Overhook Guard – Triangle Choke

One of the simplest and most effective guards for someone to learn is the Overhook guard. It’s pretty much a basic clinch that ties up the opponent and doesn’t allow them to do much of anything.

When they do struggle to escape, they can put themselves in arm bars, omoplatas, and of course, the triangle choke.

I show my method of setting up the triangle choke, which works for pretty much everyone as I’m not super flexible, and some finishing details most people aren’t aware of – that will have you finishing more triangles quickly.
