    Would you arm bar in bar?

    Seriously, we know hoo do armbar, but would you do armbar in a bar?

    People always say this or that sucks, but I think the armbar sucks. You can't ground fight on a crowded metro train surrounded by teenage dirtbags who will join in (especially if you don't look like "one of dem" if you catch my drift).

    Therefore, the armbar is the 2nd cousin of arm wrestling, fun and good for show but thats it.

    There are variations of standing arm-bars that would work just fine in a bar setting.

    I would, and have, many times.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    I will not break your gangly arm. I do not like it, FLR, I won't break it on a buss, in a train, without The Russ. I will not break it anytime. With a choke or in my rhyme. I will not bar it on the mat, in a store, or with a hat. I will not break it FLR, I do not like the armbar.

    Neck cranks. Leave a trail of quadriplegics behind you.

    Armbars? **** that ****, what are you thinking, only dislocating his elbow?

    Snap that asshole's neck like it's 1989.
