Let’s say someone walks up from behind you, they reach around and grab your neck. Most likely what they are trying to do is pull you backward and drag you. If you’re able to respond, you’re going to throw them overhead.
First, make sure your fingers are deep in the forearm and the bicep.
Secondly, you’ll drop your weight slightly.
Thirdly, you’re going to engage your hips, bow forward and throw your opponent overhead.
Now you’ll want to go for the armbar so you’ll put your knee on his ribs and then step over opponent’s head.
Now your opponent wants to counter this move. He’s going to grab your leg and do a backward roll over his right shoulder.
As he comes up he’s going to put his knee on your ribs. Switch the arm, make sure to control the wrist. Step over the head and fall back for the armbar.
So you are basically doing the same armbar that your opponent initially was trying to do to you just with the backward roll.
