One of the most common submissions from the side mount is the far side Armbar. It is one of those positions were there are many different variations, none being wrong but, the challenge is to find the variation that works best for your body type and BJJ style. I started doing this one from the side mount Armbar when I noticed that my opponents would often try and defend in the same way when I went for this attack. They would block my hip with their forearm and move their body away from by hip escaping. At first I would struggle to complete the armlock because I could not move to the other side of my opponents body ad finish the attack. I would be forced to go with another attack from the side control or switch to another approach such as going for the mount or back control.
