As more and more grapplers get better at defending the rear chokes from the back, there is a need to have some other submissions to flow to. Switching to the back triangle is a nice option as long as you can secure the position and control your opponent so they don't escape the back position.
Some grapplers will throw their leg over the same shoulder as the "One on One" grip, I however have had more success with going over the opposite shoulder.
Let me know what you all think of this technique and if you have different options or better set ups or finishes!
I have Nate's back, and even though it looks like we are cuddling, I have the seatbelt grip.
I grab Nate's left wrist with my left hand in the "One on One" position as my right hand goes for the choke, which Nate defends.
I fall to the same side as the trapped arm
I step on Nate's right hip to create a better angle to step over his shoulder. Stepping on his hip also allows me to follow Nate if he tries to roll out.
I step over Nate's right shoulder with my right leg and grab my shin with my left hand. I try to get my leg as tight and close to Nate's neck as possible
I turn to my right side as I step on Nate's left hip with my left foot. at the same time I ...
... Pull my right shin deep into Nate's neck
I triangle my left leg over my right foot and put my foot behind Nate's back
I shoot my left arm under Nate's left elbow pit
wrapping my left arm around Nate's left elbow, I can now finish with the back triangle/shoulder lock.
