    Black belt details on a deceptively difficult submission to pull off.

    Usually from mount or almost north south when they bridge into me hard. You almost always give up top position though

    The tightest Americana is when you trap their arm with their own lapel in a front chicken wing. They can no longer straighten it, grip fight against your lock, and you have two arms that can create way more torque.
