    As soon as I watched this I saw a triangle from the back and an armbar. When I tried it I was correct. At 46 seconds, the guy behind could throw a triangle. It may seem weird because the legs are backwards, but it works (watch Demian Maia's videos). Then at 55 seconds when he pops his head out he the guy on the back can take the arm.

    u cant get the triangle because at the 36 second mark you slide down and catch his foot.

    if you have the arm secure there is no way for the person to get your arm and the foot is blocked

    at all times you are holding the other guys arm and leg

    Two basics for defending the back that help me are focusing on closing off my neck and the space between my elbows and ribs. Most attacks need access to those areas to be successful.

    Slide your shoulders to the mat on the side that he has underhooked.

    There are easier ways.
    I am sure it works well for Marcus, but he is a red and black belt. There is probably a lot of stuff he could get away with that mere mortals could not.
