    I am studying Chi Do Kwan and my instructors have shown us the right way to do that technique (leg over the face). They are real sticklers for the right way to do things and they are very open to ideas and sound techniques from other martial arts styles - acknowledging the roots of our style in Shotokahn and Judo, and the association with Tae Kwon Do as well. So it's not the style that is wrong, it's your particular instructor.

    Are there any other dojos in your surrounding area where you can get good instruction?

    God Bless,

    I've been taught to put my head on top of the opponents leg as part of an escape from an armbar (get the head up, back up to shift more weight through your neck/upper back onto the leg, turn into the opponent, sort of thing).

    Wow, that sounds fantastic. Few things suck more than instructors teaching things that are very wrong. I see a lot of that in the army.

    I take it you are Swedish, where do you live/train?

    For reference:
    Spoiler:

    The only time their head should (really) be on top of your leg is in yoko Juji Gatame (side Armbar). And yes I'm being facetious.


    As "sol90m" said This is fine:

    but not this:

    From what I can gather, in the above picture, uke's head is deliberately free - so he can grimace at the camera. At least I hope so.


    However, from that "leg-under-head-arm-bar" position, I have been caught in a side triangle choke before. My automatic response to the armbar attempt was to to try and sit up through the opening Tori provided, and I got caught.

    Plus, as Pauli said, you see some weird arm bars from time to time. I've ended up in some bizarre positions during a scramble.

    As paul said there are odd armbars you can catch sometimes; but if the instructor is demonstrating an armbar from mount he should do it the normal way.

    I agree with the "trick" advice and also demonstrate why it should be done that way.
