video from our recent gasshuku
this was the Pacific Northwest Gasshuku hosted at our dojo at Western Washington University. We had some big names there teaching amazing technique. I love this armbar! sensei here is bert mackey from the Budokan in seattle
(the place where we are at is not where we usually practice, our normal room is far smaller..i wish we could practice here!)
Bert Mackey aka Bullshido's/Judoforum's own Judoratt. Interestingly the first version he shows is what is known at my old club as the 'wrong roll' because its the Neil Adams Juji roll done without the correct Neil Adams figure 4 control.

However, its worth pointing out that I have seen in person and on the interwebs countless examples of the 'wrong roll' being passed off as the Neil Adams Juji roll. If you're doing the Neil Adams Juji roll without securing the figure 4 control before rolling you're doing it wrong and need to read this thread:
However, Bert Makcey isn't showing the Neil Adams juji roll, he's showing a different technique, so don't take this as a criticism of Bert Makcey's teaching, because its not.
