Key Points

• In step 1 the goal is to be sneaky, don’t telegraph what’s coming, work on moving that foot without moving your leg.

• Hanging the leg over the back of the neck and being heavy is the most important key of this technique. If the leg is too low, down the back, then his opponent can posture up and he’ll lose the triangle.
