    the submission that never ever works on me is the arm triangle choke. the defense is so easy that even a baby can do it. rear naked choke is really hard to catch me in too.

    i am, however, susceptible to armbars.

    what about you guys?

    I am the exact opposite of you, the ones that you can easily get out of I have problems with most of the time it is the arm triangle not the RNC, and I can usually get out of armbars 95 % of the time.

    I only really get caught in armbars.

    I myself get armbarred alot too, but because of it I got good at running sideways on the mat a la 3 stooges to get out of it. I don't get caught in side chokes that often either but when I do and try to defend the guy jsut pulls as hard as he can and I usually feel a crack in my neck (previous injury, some jackass twisted a neck crank full power during training not giving me a chance to tap, only yell and lye there for a few minutes while my arm was tingly) and need to tap from the neck pain, not being choked.

    Anything that has to do with being in the guard usually presents a problem for me. I usually have no trouble on my back or mounting someone.

    I'm best at leg locks and getting out of them. Actually if someone tries to leglock me I usually either counter and get them in one, or escape and get sidemount.

    I don't really think I'm weak on anything specifically, but I guess I've been tapped by arm-bars more then anything. I used to stick my head into guillotines a lot, but only a few times I got submitted that way. Still, I hated fighting out of them so I guess in that respect they were my bane.

    Guillotines. By a land slide.

    Getting out of armbars is probably my best.

    I catch people in a lot of guillotines and front chokes (no gi)

    I think my bane is the scarf hold... once i'm in I find it so hard to escape. and then I get subbed by an arm bar of sorts,

    People who have good scarf holds (head-and-arm) use their weight to their advantage and make the bottom person uncomfortable. I hate being under in that position. Hooking your legs or even trying other escapes is like a drawn out, tiring puzzle. I get subbed easily from that position.

    Guilotines & Kimura's I can normally slip out of. Triangles (less these days) and arm bars are my biggest weakness's.

    Very solid defence on triangles, omoplata, and RNC -- even give black belts a lot of trouble on these. Get caught in armbars the most (what else is really left?).

    i dont really get caught when im going with someone within my weight (+/- 20lbs) but there is one guy whos got like 60lbs on me and abuses it well and just waits till i gas. like he doesnt use much technique just out muscles me. oh btw im 190. the one i escape the easiest is the keylock because im so flexible
