    question about the triangle. triangle is a chock on the side of the neck? the opponent's armpit has to be above the groin area to create the chock?

    a triangle can be a choke, a strangle, a smother, a cervical, a face crush...

    Uhhh, what? The triangle is a blood choke. A strangle to be precise, but no one calls it a strangle. How would the triangle be a cervical lock? And if it's a smother or face crush then you're doing it wrong.

    But you should really get an actual instructor instead of dicking around with techniques you find on the internet, because at best you'll probably just do it wrong and at worst you'll end up hurting someone.

    Yeah it's a strangle. "Triangle strangle" sounds better actually! :)
    Blood is cut off by the opponents own shoulder/deltoid on one side and the back of your leg/knee on the other.

    Triangle = Sankaku Jime (a classic Judo strangle - refined in BJJ).

    The legs compress the arteries in the neck. One side is compressed by the shoulder the other by Tori's leg. When applying the technique you need to pull your opponents arm across your body or there will be space between the shoulder and artery and the technique won't work.
