    so i am a white belt and today i was rollin with a purple belt of 3 years. i was holding my own most of the time but he had one hell of an armdrag. he was dragging my right arm from bottom butterfly /open guard. the only defense i know is to grab onto his gi pants as soon as i feel both of his hands on my right arm. is there another way to defend that is more efficient because i often find myself trying to pass and not fully aware of where my hand is at (to grab his pants). ideas?

    granby roll when he armdrags you. GO to some wrestling websites to look up a granby roll if you don't know what it is.

    Don't forget to rotate your shoulders.

    when he hits the drag you just roll across the shoulders you can end up on top depending on how your opponent moves.

    it is hard to explain how the granby would work, when your opponent hits the drag, just go with it and roll across the tops of your shoulders, it is much easier to demonstrate than to explain, it is very simple and very effective.

    like he's got ahold of your right arm, you rotate your shoulders with the arm drag and flip over to the right side so you have side control, with your back on his chest.

    Arm drag defense from closed guard : post up your leg on the side of your arm being arm dragged, this will prevent him for taking your back.

    From open guard : use his pulling momentum to jump over his leg. If you know he likes armdragging just bait him with your arm and be prepared.

    Marcelo Garcia's armdrag defense is also an armdrag.

    if its from open guard, i'll try to backstep into a half guard or even side mount. if they are dragging your right arm, backstep with your left leg.
