Modern Jive: Arm Bar


http://www.modernjive.biz/images/web_gallery/Ritz250709/images/photo24.jpgThis move looked to have two different alternative forms for the man's footwork. First the simple version. The man walks forward and brings the lady's R arm to his L shoulder with his R elbow below her arm (unlike for the Aerial Yoyo) (2 beats). The the man walks across to his R while bringing his R straight above his head as the lady walks clockwise around the man's back (2 beats).

 

Then the man brings his R hand back down to finish (2 beats). I think the lady must have to do a clockwise turn while walking around to make it all work. In the alternative version, the man steps at half-speed, forward on R, across in front with L and now back with normal R-L speed. The step across to the R is essential for the move to work properly without hurting the lady.
