All About The Angles… Super Tight Toe Hold From The 50/50.

Super Tight Toe Hold From The 50/50.

One of the first BJJ techniques I learned was the spinning arm bar from the mount when someone pushes on your chest. However, despite practising it a lot, I’ve NEVER been able to pull that arm bar off in training. I found my opponents had too much space and could escape, or I’d lose my […]
