    The key with any "flying armbar" is kuzushi and timing. People don't seem to think kuzushi is important with flying arm bars, but it's extremely important.

Best we can do is to get a seminar going from Elite (Horn's gym in SLC), or pay Pedro Sauer (6th bb BJJ) to come up North ($$$$).
    I see. I was a bit confused about that. I assumed you were from Logan but now live in Hawaii.

    Judo Contacts shows 4 judo dojos in Utah. 2 in Salt lake City, 1 in Ogden and 1 in Provo. I've never heard of any of them though.

    the only times this has worked for me in training is as a counter to a osoto-gari

    every other time i have tried this move, i get stacked between at pic 3 and 4, this is a desperation move of mine, when i dont feel i can throw someone normally.
