    A triangle is a choke with the leg and the arm, in a scissors position you can triangle, but its all about strength at that point.

    we learnt this a few weeks ago
    our coach called it the Teepee choke
    it is a good alternative for people with short legs that find it hard to lock in a triangle

    you start like a triangle(arm through etc) but you cross your legs and stretch them up and together as hard as you can and pull down with your arms behind your legs

    Tee-pee choke.
    I think Barrett Yoshida may have started this a while back, but I could be wrong. It's on the rubber-guard DVD also.

    It looks like a great alternative to the triangle because sometimes you can't lock it in properly because the guy backed up before you could get your legs positioned.

    I love this choke! I go for it first, before trying to lock in the triangle, just because it's quick to tighten and it's unexpected. And you really don't need a whole lot of strength to do this choke. One of my friends actually has weak legs and he got me in a tepee and the squeeze is intense!
