Kid, I tried the pushing arm up and ducking move with my coach, and could not pull it off. I didn't have the leverage to lift his arm up. How do you do it?

It can be a bit tricky at times but it's certainly doable. You just have to make sure to do it before they have any kind of grip on you.

I pull them to their left as I turn to my right. Sometimes this makes them have to take a big step at that point its easy to pop up the opposite elbow and duck under.
That's a great tip, I'll try it, thanks.

You can also press inwards (towards your centerline) on their elbow, to break the "structure" of the hold and how your partner/opponent are using it to brace you in place to hold your head.
