A Standing Armlock That Can be Pulled OffI like the idea of a standing armlock but I have never been able to pull one off in competition. They seem to me to be a great tool to develop.

The time to use it is when someone has a grip on your left lapel near your collarbone and is holding you fairly close, so their arm is bent at the elbow. Take your left hand and slide it up so your wrist is between his wrist and your body, with your fingers pointed up towards the ceiling (palm facing to your right). This gives uke the feeling that you're resisting the grip, but weakly--so it doesn't seem suspicious, but also doesn't seem threatening.
To do the armlock, quickly turn towards your left and simultaneously slip your right arm up between his elbow and ribs, so your right hand should go up past his shoulder level. Quickly join your hand's palm to palm and straighten your arms at the elbow--you've got him in standing ude-garami.
