I absolutely love our shirts! They are made of the most comfortable, highest quality fabric out there today. Our shirts are 100% combed and ring-spun cotton. With these shirts, you not only feel the difference in comfort, but also be reminded of one of the most important fundamentals in Jiu Jitsu everytime you wear it!
Can you tap someone out without angles? Yes absolutely. You may have heard me say in the past that "a tap is a tap" but when you add in the perfect angle then not only are you getting the tap but you are using far less energy in the process. Triangle Chokes are the submission that really come into mind when it comes to angles. You don't necessarily need to cut the angle to get the tap. All you have to do is squeeze and pull down on the head and people will tap. Personally I never pull down on the head. As soon as I lock in the triangle, I'm looking to cut that angle by scooping the leg and I start applying pressure. I've had plenty of people pull down on my head and I'm not usually tapping to the choke. I'm usually tapping to the fear of having my head pop off and walking like Frankenstein the next day. Like I said though, a tap is a tap. I guess my point is you will use much less energy with angles and you'll typically accomplish your goal in less time as well. Also on the flip side if you want to take away someones submission take away the angle they need to finish it. This works especially well in Triangle Chokes. If you cut the opposite angle the likelihood of getting the choke drops dramatically.
