My question is, how do you apply the perfect armbar, like the ones u see sakuraba, and nogueria do? where do the fighters bend the arm at? if anyone has info, or some good sites please post. thanks

You have to make sure you have your legs tight against his leg, make sure to arch your back up, and you can add your forearm underneath while turning upwrad usin your bone while locking the arm with one hand.

The best one I saw was where a guy put his cup/groin DIRECTLY under the point of the elbow, and make sure youre legs are far up the arm, almost in the armpit area to make SURE its sunk in deep! Too low on the arm & they can slip out.

I would never put it across my groin. That ****ing hurts put it to the side of you thigh. Sometimes if you have thier arms across your groin they will bend the arm and drive the elbow down and that ****ing hurts.

knees squeezing together, pinning their head is essential unless you want them to esacpe into your guard, their thumb point up

practice doesn't make perfect, only perfect practice makes perfect
