Check out the video above of Coach Joe Cunningham going over a variation for setting up and finishing your triangle chokes. In this situation he is starting from the full guard position using the traditional method to break the opponents posture and over hook one arm. From there he uses the old school hip switch drills to trap the arms and tighten the choke without having the make big adjustments. Watch the video below!
