The arm drag is such a wonderful, basic tool for the martial artist. It is a simple way to improve your position from being directly in front of your partner to being at their side or back. Even cooler, it can be applied from standing and the ground. As an added secret bonus, when you really get a grip on the arm drag, the leg drag will drop right into your pocket as well.
In the video above, you’ll see the adult students demonstrating the technique by provoking a push from their partner and then accelerating that push and pulling themselves into a better position. The kids are demonstrating a simpler version, where they simply practice executing the motion against no resistance.
