Mixed Martial Arts Tips : How to Apply the Cross Armlock in Judo: Juji Gatame
Hello, my name is Roger Mamedov, and I’m an
instructor at Camp Undefeated, in New York City. This is how you apply a cross arm lock
in Judo. So in Judo, the common position to start with is in standing position, but we’re
going to look as he’s right on the floor, (so, lie down Taylor, please). So after any
kind of major throw in Judo, I’m always holding onto the sleeve of the arm, my right knee
is going to come right inside, and notice how the foot is planted right in the middle,
I’m still holding on, and I want to pull his arm all the way forward. Now my opposite foot
is going to come right across, notice how I’m still holding onto the arm, now I’m going
to sit right by his hand, and I’m laying tight. The key to this move, is to make sure my knees
are in tight, and his thumb is up. Once his thumb is down, he’s going to be able to escape.
So my hands in tight, knees together, now bring the hand down, and pull the hip up,
and he taps when he feels that. So watch it a little bit quicker. So as he’s down, I’m
pulling the hand, foot in tight, now bring the foot over, in, tight, and finish. This
is Roger Mamedov, and this has been, how to apply a cross arm lock in Judo.
