    I'm guessing that armbar frame was copied from an actual picture of someone getting armbarred

    Not necessarily. There are plenty of instances in which it is okay to cross your ankles when armbarring someone. I don't know whether the person that KickCatcher copied the frame from was doing it correctly or not as I've only been taught one or two ways to do a flying armbar, but I get a feeling it was someone pretty fucking good, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I think I've seen Jacare cross his ankles when applying a flying armbar, but I think he did it such that his lower foot was behind the guy's arm/shoulder. I'll check the video I have and report back.

    Besides, beating a McDojo guy using shitty technique would be even funnier than using proper technique, in a way. It would certainly enhance the "big mouth, small technique" image.

    Regardless, good work KC.

    At first, the fact that the nutrider won was something I didn't care for, but then the fact that he's a no stripe white belt made it awesome.

    Just checked. Jacare does it almost exactly the same way that Martial Marshall does. In fact, wouldn't surprise me if that's who KC made the frame from.

    It's not like a McDojo karate guy is going to be able to counter it anyways, ankles crossed or not.

    Source: http://www.fitnessprat.no/showthread.php?t=17011 (found using google and "armbar"). Note how many have their ankles crossed.

    Ok, first person to say "but Rudolf Gracie doesn't cross his legs" is official a nutrider, but not necessarily tough enough to be a martial marshall.

    You do take BJJ right? So you know the fallacy of this statement.
