Footlock Defense - Gracie Jiu Jitsu Academy


I quip every once in a while in this blog about "leg locks are awesome, don't forget about them!"

But today, I post about how to get out of the basic footlock, aka, the Achilles lock.

Video from the Gracie Academy in Torrance, with Ryron and Rener Gracie explaining what exactly is required to get out of a footlock.



Most important bits?
Push outside foot off first
Hug attacking leg and bridge/hop over outside foot
Pull your outside leg out and around to place on opponent's hip
Push/Pull legs to escape

Like I've said before... BE CAREFUL WHEN PRACTICING LEG LOCKS OF ANY KIND.
