    Default New Techniques?

    Hey guys, i was wondering, is their any new submissions or techniques made?

    The only recent one I heard of was the wicked triangle.

    Edit: Variations are good to, like if you know a new arm bar shout it out.

    Very few techniques are truly new. A lot of them have new names and get more attention, but like the old phrase goes "there's nothing new under the sun."




    The only technique I can think of that might be considered truly new would be the gogoplata, as supposedly invented by Nino Schembri. But that is at least 10 years old I believe. Even things like Eddie Bravo's twister have been around for years in catch wrestling.

    I understand. What I am saying is that there are next to no techniques that are truly new. No matter what name they have. Everyone has two arms, two legs, and one torso. There are only so many possibilities.


    And I would be willing to bet that the 'wicked triangle' is not new. In fact, I would put money on it. There is no guarantee that someone somewhere hasn't used it before. Many moves are created by different people at different times, indepenent of each other.



    Lol, and no, the fist in the throat one is not new.

    Popular opinion usually says: Rare = New (see the Gogo or Twister). By this formula your best bet to find "new" submissions is to look up grappling arts that are less common such as catch wrestling.

    The day someone finds out a way to do a Boston Crab in MMA I bet a lot of people will call it a new sub Me and my buddies still just call it "The Ultimate Pwn" though

    I too am detecting the distinct aroma of exaggeration.

    What tipped you off? Calling a Gogoplata "putting my foot on someon'e throat like in the pictures"... you would think someone who would win a "big tournament" would know what a Gogoplata is called... and you would think the "big tournament" would have a name like the "US Open"...

    also who almost get's tapped by a cross colar choke when they have top mount. ALl you have to do is look up at the ceiling and break the grips, or get one hand inbetween the grips and put it behind your head.... It's not even a hard move to defend when someone has mount on you.

    Also, you would think you wern't fighting opponents who are "allot bigger" then you since you are fighting in a sport with weight classes.
