Standing Armbar

If someone extends their arm violently towards you, as in a push or a choke, you can lock their elbow in a Standing Armbar.

As they extend their arm to you, grab it with both hands, pull it, step back with one foot, and then the other. While you are taking that second step, turn their arm over (elbow side up), and wrap it under your arm. They should end up with their elbow under your armpit.

Once you have that position, pull their arm up, as you drive your ribs into their elbow, almost creating a c-shape with your side. 

When you are the partner, please make sure to tap.
