Tag Archives: armbar

An armbar or arm lock traps an opponent's elbow between the fighter's legs in a cross-body position with the corresponding wrist secured by the fighter's hands. It becomes a submission hold when the fighter thrusts his hips upward against the immobilized elbow joint. Two other names for the armbar are the "cross-body armbar" because of the cross-body position and a "straight armbar" because of the positioning of the opponent's arm in the lock.
