    Hey, it worked for Dave.
    I suggest we call all flying armbars from this day forth: an "Omega".

    (I would suggest a "Gidi" but I can't do one, so that wouldn't fly very well - pun intended)

    By releasing an instructional DVD before they do, it seems.

    Its hard to say, not actually being in the situation. An 84 year old man can be dangerous. If the officer legitimately felt that he was actually going to be attacked he did the right thing. Unfortunately in this case they guy ended up being a little more frail than expected.
    Keep in mind I am somewhat of a police apologist willing to admit that they are certainly fallible but they have a tough job and will not always be able to make the most optimal decision every time.

    well, omega wants you to think the move that is named after him (he did not name it after himself, some judo noob omega nutrider did it) is a counter-defense to a standard arm bar. he would accept the fact that you might think it is headbutting a fist, but in all truth, the video above is the true omega kata. all the secrets of omega are hidden in this kata.

    Fucking douchebags; that was like the very first flying armbar I learned over 13 years ago.
    I played around with this today. It seems that being off to the side and having a forearm, rather than just a hand, on the neck helps quite a bit.

    What do you think?

    Yeah, he might go nuts overturning bingo tables if someone doesn't check him now. God, what a tense situation, I hope the officer didn't develop PTSD.

    Unless this old man's name was Karl Gotch or something, give me a break.
