Instructions for the Hapkido "Under The Arm" Armbar

This page examines the Hapkido technique known as the "Under The Arm" armbar (or "Wing Lock"). In this self-defense technique, students use a joint lock known as an armbar (or elbow lock).

During training, students will twist their opponent's arm and trap the opponent's elbow under their arm (in the arm pit). The student will then use their weight to press down on their opponent's elbow.

For other joint locks, please visit Hapkido Joint Locks or the main Joint Locks section.
