    I was having trouble with finishing a triangle so my instructor showed me a variation where you S grip your hands behind your partially triangled legs, straighten your arms and squeeze. It worked great. It doesn't feel like a choke, more like a chest constriction. Does anyone know what this variation is called? How does it work? Any more details about this technique?

    I find this works well when a guy buries his arm behind your back to defend the triangle. I still think you're better off trying to lock the standard triangle, and work for a kimura on the inside arm if you have trouble finishing the triangle.

    As I was taught, the person needs a hand to mat for it to work. Also is useful against larger people when you can't quite lock the triangle.

    Yup, a guys hand is usually on the mat because he is try to prevent you from bringing his arm across your belly/his throat... usually he'll bury it behind your back.
