Rener and Ryron Gracie Debate The Helicopter Armbar and Helicopter Triangle

With even a short spell of training with the Gracie brothers, you will find that you can verify their tendencies. Ryron, being the older of the two, grew up being influenced by his uncles using his little brother Rener as an outlet for his dominance. The armbar was and is his weapon of choice.

Rener has always been fascinated with the triangle concept, the perfect geometric roundabout of efficiency, the cornerstone shape of the very emblem that bears his family crest. His protege Brian Ortega often goes by the nickname “T-city,” or Triangle City, a nickname bestowed on him legend has it by Rener himself.

The debate rages, if we were to perform an overhead sweep, which corresponding submission is preferable between the triangle and the armbar?
