Renzo Gracie shared some of his best techniques at the Camp, an event held in Florianópolis featuring a host of BJJ seminars. One of them was a position he used to have trouble with — an armbar against an opponent on all fours. Starting from the front, the attacker would try for the lever and would sometimes get thrown by the opponent, causing serious injuries. To avoid that couter-attack, Renzo developed, alongside his brother Ryan and another teammate, a transition where he ends up by his foe’s side and with the arm trapped even tighter. You can watch it all in this video.
