Without a doubt, Fedor could have avoided getting caught in the triangle by being a little bit careful with his ground and pound but I think it's a good time to share a technique that I like to use when I screw up and find myself caught in the fully sunk triangle choke.

A last chance that sometimes can help you avoid tapping out three seconds later.

Nice. Lets try to keep this forum on the DL so no one uses these techniques on us.
Just trick them and do a Chris Leben. Fake the triangle and just hammer fist them in the face. :thumb02:

One important point in the technique is to definitely make sure that you've got your leg over the guy before you sit back, otherwise he'll sit up with you and you'll be triangle mounted....don't ask me how I know :(

WOOHOOO! I had been using the same tired old escape and it hardly works anymore.
When you took his back out of it, that sealed the deal for me, I can't wait to try it out.
Thanks again!

Very sweet escape, thanks for sharing it. I could have used it wednesday night when I must have tapped 5 times to triangles.

This is why I love having a BJJ blackbelt on the board, so that I can see cool techniques and escapes.

That said, this is not one I particularly like. It's very low percentage, especially against guys who are good at attacking the triangle because as soon as you stand up, most of those guys are going to contract their abs and their lower back to put pressure on the back of the neck to keep you from getting the poster up (and using the grip on the shin to control the posture more) and hook the leg above the thigh.

If you're really, really quick with this move, you might get out one time out of ten, but against someone who's good at control the posture from the triangle (even at the blue or purple belt level, you're still in deep, deep trouble from that position). I'm not saying you should give up, and this is definitely a legit defense to try, just that you should be aware when training this technique that if you have to do this (as Jeff alluded to) you've already screwed up pretty badly.

Something that's helped me alot to avoid getting caught in triangles is that when I'm in someone's guard, I never have one arm inside and one arm outside the legs - both in or both out is fine... but never just one inside --> just asking to be triangle choked.

I used this escape yesterday. I had to go for it quickly, but it definitely worked. Didn't look as smooth as the videos, but the idea was the same.

Triangle choke is kind of scary. You can't even breathe. Jeez.... That's brutal. im new and wanna learn how to get out of it as soon as i can. Tried your link but it says 404 not found.
