Video: How to Triangle Choke?

Ever want to know what a triangle choke is? It sounds too geometrical, but it’s a deadly submission move and a favorite by many fighters. This move was made famous by Royce Gracie in an early MMA bout against Dan Severn. While in the guard, the performer traps an arm and extends their opposite side leg across their opponent’s neck so that it lands on the other side of the combatant’s body. Then their other leg crosses over that leg to tighten the hold. (called Sankaku-Jime in judo) is a type of figure-four chokehold which strangles the opponent by encircling the opponent’s neck and one arm with the legs in a configuration similar to the shape of a triangle. The technique is a type of lateral vascular restraint that constricts the blood flow from the carotid arteries to the brain. In effect, this choke traps an opponent’s neck in a triangle utilizing the perfomer’s leg and their opponent’s own arm.
