Fabricio Werdum did it! He beat Fedor Emelianenko, the man many people believed was unbeatable and he did it with one of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s most effective attacks, the triangle choke position. He ended up finishing by applying pressure to Fedor’s elbow with an armlock but it all started with the threat of the triangle choke.

Well more accurately, I believe it was because Fedor punched himself into the triangle choke position which Werdum did a great job of taking advantage of.¬†With little respect for Werdum’s guard, Fedor tried to finish his Brazilian opponent with some intense ground and pound after dropping him to the canvas with a solid shot to the head moments earlier. The only problem was that his repeated one arm bombardment placed himself within the triangle choke several times in a row. He shook out of the first few fairly easily but then found himself in one of the most threatening positions in the game of MMA, trapped within a fully locked triangle choke which left his neck and arm in some serious danger. Even worse was the fact that it was a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champion that was applying the submission hold on him.

Escaping that type of ¬†situation would be like trying to run from an attacker that is holding a gun to you head. Chances are ultra slim that you’ll be able to do but there’s always a chance.

In this video I show you the escape that I use when I am completely stuck inside a fully locked triangle choke position. A final shot at avoiding this excellent submission hold. It must be done as soon as you feel your trapped arm passed across the opponent’s stomach and before he is able to start attacking that arm by straightening it out.

It’s one of over 20 videos from my Submisson Escape workshop that is available in the PREMIUM SHOP.
