Sankaku Jime

I'm not doing very well with chokes in Judo.

This one was taught as a "continuing action" to a failed Tomoenage and I never did get it quite right.

This choke uses your legs and one of your opponent's arms to apply pressure to the opponent's neck.

The way we did it was as follows:  You are on your back (remember, continuing action from a failed Tomoenage) while your opponent is leaning over you.  Keep hold of their right arm and bring your right leg up and around their neck.  Hook your left leg around your right ankle and use it to draw the choke in tight.

This is as far as I got.  I could never get the choke to properly tighten.  At least part of that was that I didn't have sufficient leg flexibility to get a good position.
