LASSO YERSELF A FANCY TRIANGLE, DO YOU?
I think it's safe to say the triangle submission is the holy grail, number one, best submission there is in the BJJ universe. Let me put it this way: if Jesus had not been so concerned about saving people souls and forgiveness and all that stuff, but instead was a Jiu Jitsu mat rat, he would have exclusively employed the triangle. That's a fact. Or, at least it's my unfounded opinion. You know what I mean.
Check this out. It's a slick spinning triangle setup from the lasso wrist control position from Team HK (a Relson Gracie Affiliate in Honolulu, HI) purple belt, Kevin "Tangy" Tang. Adding a spinning component to any technique is always good, and is 100% impressive to the ladies. The lasso is on one of my favorite setups. I'm trying Tangy's exact variation on the first unfortunate soul I roll with tonight, and you should too.
