One of the true submission masters in MMA is Masakazu Imanari, a 35-year old Japanese star with fifteen tap-outs to his credit including many stemming from one of his infamous Heel Hooks. However, Imanari has a number of Armbars in his arsenal as well, and, as he’ll show in this MMATraining Technique of the Day, the hold doesn’t always have to come from the standard position fans might generally associate with it.

Imanari also demonstrates a brilliant Arm Drag from the bottom resulting in a Shoulder Lock position, yet another example of exactly how dangerous the 24-9-2 grappler truly is.
