I've found it puts a lot more pressure on the elbow much quicker, but I've been warned by a local BJJ guy that it's harder to hang on to the arm that way, which I can understand.
My ?'s are; is there a name for this tech.? A Diagonal armbar? Did Kerr invent it, or did he get it from another art? What do the grapplers here think of it?
I think he probably learned it from Bas.
Straight punches make you go blind. More damage is done to a criminals nervous system when they are struck. Strikes that make you stronger. All this and more systema douchebaggery:

i dont know if its a pure judo variation, but i first learned that armbar from my judo instructor he called it "armbar variation with his arm trapped in your armpit"
yeah, he isnt one for original names, i would have gone with "bamboo grove in the wind"

It's just something you do if the fucker won't tap and you want to really hurt him.
