as how to describe the moves in any easier way right now.

How do you deal with the pain I experienced? I had to pop out of the choke way too early and was left wide open for the final part of the "defense" to the choke which is a dropping-knee to the ribs.

Thank-you for any help that you can give.



Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die

I think I can picture what you're talking about. Sounds like you were doing a triangle choke and you had the back of your knee too far out on your foot and you were cranking your own foot forward and popped tendon in your shin.
Make sure when you do the triangle choke that you lock your leg over your instep and not out too far on your foot or you'll crank your own ankle.
Check out "triangle choke" on youtube. Hope that helps.

I haven't rolled since I posted this, can anyone give some more advice.

The advice you gave "mastodon" was insightful.

The triangle is certainly hard to pull off correctly when you are first starting out. Have your instructor show you how to reposition your body so that the area where your shin and ankle meet, is directly secured underneath the back of your knee. It is very difficult to explain over a forum. If you don't sink a triangle fully and you still try and finish with it, your legs can get very tired and you will risk injuring your ankle or shin, in your case. Also make sure you regularly ice your shin, if it is still injured...the cold will expidite the healing process of your muscle

Strtch a lil more....And as stated before make sure you stich your leg around the neck. Once you sink it in feel free to reach up and use your hand to pull your foot down. Have the back of your knee as close to your ankle as possible.....Also nothing is free from pain when you first start. You will get used to the everyday pains that come with it!
