This week, Carlos shows you how to hit an Ude Garami arm lock from the North/South position. The Ude Garami is a shoulder lock and is similar in mechanics to a Kimura or an Americana. What makes this attack so crafty is that your opponent will generally expect you to go for a Kimura, but you will use their traditional defense against them and hit this sneaky move.
