When thinking about armbars, a lot of jiu-jitsu practitioners (especially those newer to the sport) tend to focus on the arm closest to them. However, the far arm is also a perfectly valid target, and here to prove it is one of BJJ’s best coaches and competitors.
In this video, Lachlan Giles demonstrates how to hit a far-side armbar from side control. Given that Giles already has a few very successful instructionals on the market, it’s no surprise that this ADCC veteran (who will also be competing at this year’s championship) offers all the details you need to perfect this useful submission. Take a look!
