Great Article on How the Ankle Lock Works (Grapplearts)



I'm wondering how I missed this article from Grapplearts.com before--
A fantastic article breaking down the ankle lock, and just as importantly, it covers the grips and leg positions to be used.

Like I've said before, I'm a huge fan of Ankle/Leg Locks, so this is a point that I find myself arguing with 'conservative' brazilian jiu jitsu practitioners over.

If the leg of a unskilled grappler is there, wide open, screw positioning, and just go for it. Leg locks are an extremely high-percentage move against people who aren't at a high level of competency on the ground.

So read the article, and practice it. I guarantee you'll like it.*
