Omaplata roll to CB signature arm bar

Quick reminder of one of the signature arm bars we have been working in class.

Get to omaplata position (we covered a few, pick one) I prefer the one in the video.

Either force the roll or wait for them to roll to attempt to escape.

You MUST control their elbow. This is key.

Roll with them and end up sat directly on their shoulder. Be aware of the foot position and your posture.

Switch their arm from your left side to your right side.

Post your left hand and quickly turn clockwise to the signature arm bar position.

DO NOT move your legs over their body, just finalise the arm bar from where you are.

Why? That's for the next blog post.
