S-Mount to Armbar on Opposite Side and Prevent ReDefense
In this video you'll learn how to attack your opponent's outside arm with an armbar when he defends his near arm. You'll also learn how to keep him from redefending his other arm. Some points that are mentioned in the video:
- If the arm you are attacking is on top, then there isn't a need to attack his outside arm. Just go for the near arm because he's not defending well.
- If the arm that you are attacking is on the bottom then it'll be harder to finish the near side arm and that's when it's a good option to switch the attack to the other arm.
- Pull his opposite arm elbow in with the forearm of your arm that is closer to his legs/hips.
- Then grab his wrist of his nearside arm with your hand and push it down into his face. This will help to prevent him from switching his grip and defending the other arm your about to attack.
- Keep your butt low and tight when you slide it over his body to the other side.
- The wrist of your arm that isn't controlling his other arm should curl out and then go under the wrist of the outside arm you are now attacking.
- If your position is correct your opponent should have a hard time defending his other arm and the arm you are now attacking should be more exposed.
Thanks for watching,
Thanks for posting this; it's simple but brilliant.
this has been one of my favourite moves for a long time now I wasn't pulling the elbow to prevent them switching the defence. I'll do that from now on.
Awesome video. I'd been trying to get that transition to work for a while now, and I think the details in this video are going to really help.
One extra thing I thought might help, if you stop the vid at 5:02 I just wanted to point out the elbow control of the other arm(the right arm) you see how his left leg is staying tight ,trapping that right elbow from tucking to the hip allowing the left hand to reposition and redefend was an important piece for me.
Remember, these principles work the same when you are in guard position too. As always, fantastic and informative post.
What I like to do is take it across the body. Insteed of falling back, put the knee by his head over their face and go across the body. Will find video.
Very nice! I will have to teach my class that one at some point in the future
Thanks for that one, it's actually one of my go-to moves but I don't normally grab the wrist. I'll give that one a try.
