Throughout my grappling voyage, I've been a victim of hundreds of armbars, and the feeling of being pushed, pulled or popped is something you may never get used to. You just learn to concede and/or persevere. Thankfully, since my early years in BJJ, I've learned just about all the different armbar variations out there and now readily attack elbows with a voracious hunger that may even surpass that of Kirstie Alley. And, if you're helpless and feeble like I once was, you probably need some tips on how to escape the dreaded armbar.
Take a look at this video with Seth Shamp, from Triangle Jiu Jitsu, Durham, NC. He shows us possibly the most detailed escape video we've ever seen.
