Nova Uniao + Arm Triangle

The arm triangle is a submission that many members of Nova Uniao have had success with.

These days, the major standouts of Nova Uniao in MMA are such names as Jose Aldo, Marcos Loro, Renan Barao and Marlon Sandro.

A few years ago, Vitor Shaolin had quite a few submission victories with the arm triangle choke. It is very simple, and very effective.

Take a look at This Article (Click Here) to read about some history as well as see examples of Shaolin using the arm triangle in some of his fights.

Enjoy, and we hope your training in the new year is going well!
