Iron grip armbar defenses can be dismantled a variety of ways, but the tarikoplata (aka the “yettanotherplata”) will make your opponent regret they even defended to begin with.
Black belt Andris Brunovskis, a protege of Andre Galvao and Atos Jiu Jitsu standout, gets props for the super clear and concise technique breakdown in this submission guide. You’re starting from a C-grip interlocked within your partner’s armbar defense. Set up the plata by grabbing your own leg, then bringing your knee over their wrist. You’ll use a basing hand and one foot to post up and shift your weight, tuck your heel under your butt tightly for stability, turn, and crank their joints until the sweet tap of victory comes.
