BJJ Move #65: 3 Triangle Choke "Thwart" Moves

Here are a few moves to try on someone who's defending against your triangle choke.

WARNING! These techniques could result in serious injury or death if practiced incorrectly or even if performed correctly. They should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.

Triangle Choke - 3 "Thwart" Moves:

Triangle Choke (Thwart) - Armlock:
You are performing a triangle choke with your opponent’s right arm inside, and he postures up (as in earlier post) so you can’t pull down on his head or your shin.
Hook his right triceps with your right hand and grab his right wrist with your left hand, securing his right arm.
Thrust your hips upwards.
Circle your left leg over opponent's head and place your left shin in his throat.
Lock a figure four in front of his chest, placing your right leg over your left shin.
Thrust hips upwards to finish the armlock.

Triangle Choke (Thwart) - Biceps Slicer:
You attempt the triangle choke (with your opponent’s right arm inside); he pulls his head, but not his arm, free, and steps up to the outside of your right foot, standing up onto his left foot.
Put your left foot on the ground and hip out to the left while firmly holding his right arm into your right knee-crook to keep him from taking cross side.
Drive your right shin into his right elbow-crook, triangle your left knee-crook over your right ankle and pull with clasped hands on the back of his right arm to add pressure to the biceps slicer.

Triangle Choke (Thwart) - Omo Plata:
You attempt the triangle choke with your opponent’s right arm trapped inside, but before you can figure four your legs he overhooks your left thigh with his right arm to keep you from tightening it.
Control his right elbow with your left hand, open your legs and pivot 180 degrees clockwise.
Kick your left leg through over his right shoulder and figure four your legs (right knee over left shin).
Sit up to drive your opponent to the floor and lean forward toward his head to finish the omo plata.
