Rather than let go of your grip on your opponent's arm, we use this opportunity to transition to a side control with your opponent's arm folded across and pinned to their chest. We have many options to finish from the folded side control position including a transition to the mount, a straight arm lock from the folded side control, or transition back to the keylock to attack the kimura, straight armlock, and americana.
