Re: Arm locks... really???????

My resolve this year was to get lethal with chokes from any position. I'm getting there. Learned more in the last six months than I ever thought. I'm with Don on pain. If you get the angles and hand/arm position correct, then no pain but they are going out fast. I recently did a seminar, most guys really need to be shown how to do them properly. Once u get it, you can lay them on pretty easily ad effective.

The challenge is getting control of your opponent to get to the right position to choke. That is not the issue of the choke though as u need this for any technique.

Re: Arm locks... really???????

The problem with pain is that there are some people just immune to it or worse - that seem to enjoy it.

And at the risk of channelling Steven S. stopping a choke is possible (waves to Gene). Not so foolish to say that once a choke is firmly in place I can flex my neck muscles and the like but just that getting a choke firmly in place can be messed up in so many ways.

Actually, a much simpler way to look at this is - it's hand holding. It's helping. It's offering assistance. It's protecting. It's nothing more than that.
