Sorry, just looking for a little clarification on that.
There was a whole thread on it.
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)?
c'mon. a yes or no will suffice.
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.
that pretty much sums it up.
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!
