    Thanks. It worked on a heavy 4 stripe white belt this week real nice. Not so good against a high level heavy blue last night lol. I rewatched Matt’s video like 15 times and think I need to try more of the chest assisting the hand to slide it in bc I had trouble sliding the hand through last night when the triangle was on tight. I tried the foot over his face escape which was thwarted him. I am, lol normally the nemesis of this particular training partner lol (friends outside the dojo we are) and the only way he gets me is by triangles.
