Firas Zahabi Teaches You How To Safely Learn The Flying Armbar.
Firas teaches two variations of the flying armbar. The first involves jumping to a closed guard like position with one shin under your opponents armpit. Then your other leg goes up over your training partners head to complete the armbar. The second version mimics an open guard armbar. In this version you’re jumping to place your shin across your opponents belly. Which makes it a little more dangerous to learn, as your training partner can’t support your leg. However once learned it has the benefit of using less explosive energy as you don’t have to jump as high to pull off this variation of the flying armbar.
