MMA Submission Tip – Leg With Shoulder Suppression (Triangle Choke) From Failed Elbow Extension (Arm Bar)

In this video you will learn how to switch your submission attack to a Leg Suppression / Triangle Choke when your opponent defends the Elbow Extension / Arm Bar. It’s very common for an opponent to defend the Arm Bar by pulling their arm back through the hips before the submission is locked in. When this happens there is an opportunity to retain control and chain the submission into a Leg With Shoulder Suppression / Triangle Choke. This requires the person applying the submission to think ahead, react fast and control well with the legs.

This submission combination is great for chaining together in MMA competition or BJJ matches.
