Video - Under Arm Armlock from Mount When Opponent Stalls Out

What's up everyone, just wanted to share a new video that I put up. It's an armbar from the mount when your opponent tries to stall you out by hugging around your body. This is very common when they are up on points in a tournament but ended up getting mounted and also very common in an MMA situation.

Some key points:

- Bring one of your elbows to your knee.
- Step up with the leg that has the elbow to the knee.
- Make sure you keep your arm tight to your opponent's arm
- Push your hand on your opponent's face and push down on it so you can break their grip.
- Use your other hand to block them from trying to defend the armbar. The key is to defend their defense.
- Switch to an s-mount type position.
- Lean your body towards your opponent's legs because this will help you get your leg over his face easier.
- You can either tighten your elbow to your body to get the under arm armlock, or you can switch your grip to a regular armbar (I recommend grabbing your opponent's leg with your arm so it's harder for them to get out.)

Additional Points:

- The s-mount switch should be at most a 2 step process of turning your leg
- Also if end up falling backwards because you felt unbalanced and your opponent tries to sit up on you in and attempt to escape, make sure you push on their face with your hand so you can get them back down.

Hope you enjoy watching,
