If I had to pick a single favorite submission, it would have to be the triangle. It can be caught from many different positions, I feel very secure using some of the largest muscles in my body against my partner’s neck, and if someone doesn’t want to tap from a triangle – no problem, they’ll just take a little nap 🙂
A lot of people say that yoga is great for cross training with jiu jitsu. It builds flexibility, teaches you to breathe, and isn’t too hard on your body (jiu jitsu is hard enough). But where do you start? There are so many kinds of yoga it can seem overwhelming.
What kind of yoga is best depends on your goals, preferences, and flexibility. What kind of yoga you can actually practice depends on what’s available in your area or what online resources you’re willing to pay for.
