BJJ - Ankle lock series for Modern Grappling, Part 1
What you'll learn
- Ankle-Lock entries
- Ankle lock finishing details
- Takedowns that feed into ankle locks
- Other submissions as "plan b" transitions, from ankle-locks
- Basic familiarity with grappling martial arts
Whether you're interested in grappling sports, an MMA athlete, or just a casual martial artist looking to expand your fight knowledge, this is a unique course to add to your game.
We've been seeing a shift in jiu-jitsu and submission grappling wherein leglocks are coming to play a dominating role in many high-level matches, especially in no-gi formats. But before rushing right to practicing heel hooks - which can be extremely risky for you and your opponent as a first-step - consider learning the foundations of the modern straight ankle lock instead. It is far more wide-ranging in its sport legality, has far less catastrophic injury risk, and the best part: it opens up opportunities for all those more evil heel hooks and other leglocks anyway!
Who this course is for:
- Martial artists, grapplers, MMA athletes

He's been doing all these things for over 20 years, and hopes to do them for at least 20 more. He likes to take the lessons he's learned in one domain (martial arts, for example) and apply them to other domains (visual arts, music, writing, business, etc) and to show others how to do the same. A lifelong student of Western and Eastern philosophy, he's also devoted a considerable time to learning not just how to act (as in, to do the things he enjoys and profits from doing) but how to think.
