Short Legs and Triangles do Mix
The dreaded triangle choke. For the person with short legs it's not been a go to move ever. In the past, when the coach says we are going to work triangles, I would cringe inside. You see, I believed that my short legs were not made for triangles. Well, I could not have been more wrong. This week I learned several different kinds of triangles. Not going to say it was easy. Not going to say I mastered them all. But I definitely had some "aha" moments and now I have some new tools in my bag of tricks. As a self proclaimed slow learner in jiu jitsu, it is no wonder it took me five years to see and understand the many nuances of the triangle choke. My eyes are opened to the infinite possibilities that are just waiting for me to reach out and grab. I'm excited! What will another five years bring? I can't wait to find out. Wishing you all peace, love and great Jiu Jitsu.
