23/08/2017 - BJJ Globetrotter Camp | Heidelberg 2017 | Arm Triangles (Lilo Asensi)

Class #884
BJJ Globetrotter Camp (Olympiastützpunkt Rhein-Neckar) Lilo Asensi, Heidelberg, Germany, 23/08/2017

Lilo's class the morning after her first was on arm triangles. They are framing into your neck, pushing slightly. Make a 'v' with your hand (useful tip from Jeff Knight here), creating a firm wedge. Put that just under their elbow, then use the force vector (thanks Josh!) to drive it across. As soon as you have that arm across, jam your ear into their arm. Bring your other arm around their neck, then on that other side, push your shoulder into their neck too, everything tight (a tip from Daniel Bertina this time, who was being Lilo's uke).

Wriggle your legs over to the other side, then move round to a perpendicular position. Slide your hips down into the choke. If they block, you can move to the back. You have their neck in the crook of your elbow. Lift them up and transfer your arms, then adjust into that arm triangle again. If you are going for leg drag but they push into shoulder, you can knock the arm, slide down into the choke. If they press into the other shoulder, you can jump into an armbar, hooking your foot into their armpit. If you have them in closed guard, you can sit right up and put on the arm triangle grip, or maybe do it from lower. Then butterfly hook, knock them over to mount and back to the arm triangle.
