Countering the Stack While Applying the Triangle Choke - Sweep

When I first tried the triangle choke on someone with barely any grappling experience at all, I was surprised to find that he immediately stacked on me. (For those with no idea of grappling terminology, stacking is basically standing up with the person on bottom still attached. Usually seen to break out of a triangle or the guard position.) Of course, I refused to let go...

That was about the first time I hurt myself training. Now, unlike most other people who would go online or ask an instructor about how to get out of this position, I decided to figure it out on my own. As it turns out, I re-discovered the basic stacking counter everyone and their grandmother knows.

Anyway, moving on from the cute story- god, I love Submissions101.
