5 Step Armbar
Here is a nice armbar set up from the closed guard. As you grapple more experienced grapplers - you will need more ways to vary your attacks. Here is a video of the technique, with the step by step below:
I start with Nate in my closed guard
I bring my guard up high, under both of Nate;s armpits
For the first part of step 2, I throw my left leg over Nate's right shoulder. I try to get the back of my knee tight around his shoulder
To finish step 2, I throw my right foot over my left foot. I then squeeze my knees together as I pull my heels down.
I control both of Nate's wrist with my right hand, as I shove Nate's head towards the trapped shoulder.
I quickly throw my left leg over Nate's head and pull my heel downward and spin my upper body to my right. I often tell my students that this motion is similar to the way a skateborder pushes off the ground to get motion.
For the final step, I squeeze my knees together, pull my left heel down as I arch my hips upward and pull down on the wrist
