Here are 2 great Triangle setups for no Gi, from the closed guard.
It can be tough to set up a Triangle choke in No Gi grappling because you don’t have the grips that you have in Gi BJJ for control. You have to use underhooks and overhooks and adjust how you hold onto someone’s wrist. Take a look at this first setup video.
In this awesome video, Brandon Quick shows us how to do a no gi pendulum sweep and finishes off with some fantastic armbar options. It all starts with an arm drag and the level of control is great. I really like the clear and easy to understand way that he instructs. If you’re looking for a Gi version, you can check out this post with Marcus Almeida.
