Check out the video above of Coach Joe Cunningham going over a variation for setting up and finishing your triangle chokes. In this situation he is starting from the full guard position using the traditional method to break the opponents posture and over hook one arm. From there he uses the old school hip switch drills to trap the arms and tighten the choke without having the make big adjustments. Watch the video below!

We try not to close our doors here at the Academy very often, but we do take some time during the holidays to spend time with out loved ones and hope you do the same!
Here’s the list of days we are closed and/or classes that are cancelled. Other than what you see listed below we will have classes as usual.
Tuesday, Dec 24th: All afternoon and night classes CANCELLED (Including Homeschool class)
Wednesday, Dec 25th: CLOSED
Tuesday, Dec 31st: All afternoon and night classes CANCELLED (Including Homeschool class)

Again, unless we have specifically said we are closed or a class is cancelled you can assume we are having class. Barring bad weather, that is. That’s a different story all together!
Thanks and enjoy your holidays!
