I was wondering why the armbar from the top is never really mentioned as a "bread and butter" hold in catch. Everyone talks about the double-wristlock, toe-holds, cranks and the TWL, but in my experience, the armbar from the mount or side-control is just as easy to get and often times more so. But beyond that, there are also many pics of old-style catch guys ending up in the juji-gatame position (or spiderweb as it's called now). I think this move needs to be added to the lexicon of essential and basic catch hooks.
When you roll, how many of you use the straight armbar regularly?
