Drag bodyparts independently?

I made a character in Illustrator and now I cant seem to get the arms to be separate from the body and coat. I tried taking away the coat and putting more sticks and making them independent but it just stays stuck.

Hard to say without seeing the File > Export > Puppet, but agreed - it looks like from here the arms aren't independent or properly separated since the belly seems to be pulled by the arms.

I'd download Wilk from Okay Samurai Puppets - open up the included .puppet file, select the puppet in your project panel, and hit cmd + e (mac) / ctrl + e (pc) to open up the master Illustrator file. Note how his arms are grouped and organized, as separate groups inside the body and each with a + in front. You'll need to do the same and staple them at the shoulder to work properly.

See https://youtu.be/_smLXODTd6U?t=29m7s for how Wilk's arms were set up. If you follow that you should be in good shape.
