To finish up the lesson, Rene goes over some basic concepts of finishing an armbar when your shin is behind the neck, rather than over face. First he makes sure to control the wrist and keep the thumb facing up. He squeezes his knees together, and if his opponent sits up, he will follow and roll to maintain the armbar. He also turns his hips a little so they are facing his opponent's hips.

From the mount, Saulo's first move is to drop his body to one side, putting his weight on his knee, opening the lapel and sliding his first grip to the neck. His knee will act as his base and his other leg will keep contact with his opponent's legs. Once his base is comfortable established, he grabs the other lapel and drops his forearm for the choke.

From the S-mount, when Saulo is attacking the arm and throws his leg over the head, it is very important that he stays leaning at an angle and not rising up. Again, by lifting his body, he gives his opponent the space to free his arm. In the case his opponent doesn't push, and leaves his arm trapped, Saulo controls the chicken wing and works for head and arm control.

After Saulo steps over and gets to the mount position on his opponent, he leans to the side at an angle with his hand posting on the mat, and swings his leg to an S position. With his S mount, he can put more pressure on his opponent and also has a better angle to attack the arm. If his opponent is able to defend the first arm, he has the leverage he needs to attack the second arm.
