Starting with the classic judo sleeve grip, Xande reaches behind his opponent's back and grabs his belt. He steps his feet in the same as he would for a seoi nage, but he makes sure that his hip passes his opponent's hip, preventing him from stepping around Xande. Now by bending over, he picks his opponent up on his hip and continues his momentum, throwing him over his lower back and down to the floor in front of him.

This time after Rene bites and gets the diamond position, his opponent hides his arm on the outside of the leg. Rene gets his safety lock and readjusts his position the same as before. He reaches across to grab the arm and his other hand grabs the wrist to attack a kimura. His opponent will usually defend by straightening his arm, and this gives Rene the opportunity to drag the arm across and finish 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.
