Inside the University 650 - Avoid Getting Stacked in the Triangle

After locking the triangle, sometimes your opponent will try to stack you to break free. In this case, you can push your own knee that is over the shoulder, and keep your arm stiff. Now any forward momentum your opponent gains should also push your body and help prevent him from stacking you.

Touching on some key details to finish the triangle after he has adjusted his hips and locked his legs, Rene first makes sure his feet are flexed so the the back of his legs are tight. Next he flexes his legs to bring his ankles down, and then squeezes his knees together. This should make his triangle tight enough that he doesn't need to pull the head down to finish, but that is also an option.

Starting from his closed guard, Rene controls his opponent's arm on his torso, raises his hips and "bites" his legs to the diamond position. The diamond position is his first step to the triangle, where his top thigh is connected to the neck and his feet are crossed behind the head. Next he reaches across to control the inside arm and drag it across his body. He uses his legs to pull his opponent down and his other hand grabs his shin to create his safety lock. Now he can place his foot on the hip to adjust his angle and lock his triangle.
