ALL ABOUT ARMBARS! This week we’ll be discussing the intricacies of the armbar, specifically from the Guard position. We’ll begin by learning the offensive side of the Submission, which explores how to break our opponent’s posture and isolate their arm prior to seeking the tap. We’ll also add in the Flower Sweep to have as a counter if they defend!
On Wednesday, we switch sides and learn how to defend and escape the Armbar. By discussing the offensive side of this technique first, we’re able to use that knowledge to reverse engineer the position and defeat it.
We’ll also be returning to our Competition Class format on Wednesday night at 7:30pm, kicking things off with “Crazy Eights”! See you on the mat!
