Next he plants his foot on the mat and escapes his hips to the side of his triceps grip. He lets go of the arm and reaches across the back of the head, cupping his hand in his opponent's armpit. Now he can let go of the head and push the wrist in, allowing him to throw his leg behind the head. His hand in the armpit grabs his shin to secure the triangle until he can adjust his hips and lock it tight with his other leg.

Polishing up some details on the triangle, Rene first shows that he does not want to keep his hips off the mat very long or his opponent will have an easier time smashing him. When he grabs his safety lock, he makes sure that both feet are flexed and pointing up. He brings his heels down, knees together and then knees to his chest to make the triangle as tight as possible. If he does all this correctly, he should not have to pull the head down to finish.
