Head in Arm Control
This technique works with either gi or no-gi, and is suitable for beginner level practitioners. Broadly, this technique is in the positions category of moves. Specifically, it is a side controls move. You will start in in the side control position.
Setup: The Initial Situation
This is a very common position and is very strong. It is different from the classic side control in that you are hugging high around his neck and armpit rather than grasping his legs. This guard puts lots of weight on his upper chest and jaw. In this example, you are on his right side.
Your left arm is under his head
Your right arm is across his upper chest and under his left armpit and shoulder
Your hands are clasped in Gable Grip underneath his left shoulder
Knees are close to him, with the left knee at his right ear and your left knee pressing into his right hip.
