Xande's opponent smashes his shield, and this time rather than keeping his base low, he is staying on his feet and driving his weight into Xande. In this case, Xande will look for the armbar rather than the back take. Using his foot on the hip for leverage, Xande changes his angle and drags the arm across as he did before. Now his other leg bites down on the back, as it did when previously when he closed the guard. But this time, instead of closing the guard, he throws his leg over the head to finish the armbar.
