BJJ Triangle Choke – New way to master it
There are a lot of people today who like to watch wrestling and mixed martial arts matches; and viewers often wonder what are the different moves that performers in this profession can use to incapacitate their opponents and allow them to submit. There are arm twisting, neck snapping, or leg crunching moves that will allow you to tap your opponents into submission.
A triangle choke which is also known as a sankaku-jime in judo is one such move. This is a judo move that is a sort of figure-four choke whose goal is to strangle your opponent and render them unconscious. To do this, the person applying the move will go around the opponent’s neck while his legs are in a figure four configuration, which is like a triangle. This lateral vascular restriction technique decreases blood flow from the carotid arteries to the brain. As a result, he either passes out or becomes disoriented, preventing him from thinking of ways to counter the move. If this is managed correctly, it will leave you unconscious or too weak to find a way to win a match.
The moment you use this on your opponent, make sure they don’t get a chance to break it to make it more effective. If your opponent gets a chance to recover, he may not get a second chance to administer it again.
There are videos of this movement available online that can be easily viewed by anyone. There is a demonstration by Tsunetane Oda, a judo specialist who passed away in 1955, showing us how to apply this move for the first time. The video will give you an idea of when to start the move, at what instances you can start administering it, and describe the effects your opponent will feel once you execute it.
When you watch TV, especially mixed martial arts competitions, fighters from the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu group are highly trained to use this move and can execute it very well. This group of practitioners practice this movement a lot, and are even trained to break the movement.
For the novice, it would be best to sit back and pray that your leading man in the fight wins once it’s applied. It’s a different thing if you yourself try the move with your friends. It could cost you your friendship if you apply it correctly. It would be better to let the experts use this in their sports profession.
