Default Re: Arm Lock with and without Technical Grappling rules

I'm going to take a look at this later when I can process it better, but seeing a thread about arm locks reminded me of the 2nd to last match between Sheamus and Matt Riddle, Sheamus was forcing Riddle's arm behind him in a key lock and an interesting counter Riddle did to that was hooking his grappled arm under his tights.

This prevented Sheamus from pulling Riddle's hand up and deepening the lock. I'd never seen that kind of counter before, very high-IQ sort of thing to choreograph, made me wonder whose idea it was.

You couldn't do something like this without a waistband to grasp, clear equipment advantage here because Riddle's palm was facing away from his body so he couldn't have just grabbed some fur if he was a pantsless gorilla in a kimura.

I don't have the vaguest idea of where to begin classifying such a counter in TG terms...
