Lockdown in Lockdown (diary entry)

24.11.2electric chair diary0

My second lesselectric chair diary 2on of the night was my teacher consultancy lesson, where we continued our work from the half-guard. This time we moved into the lockdown half-guard position and transitioned into the electric chair position. The lockdown is a technique used for immobilising an opponent’s leg caught in the fighter’s half-guard postion. The concept is to compromise the opponent’s balance and set them up for a sweep or submission off the other side. The electric chair involves trapping the leg on the opposite side from the lockdown. From here we explored a sweep and two submissions to the knee.
