    Thanks for all the details in the clip. In the video Professor Akins mentioned that it is the opponent’s right hand that has the strength to break his head posture and not his left hand. Could you explain why it is the case that the right in this case has much more leverage than the left? Thanks!

      I’m not quite sure why either, it might have to do with their angle or the shoulder by the head makes it harder to pull down on that side but test it for yourself and feel which arm is stronger

        I wonder if it is because you have to reach further and higher with the left hand than the right. Hence you are able to activate more of the shoulder girdle and latisimus muscle with your right hand/arm.

    Again, a other amazing technique

    Awesome technique Professor, my question is are you monitoring his hip with your arm that’s trapped inside the triangle so he just doesn’t pass the leg over for the fast armlock?
