    Don't put your foot in his hip unless you have control of at least one of his arms. Done, no more Estima locks. Alternatively, you can play more of a half butterfly than RLDR, which I prefer anyway (of course, my game is SLX based, if you're looking to play mostly DLR then the RDLR is more important to have).

    This is my rule of thumb as well. If I can't control the nearside arm I place my outside leg as a reinforcing hook underneath my RDLR hook until I can get control of an arm again or switch to another guard. If you are in RDLR and get put in an estima lock you can usually invert to your shoulders and get your heel free
