i always look for the armbar as soon as i take the back. everyone expects the choke so its usually easier to secure the armbar IMO

I like letting my opponent get to the turtle so I can hit the clock choke. But then, this is the first time I've seen instruction for an armbar from the back.
We all need some place we can go away to, some place where we can be who we should have been instead of who we are.

this is a different way of getting an armbar from the back than i have seen before.

i personally like the spider web position over taking the back any day

Different strokes for different folks I guess. A guy I was talking to at work the other day was flabbergasted when I told him that I preferred side control to mount.

I suck at staying mounted. For some reason I can never keep my balance up there and my feet end up sticking to the mat when they try to move. On the other hand one of my favorite sweeps is the omoplata one where you end up mounted with one of their arms trapped to move to either an arm bar or a triangle from the top.

Side control is less of a head ache but doesn't look as cool ;)

I am with you guys there. In prep for competitions though i always take mount then hop off back to side control, gotta get the points lol. I do like the armbar from mount though, but side has a million different things you could work.

And if leg locks are allowed I actually prefer being in half guard lmao. There are a ton of options from there, and his legs and ankles are set up perfect for you.
