    Very good defense. My instructor Ralph Gracie uses this as well.

    Is Ralph as terrifying as he looks in his fights?

    Edit: I'm almost certain I've seen Ryan Hall teach this as well.

    Thanks, Sean! It's a solid escape from a pretty terrible position that has served me well.

    Good escape but opens up a fairly easy wrist lock counter.

    I believe it. Kurt O looks scary too, but seems very cool. :) Something about those Ralph Gracie guys.

    Well, every technique has a counter, of course. I can verify that I've never been wristlocked when doing this move, but then again I am generally very vigilant with my man hands.

    Thanks! I always screw up trying to embed videos when I try for some reason.

    Yeah, true everything has a counter, that's why it's still a good escape. This is my most used escape from triangle and I've never been wrist-locked in it either, but I've caught quite a few others in one so the reason I even mention the counter is because I believe the key to avoiding it is being aware that it's open.

    Makes sense. You definitely want to be vigilant of the available submissions you're leaving open! :)

    notice the bottom guy does nothing with his hands during this defense. (?)

    i'd grab the dude's hand and rip to to my chest. triangle --> complete.

    The belt grab doesn't hurt, but it's not really relevant in the grand scheme. It's the positioning of my arm relative to his hip.

    But hey, to each his own. If you don't think it'll work for you, don't bother trying it.
