I've noticed that a lot of people are getting into MMA and BJJ in particular. Through my training I've learned a lot of techniques that I would like to share with you guys. I'm going to try and post one every day, but it's likely that I will miss a few. Either way I hope some of you guys learn something and if you have any questions feel free to ask here or by private message. Arm Bar from Back Mount Here's the situation. You have a back mount on your opponent with hooks in place. He is defending against the rear naked choke and you can't break it easily. That is when you try to apply the arm bar to him. Step 1: Apply an under hook with your left arm under his left armpit and keep his shoulder in place. Step 2: Let go of the hook with your right foot and shift your hips a little clockwise in preparation for the arm bar. Step 3: Push his head down with your right arm and throw your leg over his head. Step 4: Fall back and apply arm bar. Notes on the arm bar: 1. Make sure not to cross your legs over his arm. That is bad news. 2. Close your knees together and lift your hips for added torque. 3. Make sure his thumb is pointing up. If you guys have anything that you think I should change or add please let me know and I will edit my post. Update with pics below (it's not me BTW ): This shows how to hook the legs and how to position the arms. This shows how the move should look when it is finished.
