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.

I am mounted on my opponent and he has extended his left arm.
I place my head on the outside of the arm and put one hand behind his head and the other behind the extended arm.
I then drop my head down and trap my opponent's arm. My left arm grabs my bicep and I tightly squeeze forcing him to submit.
