BJJ Basics: Genie Lock From Threatened Triangle Attack

Posted Posted in arm bar, BJJ Self Defense, Submissions, Submissions from Guard

BJJ Basics: In today’s video we are adding on to a previous video where we attacked our partner with a Triangle Choke. In this instance our partner stalled our attack by grabbing our pants/thigh in an endeavor to maintain some space between their neck, their own shoulder and our thigh. Therefore we chose to transition to a Genie lock (aka reverse armbar, cutting armbar, inverse armbar, etc, etc…) while maintaining the triangle leg configuration. Our goal is to either capitalize on their shifted focus to defending the triangle to give us a high percentage attack with the Genie lock and/or to distract them with that attack as another way to finish the triangle.

I hope you LIKE it! 😉
