Are you trying to Arm Lock his attacking arm? If so, he should still get the chance to Parry your Arm Lock with his Knife.

Are you trying to Arm Lock his non-attacking arm? I'm not sure you can do that.

It doesn't specifically say that you MUST capture the attacking arm, but I'm sure that was Peter's intent.
I think I read somewhere recently that you can lock any arm, not necessarily the one that was attacking you, but don't take my word for it.

you, are still Wild Swings.
If the grappler is in the opposite-side hex, it's a Wild Swing, plus -4 for the grapple. Note that turning while grappled is problematic.

Agreed, it's the best possible outcome.
