Ronda Rousey and the arm lock: a powerful love story.

The arm lock has already made a difference to countless fighters. Perhaps the most famous of them was Ronda Rousey. Ronda was an impressive fighter for many reasons. For being the first female MMA fighter to ever conquer the mainstream media. For finishing the majority of her fights in the first round. But the most impressive fact is that Ronda won most fights with a relatively simple technique: the arm lock.

More than a BJJ classic: an end to the fights. Have you ever dreamed about going to a fight knowing the exact move that could give you the victory? It must be an incredible sense of security. Now, look the other way. Have you thought about going to a fight knowing exactly what technique would bring your defeat? This should make you feel not too confident. This is what Ronda’s opponents probably felt many times.

Ronda was a high-level judo competitor. A daughter of the first American woman to become world champion in the sport, Ronda had an unorthodox training at home. She said that sometimes her mother would wake her up in the morning with an arm lock. This may have shown the importance of always being ready. And transferring this confidence to MMA, after a successful career as a Judo medalist in the Olympics, was easy.
