    I saw that, but it only described what a bolt lock is if I'm correct. So I know the bolt lock....is it the same as a reverse triangle (the one I don't know)?

    Jesus.

    I read an archive thread about the "Shawn Williams" guard, and one of the staple moves from there was said to the be the reverse triangle. Now, a BOLT lock is what seemed to make sense to me from there--and I could see that being called a reverse triangle.

    So, what is it goddamnit?

    I mean, please.

    Yes, a reverse triangle is a BOLT lock.

    the bolt lock specifically focuses on cranking the neck, while the reverse triangle is generally used to choke.

    bolt lock = neck crank
    reverse triangle = choke

    a noob reverse triangle= neck crank/BOLT lock

    a reverse triangle by someone who knows jiu jitsu= choke.

    The answer is no. There is no such thing as a BOLT lock, I've chosen to rename it the ILGrappler Lock.

    The ILGrappler lock is NOT a reverse triangle. The setups are different. I don't know how the setups are different, since they are the same, but the ILGrappler lock definitely ends up in a neck crank. It's genious!
