Who does not love a choke?
Well…the choke-ee, I suppose.
However, the goal here is to make you the choke-er! And to do so may be easier than you think.
This is a tutorial for the basic triangle choke, and to keep it basic and accessible, one must understand a basic principle of Jiu-Jitsu: “position before submission.”
This is a simple concept, but it can find itself in both the macro and micro. What do I mean by that? A macro example of “position before submission” would be having the opponent in your guard and breaking down his posture before you jump for the triangle choke.
A simple micro example would be what is emphasized in the below video: one arm in, one arm out.
