Guard Triangle

Movie of escape from Guard Triangle.

This is another case where if Nage is strong enough Nage can lift Uke and drop Uke on Uke's head. The head drop is difficult here because Nage's head is pulled down giving Nage a poor lifting position and if Uke can get good position the triangle choke comes on very fast. Uke only has a few seconds to get this right. Because Uke is over 90 pounds heavier than Nage there is no way Nage can life this Uke.

Fig. 1 Start Fig. 2 Choke Fig. 3 Kuta Punch

  1. Fig. 1 shows the start with Nage in the triangle.
  2. Fig. 2 shows Nage reach down and choke Uke. This also helps Nage move around Uke. It is obvious here that Nage could do dirty tricks such as eye gouge. The choke is not necessary.
  3. In Fig. 3 Nage punches Uke in the face.

    Fig. 4 Head Crank

  4. Fig. 4 shows Nage's left forearm pushing Uke's face to apply a head crank. This turns Uke onto Uke's side so that Nage can finish Uke.
