Baby Jay does ‘how do armbar’:

This is kind of the opposite of how they showed us in Ye Olde Jiu-Jitsu School. Back when I was training the drill was pin the wrist, underhook the other arm, hip out on the target side, then throw the leg across the face to lock it in.

This worked well enough, and I still see people doing it this way in competition, but it does allow the opponent to just yank his arm out before you can lock it in. I got elbowed in the delicates often enough that I quit trying armbars from the guard for a while. It never occurred to me to do it backwards!
