One of the most important elements of your development in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is learning when and how to use different guards. To define, a guard is a position where you use your legs as a barrier to prevent an opponent from passing. Aside from its obvious defensive properties, the guard is a highly offensive position in which you can use sweeps, submissions, and transitions to defeat your opponent.
If you want to reach the next step in your BJJ progress, then you’ve got to learn how to chain submission attacks together. For instance, learning how to chain Triangle Choke and Omoplata attacks is a natural choice
The Triangle Choke and Omoplata are two submissions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that you can frequently “tie” together… That is, when one fails, you can often go for the other.
Here’re some tips on tying them together, as demonstrated by Ryan Hall:
