09/05/2019 - Thursday daytime (step over triangle from scarf hold)

Class #1144
Artemis BJJ (Easton Road), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 09/05/2019

Today I tested out one I haven't taught in a good few years, but have used for a long time in BJJ. I was shown it relatively early in my BJJ journey: it's called (or at least, I call it) the step over triangle. I refreshed my memory with some good videos on the topic, which proved helpful. After this session, I feel confident about teaching it next week.

Some pointers I'll keep in mind for teaching next week: close off that space between your legs and their head (particularly when you turn your hips over for the second leg configuration). To prevent the space opening, get your scarf hold as high up into their armpit as you can and stay tight. Grab the elbow, pull it close and keep it clamped, which will give you some leeway to adjust your leg position. From there, kick out your top leg if you need to ratchet up the triangle lock, which must be tight if you're going for the choke (if not, you can cheat a little, but it still needs to be solid enough to prevent them wiggling free).
