Triangle From Closed Guard With Strikes

On the most recent podcast, we interviewed CJ Murdock, who is a black belt currently training in Brazil with Fernando Terere.

When we do this, we’re usually going to ask the guest to demonstrate one of her or his favorite techniques: with CJ, that’s not possible, since he’s in another country. In a situation like that, I’ll demonstrate the grappling technique and Trevor Hayes will demonstrate the striking.

Here’s a classic, core technique that never stops working and never diminishes in importance: the triangle from the vale tudo guard.

Trevor knows this punchy-kicky business far better than I do. He runs the Muay Thai program at Forged Fitness Cary, and here he shows the teep kick and the roundhouse kick.
