Armbar Takedown

The armbar takedown is a joint manipulation in which pressure is applied on a locked elbow, at or above the joint, in the direction the joint will not bend. An armbar has to be locked in quickly, but still requires a slow, steady pressure to gain compliance.

Technique

~ Face the aggressor and grab his right wrist with your right hand as you step forward to the left, which will be to the right side of the aggressor. Set the aggressor off balance by pulling his wrist to your right hip.
~ Pivot on your left foot and step out with your right foot so that you face the same direction as the aggressor. Your right foot must be forward of your left foot.
~ Use your left forearm, perpendicular to the aggressor’s arm to apply downward pressure on the aggressor’s elbow. Maintain control of the aggressor’s wrist by keeping it locked into your hip. Apply downward pressure on the arm by dropping your body weight to take the aggressor to the deck. Place your knee onto your aggressor. See figure 2-46.
