...a little too much though.
I just did NOT get them when I started. They really are pretty odd when you think about them. The motions of adjusting and locking in and of themselves feel quite normal now...which is great, because I get to move on to other issues with them. These, I believe, come from my greatest asset in triangling: my long legs.
My 36" inseam gives me lots of leeway in getting my legs in position. That leeway's been coming back to bite me though. Since I'm able to get my ankles crossed from longer distances, I'm prone to get myself into triangle starting position without shooting my hips up, something that wouldn't even be an option for someone with shorter limbs. I'm noticing that this is giving people plenty of room to defend in all sorts of ways...arms in, knees, all kinds of stuff. I'm even noticing this in my triangles from mount.
I'm finding that I need to either learn to adjust after my ankles are crossed and the arm is isolated (seems like a bad idea), do it right, and shoot my hips properly, or start working on going straight for the lock, which isn't easy, but I can pull it off on all but the biggest of guys.
