    Hey Henry,

    I was attempting this technique the other day but found I unable to keep tight control of my opponent’s right arm, which allowed him to pull his elbow back and avoid the armbar.

    Is there a particular way of holding the arm that helps prevent? Or should the focus be on keeping the hips higher as the control of the arm?

      There’s timing involved of course but by keeping your hips high, climbing the legs up and biting hard with the leg to keep their posture broken, it should help.
