    In this segment of the Armlock series we will be looking at different methods of applying pressure to finish the Americana. Remember, it's not about burning yourself out using strength, but using slight adjustments in your grip techniques to twist, lift and drag your opponent into submission.

    When attempting the cross body Americana, sometimes you will encounter an opponent who knows to avoid this submission by straightening their arm...that's cool, thanks for the Armbar buddy.

    We have looked at the basic set ups for the Americana and Crunch Armbar, now let's look at a more advanced set up. Using the head to block the arm, we can create the outside arm trap during the pass or when your opponent is trying to escape. This is a great transitional set up!
