If fighting techniques had a Hollywood, then let me tell you that The Flying Armbar would definitely be an A-lister. It’s a variation of the judo move juji-gatame which, despite its fancy name is simply an arm lock where you secure an opponents wrist and arm by squeezing it through your thighs and pulling. Take the simple effectiveness of such move and then force-feed it dynamite, and that is what the flying armbar is like. By tightly holding the opponent’s neck and arm, the attacker puts one of his or their shins against the opponents midsection, and leans up on the opponent; at the same time, the attacker swings the leg on the same side as the opponent’s collar tie over the opponents head. Game over.
This is the type of move that either makes or breaks a fight. Very tricky to pull off, attempting it could leave you vulnerable from several angles. Successfully pulling it off means your opponent has two options: submit immediately or get their arm broken and then submit. Size and strength can affect how easy the move is pull off, they mean little once the move is accomplished.
