Are they easy to apply and as effective as a normal triangle ?

If you were in that position, would you rather go for something else ? e.g. anklelock

I've tried many-a-time, but never got a solid lock on.

Maybe it's cos' I've never actually been taught the move properly.:-|

reverse triangles are v.effective, i use them from underneath side control.

Is it simply a reverse triangle? As in trapping an arm and the neck? Really never got me anywhere and people just seem to squirm out of it.

What am I missing? Let's have some serious decent points Andy.

firstly chokes aren't like armbars, you cant whack them on and the guy taps, with a choke it is better to use 50% power for twice as long. pull the arm in tight to their neck

Well I kinda knew that, the choke is a waiting game sometimes, but how does that work with the reverse triangle?

I never knew it was actually a proper technique, I've done it plenty of times, but never managed to keep them pinned there.

P.S. Was the enquiry on IntelCompute.com geniune?

I might know what you're talking about. It's possible to sit on a triangle choke from the top. I've done it almost by accident once. I locked my knee in around my opponents head while they was trying to crawl into the guard and that did some kind of counter into side control. So with my knee locking up my opponents chin I stepped over into mount and got the arm in there too. Locked the knee in again, pulled the head up....somehow it was a choke.
