By BJJ.Org Featured Contributor Gene "Aranha" Simco.

These techniques should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.
Practicing the moves incorrectly could result in serious bodily injury or death.

1. In this situation, I have my opponent in the north/south position.
2. I control his arm as shown, grabbing his left arm with my right hand, coming under his arm with my left and grabbing my own wrist.
3. I finish by bringing his arm to a 90 degree angle and twisting to the right as shown to put pressure on his shoulder.
