In the picture you gave, the close arm isn't secured at all, is that normal or just a "do it how you prefer" type thing?
I realize that was probably just a decent picture of the position you found, so I guess what I'm asking is, do you secure the close arm under/between your legs or just leave it loose?
his arm is secured his shoulder is riding his knee, while his grip keeps him close,
i start to secure his arm using my legs and stepping on his wrist for an armbar, or i attack sliding my close knee into his arm pit and kick over with my outside leg attacking an armbar.
