Did you catch the triangle choke in Black Panther?
Black Panther looks set to be one of the biggest films of the year after it delivered $235m (£167m) in North America over the four-day President’s Day holiday weekend.

The film is definitely a refreshing installment in the sometimes jaded Marvel universe. However what caught our eye was some Jiu-Jitsu technique in one of the key scenes. Apparently the cast spent time training in a number of martial arts including Jiu-Jitsu and Judo.
In the key scene the hero and prospective king must face down a challenger to the throne in ritual combat. The scene spectacularly takes place on a mountain and features a series of combat styles. However the faith of the king’s opponent is sealed with what seems to be a modified triangle choke with an armbar.
