Figure Four Arm Lock

Besides the Kimura, my most common finish is the Figure Four Arm Lock. It is simple yet devastating, and I find that the elbow locks out much easier than a regular arm bar, due to the fact that you have much a better brace of the elbow than you do with the classic arm bar.

It also flows naturally from either the Americana or Kimura when people try to escape. Sometimes I just force the position if I’m having a hard time with a Kimura. Once you have it locked out, there isn’t anything the person on bottom can really do except tap.

To become the best, we must continuously test ourselves. We measure our performance, evaluate our faults, accept criticism and then work on improving ourselves before starting all over again.

I live by this principle, and I need your help! I wish to be the best instructor I can be, but I need feedback from you to know if I am doing a good job.
