Striking and triangle counter to double under pass

This is how I normally try to counter the double under guardpass when striking is allowed. It sets up a nice triangel choke.

Opponent starts out in my open guard.

He grabs under both my legs for the double under pass.

I immediately underhook one arm to block the pass.

From here I have a great position to strike him.

If he don't want to keep getting hit in the head, he will have to take his free arm out to block my strikes.

That is my clue to let go of my underhook, hold him close (e.g. behind his neck as on the picture) and throw my right leg over.

Then close in the triangle as I normally would.
