    I just kicked one of my classmates in the lip last thursday while going for one. Its a pretty rare thing, and I appologized profusely. I was thinking about how that would be a great setup for any armbar in mma, similar to the way Ivan Salivary kicked Joseph Riggs as he pulled him into the triangle from open guard at the recent UFC.

    Being kicked or elbowed when someone goes for an armbar is just part of the game.

    I saw someone get a black eye from a flying armbar attempt.
    Nobody wanted to roll with the guy who did it for a week.

    yeh armbars are the worst especially that one where you start from the butterfly guard and you finish with your back in the air

    you can get really hurt doing this move
