In BJJ, most experienced practitioners are used to defending front triangles. These are the type of triangles set up from a guard position, either closed, half, or open guard.
You can usually set up the front triangle from a spider guard or from a lasso guard etc.
The back triangle is another common triangle set up used in Brazilian jiu-jitsu especially in the past few years. This is usually applied when you have your opponent’s back and trap an arm and then lift the other arm, falling to the side to trap a triangle. This triangle is very difficult to get out of.
A few years ago, Braulio Estima shocked the world When he was able to submit many world-class opponents at ADCC 2009 with a reverse triangle set up from an open guard. Victims of this reverse triangle included Andre Galvao and Xande Ribeiro.
