The Old Guy Flying Triangle Submission From Single Leg Takedown

The Old Guy Flying Triangle Submission From Single Leg Takedown

Flying Triangle From Single Leg by Mario Delgado

In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, there are few techniques more impressive than the flying triangle. The flying triangle, as will all the more “acrobatic” flying moves, is a unique take on a fundamental concept. Often times, the triangle choke is one of the first chokes you learn. It is a very common submission in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which actually originated in Judo. The concept behind the triangle is very basic: the attacker will use his legs to wrap around his opponent’s neck, leaving one arm in and one arm out. Then, using the thigh, the attacker will apply pressure to the neck, causing a failure of blood flow to the brain. In this case, the opponent will either tap to submit (give up) or pass out.

Over the age of 30, and struggling to keep up with the young, athletic, no-gi submission hunters? Mario Delgado Shows A Brand New & Dynamic & No-Gi Game Soecifically Designed For Masters


Today Mario Delgado is here at BJJ Fanatics Head Quarters to demonstrate a flying triangle from the single leg. Mario Delgado is one of the Renzo Gracie Black Belts and a successful masters competitor. Mario is the first Mexican black belt who was raised in Mexico. He is also the commentator for UFC Espanol and he is a very well recognized analyst for MMA.  Mario is not only all of this, he is also an awesome competitor. Mario has received medals at many of the major IBJJF no gi tournaments and he is 41 years old. Mario is very good at flying attacks so he is going to demonstrate to us one of his flying triangles. Watch the video below and then we will break down Mario Delgado’s flying triangle technique. Check it out now!

A lot of times people see the flying arm bar, and other flying submissions and think that they are too fancy or impossible to do. But Mario is not some high level athlete. He is your average Brazilian Jiu Jitsu player at age 41, but he uses this technique all the time. The most important detail of Mario’s flying triangle is to make sure your leg is on the outside of your opponent when he shoots for the single leg. If it is on the inside you will not be able to hit the triangle. The second most important detail is that Mario straightens his leg so that he is able to get into a good position with the triangle right away.

As you can tell, this is a really impressive technique. It is not as hard as you might think it is, so feel free to give this one a try. As long as you are familiar with the triangle concept, you should be able to pull this one off. Just remember to get your leg outside and keep it straight so that when you land you are in the right position to get a triangle. I hope you found this technique useful. Make sure when you are drilling this you start slow before adding speed and aggression. If you can nail this flying triangle, you will be certain to impress a lot of people. Thank you Mario Delgado for demonstrating this technique for us today!

Don’t Let No-Gi Be A Young Man’s Game Anymore! 3-Volume Instructional Set From ADCC Veteran And UFC Español Analyst Mario Delgado – “The Joe Rogan of Latin America”

People who train a lot between gi and no-gi all tend to agree, no-gi just tends to be a little more slippery, fast, and athletic. Unfortunately, while that can be fun, that would seem to limit it to the young and dynamic fighters on the mat, and most masters competitors can get a little nervous taking the gi off. What if they can’t keep up? What if they face someone faster, or stronger, and they can’t slow them down using some strategy around the grips? These are problems, if you don’t know how to manage them, but we are here now to put an end to all of that. Now, you can watch and learn as Renzo Gracie black belt and UFC Espanol analyst Mario Delgado shows you everything you need to know to use your experience to your advantage and stay one step ahead of your partners in a young man’s game.
