Class 07 - Triangle Choke - Guard [GU-10]; Haymaker Punch Defense [GU-30]


Triangle Choke - Guard - If you achieve the mount but are unable to maintain control, you should resort to the guard position. From the guard, you can neutralize punches and submit your opponent with one of several techniques. In this lesson we will discuss the Triangle Choke which is one of the most amazing techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, since it gives any individual the ability to render their opponent unconscious from the bottom of the fight. In this lesson, you will learn the finishing steps first and then you will learn two setup variations of the Triangle Choke.


Haymaker Punch Defense - In many cases, the precise movement and aim of your opponent’s strikes are hard to predict. Sometimes, however, your opponent is so eager to attack you that their punch is totally predictable. The “Haymaker” punch is used when a determined attacker comes at you from a distance with the objective of putting all of their body weight behind one killer punch. Because of the haymaker punch’s power and predictability, the best option is to slip underneath it and get behind your opponent.
