Need help with this triangle-ish position

Say Ive isolated his left arm with his right arm now caught in between his torso. Ive got my left calf clamping hard on his head, and Im holding my left ankle with my right hand. Now the only thing left for me to secure a tight triangle is for me to bring my right inner knee over my left ankle.

Problem is, opponent is in a sprawl-like position and my right leg is caught between his knees. Is there any offensive transition I can go from here or is it time to bail?

Passing the closed guard by trapping opponents are with their lapel.

I’ve been playing with trapping my opponents arm with their own lapel. Anyone know any vids or instructionals that cover this game?

Anyone use Hyperfly DoOrDie brand gi’s/rashguards?

How do they fit, hold up, do the color hold up? Compared to AP/SYR?

Looking to buy a gi from them.

The panda is great for judo too !


Shout-out to Inverted gear, /u/invertedgearnelson and /u/invertedgearwitty, I just received my lightweight gi last friday and couldn’t wait for my BJJ class to try it on so I had to wear it while teaching my kid’s judo class ! BTW they loved the logo, I geard some ask their parents to get a gi like mine ;)

Amazing fit and quality as far as I can tell, excellent confort and a lightweight gi in much more pleasant when it is hot as hell like these days here. Almost no shrinking, sturdy enough for grappling or standing, even though I wouldn’t wear the lightweight on a competition class (too thin for those aggressive grips and throws for my taste, but the 3.0 is solid enough, I’ve tested it). Only downside is the blue cord bleeding some dye on the pants and collar in the second wash cycle… I’ve been able to clean the collar but not the pants, sadly :( Hopefully, a sun bath will help with that.

Oh.. And you guys should definitely shoot for a canadian reseller; those damn customs were hard AF on my wallet in the end !!

Looking for a takedown gif or video

I’m trying to find a gif or a video that was posted a few month back. It’s a shot of two big white belts at a tournament trying to take each other down by going in a circle, almost spinning. Eventually it shows these guys spinning and twirling in various environments. I guess it’s a meme or something, but I can’t locate it.

Why have I never seen a ‘No Pasaran’ BJJ T shirt

Question in the title – read this article for context. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/They_shall_not_pass

‘”They shall not pass” (French: Ils ne passeront pas!; Spanish: ¡No pasarán!) is a slogan used to express determination to defend a position against an enemy.’ It got famous as used in WW1 vs ze germans, and again in Spain for its use by anti-Franco Spanish fighters.

With such a bjj-appropriate slogan, with positive historical connotations ( famously used vs fascists etc) how have I never seen this incorporated into a BJJ t shirt ?

BJJ companies step your game up.

Recent knee surgery has not went well – Depression has set in on me

So I had arthroscopic knee surgery on 09/11 to partially remove a torn meniscus. Day 1 was easy as was Day 2. Night of Day 2 I woke to super intense pains that had me on the verge of passing out. I saw my surgeon and rheumatologist who determined I had a terrible gout flare in the repaired knee. That gout flare hung on for some 10 days which can go down as maybe the 10 worst days of my life.

I ended up in the ER over pain and after 8.5 hours was sent home with no relief. Surgeon decided to drain my knee and took 30ccs of bloody fluid from the joint. Since I was unable to move the joint it seized up on me and on day 15, I still have very limited movement and cannot walk without assistance.

I was unable to work for some 2 weeks and only returned tonight and I am struggling with pain and swelling from sitting. I have noticed some seeds of depression settling in on me and am trying my best to not get down. I just wish I knew ahead of time what this was going to be like so I could have prepared myself mentally for this fiasco.

TL;DR Knee scope, complications, now depressed and angry
