Twister Roll to Arm Bar, Ninja Style

by Tom Reynolds on May 31, 2011

Eddie Bravo made the twister popular in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Now there are all kinds of guys on the highest levels using it to take the back and submit people. Here we have Cyborg using the twister from quarter guard (It’s a mix between half guard and mount) to a slick arm bar.

Twister Roll to Arm Bar

Some details:

  • Pay close attention to the setup.  You don’t want him grabbing you as you roll so make sure that you are using the cross face.
  • Keep this as a fluid, one step technique.  First go for the back, but if the arm bar is there, take it.
  • His arm has to be far from his body as you enter.
