I have to say I stumbled onto this. The arm bar, and esp on guys, does it really work. I had never known that something like that existed or was possible! I am not into bjj or martial arts but, and I know this is not really the best approach, but I was shown and learnt the arm bar move by a girl friend before after my concerns of being assaulted or raped and being in on my back situation. Would really freak me out to such an extent that I said I wanted to learn, and some moves, anything that may be of help. She taught me the arm bar. I can do the arm bar but it relies on a lot of compliance from her / my training partner. But would it really work on say a much bigger, although maybe not significantly, guy? She kindly showed me in steps and allowed for me to gradually learn and get to that end point with the arm in placed correctly (thumb facing up) and slowly (or fast as you apply if in that situation) arching my pelvis and hips. If locked in, I sometimes feel that a stronger guy could still bust out of it? My friend says no way, if technique is good. Any words and advice appreciated, I just want to follow up more and be encouraged. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work! Cheers, K
