    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Can you armbar someone from on top of a closed guard?
    Yes, if the guy sucks.

    Someone in your guard has pretty good access to your groin unless you can control his arms/upper body quickly enough,
    a) controlling the arms and/or upper body is what it's about, to a large degree. It's like saying, the guy can punch you in the face if you don't keep your hands up.

    b) even then - not really. The groin should be pretty well tucked in. And if someone tries to grab or punch it, like Osiris pointed out, it's triangle time.
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    They don't teach you that stuff until you are a three stripe purple.

    I still don't think you can keep an armbar in space. You wrigle around too much, you don't weigh anything, you can manuever in 3 dimesions.

    You can't do an armbar at the bottom of the ocean because you would be crushed. Unless yoo are in a submarine or something.

    You don't need to weigh anything, just hyperextend the elbow.

    In space one can move freely in all directions. Meaning that it wouldn't be a big deal to go through the legs or turn about to parralel the body.

    I feel so vindicated.

    JohhnyS and Yrkoon both said what I was thinking but since I have no real grappling credentials was too timid to say.

    You don't understand what an armbar is, do you? All it is, is hyperextending the elbow. There is more than 1 way to do that.

    All of the armbar escapes I know of require you to push off the ground. You can't just "move" in space, you need to push off of something, too. If you're just floating, you'll stay floating. You can flail about, but seriously, when's the last time flailing about saved you from getting subbed?

    I know I'm being a total troll here, but, Yes I do know what is and how to do an armbar.

    And, there is more than one way to escape it. Especially in space.
