Ronda Rousey will defend her UFC title at UFC 175, and just about anyone who does any form of submission grappling has to admire her ability to attack the armbar. She refined her armbar in Olympic Judo competition, and one of the most popular attacks is the juji gatame, the rolling armbar.
So for today's Advanced Class, we welcome US Olympic Judo Coach Jimmy Pedro, who competed in four separate Olympics, and Travis Stevens, a two-time Olympian and dual black belt in Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. These two highly decorated Judoka teach an escape to the rolling armbar attack.
This video was posted earlier this year on Stephen Kesting's YouTube channel, which is pretty much a must-subscribe to anyone who likes technique videos. His website, GrappleArts.com, is also a pretty fantastic resource, especially for those starting out their BJJ journeys. Also give Travis Stevens a follow on Twitter, his handle is @JudoSilencer.
