Ankle Locks (diary entry)

Reaching the halfway mark of my client’s latest 10 hour Submission Grappling course, we went back through the three guard passes from combat base, the de la riva/hook guard and I introduced the straight ankle lock.

We began with a callisthenic warm-up focusing on movement that have direct relevance to guard passing and promote hip mobility. Then we ran through the use of the combat base to get the double under-hooks, stack and pass under the guard, to crush and pass through the guard and to pass around a long guard. This led us onto the de la riva where we reviewed a simple sweep. From the sweep we looked at the ankle lock.
