I haven’t been doing as good a job of recording Magic Monday classes. I know that those who attend enjoy being able to go over the techniques again by viewing my videos. Work as been demanding and I’ve missed the last few.
Here I am in my black Vulkan Pro Light with Chris. I find that when I get North South I often don’t know anything to do other then look for a better position. This arm bar that Chris shows on me is a excellent choice for a submission from North South.
It looks a lot easier then it is at first. The sitting back into the arm bar doesn’t feel natural in my opinion with your leg bent. As noted, rather loudly, in the video you have to get the "squeeze" with the legs to help tighten it. My problem was I kept letting the arm out from under my arm. I tried to lay back and do a more traditional looking arm bar. But as usual with repetition it came more naturally and started working for me. I’ve been getting North South more often. I hope to use this the next time I do.
