Default Does anyone have any good videos of "Bent arm" technique?

I've read all of the articles and heard it described, but I just can't seem to actually envision it. Can anyone point me in the direction of some videos of it?

I was under the impression he meant bent arm reachback, and both avery and beato have straight arm reachback (Unless there is something I am not understanding?)

Triflusal is right...I'm question bent arm reachback or the "bent arm technique" as we refer to it on here.

Just imagine their arms slightly bent at full reach back. The rest of the throw is the same.

The terminology is a bit fuzzy. Bent arm/elbow to me means the hit, unless reachback is specifically mentioned because the hit is the same regardless of the reachback.

In the case of reachback, Moser and Pitts are bent arm reachback in the third vid.
