    Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.

    If someone is not noticing/respecting your tap, then--provided that they haven't actually snapped your limb off--you will need to talk to them after you are done. If they are unable or unwilling to be more careful with you, then do not roll with them.

    Auto- It really depends on what type of armbar you are talking about.

    I've thought of biting a chunk out of someone's leg if they put it over your face, but it's not going to happen. If it's locked, roll towards them for all you're worth to get your arm off the fulcrum. If you have godly rotator cuffs you can try twisting onto the side of your elbow, but if it's locked the only thing that can really save you is bicep and pectoral strength.

    I was messing around and arm barred my wife in play. She bit the **** out of my calf. Yes I had it placed wrong but she was still proud of herself. Fucking midgets (5'3") are hard to do it correctly on.

    Shuma, If the elbow is locked I think you're past the point of defending with bicep strength (my only viable defense at this point by the way).

    I'm unclear as to whether it's a matter of having sufficient strength or if it's physiologically impossible to exert force from the elbow once it's completely straight. Now that I think of it, getting your arm off the fulcrum as a last-ditch effort would be shoulder strength.

    I'm not being sarcastic, but at that point you're kinda fucked. Hope you can function with a snapped elbow, I guess.

    It seems most jujistu schools dont have agood anwser to this one. (Research the stuff on chin na counter joint locking techniques.) I know a few but I'm not going to say.
