Armbar grip break techniques

I am new to jiu jitsu and just learned a few grip breaks. The one break I liked most was hooking your leg and bending the wrist with your leg and forearm, but I don't think I have the right technique. Can someone take a few moments and break it down for me?

Thanks for your time

im fairly new to jui-jitsu also. my gym luckily has a 10th planet coach. and like i said im new so i dont know how good my advice is but it works for me.

if my hand is gripped for the armbar for me its just about done with, however if i feel an armbar coming i clasp my hands together and get out of it 100% of the time.

or if your talking about sinking it in throw on a douchebag.

Learning how to apply it correctly should give you insight on how to defend it, rolling will bring it all together.

P.S. I misread your post, The best way for someone to help your technique is video of what your doing.

From your description, I actually don't know which grip break you're talking about. The douche bag is a good way to break the grip from the armbar. In the same vein, I strongly recommend the "restless leg syndrome" break.

That said, I think that straight up breaking grips from the armbar is the wrong approach to take in competitive jiu-jitsu. At least, it has been for me.

As a smaller guy, I have a hard time sinking a lot of the submissions against bigger opponents when I just try to muscle straight back, or even do a variation of the arm crush. I end up giving a lot of position (though one version of the bicept slicer that I learned from Steve Maxwell has been super-effective in MMA training; unfortunately, it's very illegal in BJJ competitions) when I let my opponent roll up, as in the RLS, ir simply by hooking under the leg. I just find it a very awkward position.

I prefer to secure a tight grip on the arm, control it at some point on the forearm where I feel particularly strong, then slide back and towards my opponent's heads, and that usually will separate the hands.

My little brother has a lot of success kicking his opponent's grip off by placing his foot on the bicept. I find that if I go to that position, I'm probably just going to finish with a triangle, or use the triangle to set up either an armbar or omoplata finish from the back. But that's just a stylistic preference.

Honestly the best most effective way to escape an arm bar I think is to bridge up on your head and walk around your body. I think if I remember correctly a great display of the move is in the Rich Franklin vs Travis Lutter fight.
