Everyone has an armbar defense. Some are better than others. This one, is one of the best. Instead of fighting the armbar by locking a hand into your own bicep and hoping to be able to run away, this one allows you to actively bait opponents into thinking they will easily submit you while you are already escaping.
It’s simple movement and easy application is what makes it beautiful. Thanks to Big Guy BJJ for giving us this defense. We think it could keep Bethe Correia from being arm barred in her upcoming fight with Ronda Rousey.
Be sure to try this one before you knock it for its simplicity.
