GJ "Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world."

Or if Archimedes had been a BJJer "Give me a grip and a joint on which to twist and I will submit anyone". We did a lot of wrist/elbow/arm throws. These throws take advantage of leverage (and proper body) mechanics to throw a person, but without directly interacting with the hips or legs (i.e. the anatomy that keeps one vertical).

Continued working on a new ground flow from the guard

Use the arm drag to place partner's arm across body with wrist in arm pit.
Set-up arm bar, placing wrist bone proximal to elbow for leverage.
Can't pivot?
OK trap crossed arm with body, hook under leg and with trapping side hand and grab lat with other hand go to (dead) flower sweep.
Defends sweep by basing across with free hand
Go right back to arm bar
Grabs head and stacks
Is cool, go to "bench press" (or "leg press assist") arm bar and push on knees to extended, alternatively walk out on shoulders and lock free hand (most likely hooked around your neck if he's stacking) with scoop armbar
Any other options?
Sure as this is stolen from Marcello Garcia, use the arm drag to take the back.
But what if they defend the arm drag?
Well that's fine, too. They'll probably jerk the arm back and away, if you see this reaction, fake the arm drag and go right to hip bump (open the guard, catch the tricep and make a tripod with the other hand).
OK so I "sorta" got the arm drag but they pulled the hand out, now what?
Depending on the clearance of that arm, I'd either attack with triangle or oma plata, but both these have to be loaded and then followed by hip repositioning.
But its all dependent on the arm drag
Not really very similar position is available if you pop the elbow in and hook your knee over their shoulder, in a quasi-triangel position.
But but what if...
Geez settle down, its just a flow pattern to work some different moves with

Lastly we worked some movement drills, essentially using the triangular foot work so prevalent in kali, capoeira, tai chi and pretty much every other combat art known to man (or woman). Just imagine the mighty samurai coasting from foot to foot...
