A Technique from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

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.

In this situation I am controlling my opponent in the knee on stomach position.
I begin my attack by lowering my base and securing my opponent's left arm in place with my right arm.
I then slide the blade of my right forearm just above my opponent's left elbow. I make sure to keep my opponent's upper forearm pressed against my right shoulder. I then step my left leg over my opponent's head and squeeze my knees together.
To complete the lock I rock back and simply pull down on the back my opponent's tricep, just above the elbow.
