Randy Couture's Arm Throw
I'm clinched up with Glen, fighting for position. I am controlling his left wrist with my right hand, and I have my left hand cuffed around the back of his left arm in the arm-drag position. You want to maintain this control position throughout the technique in order to successfull pull off the throw
Stepping my left leg between Glen's legs, I kick my hips forward and pull his left arm into me using my left hand. This forces Glen off balance, and he steps his right foot to the outside of my left foot in order to regain his balance. Notice how his hips are now to the outside of my hips, creating a pocket of space I can back into. If you don't force your opponent to step outside of your centerline by casting him off balance, the throw won't be possible
Pivoting on my right foot, I rotate my body in a clockwise direction and step my right leg back between Glen's legs. As I back into him I drop my level, position my hips under his hips, get my left biceps flush with his left biceps, and then pulled his left arm over my shoulder. It is important to notice the angle of my hips in relation to Glen's; my hips are not only positioned under his hips, but also to the outside. This angle provides me with the necessary leverage to pull him over the top of my back. The key to success with this technique is executing a fluid entry. As you rotate around, you want to back-step into your opponent, bump your hips into his hips and maintain a tight lock on his arm.
In one fluid motion, I corkscrew my hips in a clockwise direction and pull Glen's left arm over my shoulder. As I pull him over my back I lean forward and drop my weight toward the mat as if I were trying to do a forward roll over my left shoulder.
Glen slams down on the mat. From here I will turn into him and establish top control.
