Mounted Armbar With Triangle Option
Matt Darcy • 4m 49s
From side control it is important to keep the near side arm’s elbow off the mat and on your hip. Matt Darcy demonstrates how to intercept the far side arm to be able to clear the way when kicking over. For the armbar post near your opponents legs, clamp your knees together to secure the arm. For the triangle you will swing the leg all the way around the opponents head and grab your shin before rolling so that its already in deep.
