Triangle Arm Bar from Back

In the previous technique, you used a leg to trap one of your opponent's arms down by your hips to make the rear naked choke easier to manage. When you do this, your opponent might realize his vulnerability and attempt to bridge out and escape. If this should occur, you can slide the leg you're using to trap your opponent's arm up to his shoulder and assume the reverse-triangle position. From there, you can work to finish your opponent with the reverse-triangle submission or go for an arm bar. Most of the time the arm bar is the better option because your opponent rolls right into it.

As I fall over to my right side, I begin forcing Beach's left arm toward my hips using my left hand.

Having forced Beach's left arm down toward my waist, I begin maneuvering my left leg over his left arm.

Before turning to coaching and the practice of law John was one of the most successful college and Golden Gloves boxers the sport has ever known.
