But what good is offense without the proper defensive skills?

Pluto Series

In 1930 Pluto was originally classified as a planet, the ninth from the sun. When they found out is was mostly a floating ice cube, they re-classified Pluto as a "Dwarf Planet". Poor Pluto.

What does that fact have to do with this arm lock? Maybe it's because this armlock is out of this world. Maybe it's because this lock was discovered in 1930. I think it got it's name because your gonna need a large ice pack for your partner's elbow after you throw this move on them.

Although the bicep slicer is illegal at some tournaments and only allowed at higher ranks at others, it's a highly effective move that should be in your grappler's tool box.
