    Honestly, that as a pretty good armbar. Especially coming from not training with the gi. It's a totally different game when people have 1,000 different places to hold on.

    Good job man

    Nice submission, your posture needs a little work.

    The blue gi is a perfect example of why x-guard, DLR and the rest of the fancy shit should be kept away from white belts until they know how to use closed guard.

    BTW nice armbar.
