TECHNIQUE

Oliver Taza shares what might be the best, most powerful way to leglock someone. In this application start by controlling your opponent using the ‘saddle’ position, also known as inside sangaku, the 411, the honey hole, etc. Then you finish him using the reverse heel hook which twists the foot to the outside where it has much less give compared to the conventional (and already deadly) standard heel hook which twists the foot to the inside. Even if you hate leglocks you should still learn this stuff so as to be able to recognize when you’re caught in a dangerous position.
