Armlock (腕固め, Udegatame) is a fighting move that Baki Hanma quite often used against his opponents.


At first, the user grabs the opponent's arm, and then he slams him into the ground. The fighter puts his right leg on the opponent's neck, and he keeps a balance with the other leg. With this move, the user can easly break his opponent's arm.

Baki Hanma used this technique during a battle with Koushou Shinogi for the first time. Then he used this move against Mount Toba, but he failed. Baki also made an improved and stronger version of this move. That improved version is called King Tiger.

In the first season of the anime, the Armlock technique was also used by Atsushi Suedou during his quick match against Kiyosumi Katou, but that scene doesn't appear in the manga. Kaiou Jaku used this move in his fight with Kaiou Chin by dislocating his shoulder. Izou Motobe has also used this technique in his fights against Yuujirou Hanma, Kaiou Retsu and Jack Hanma, for example.
