    His arm should be on your chest throughout the armbar. If you're beginning the armbar with his arm off your chest and then pulling it to your chest, then you're doing it wrong. How much experience does your groundfighting instructor have? Compensating for flexibility by changing the angle of a lock should be automatic for a BJJ brown, maybe even a purple.

    For example, during an armbar, if your opponent has hyperextendable arms, turn your body slightly so that you're more on one hip and you're facing his head. This gives you a lot more latitude to work the armbar because you're arching your back along the ground, instead of into the ground.
