My new Leg Lock course is now live! 4 weeks of drilling on some of the most important movements and theories in the modern Brazilian Jiu Jitsu game. Check it out here:
This is a lock I learned a LONG time ago and I’ve been shown some great variations of it over the years from some awesome martial artists such as Adlai Cleveland, Scott Elliot, and even the brilliant John Danaher included it on his leg lock set.
Currently, this is my finishing mechanic and it’s probably the leg lock I get the most often in training. I’m using it from both the 50/50 position and the Honey Hole. Well, we call it the Honey Hole at 10th Planet Decatur. Everyone seems to have a different name for it. Saddle. 411. Cross Ashi. Inside Senkaku. Call it what you want. I call it the honey hole.
As far as damage to the opponent goes, the inside heel hook is gonna be a much more devastating lock. But if you need a tap and maybe a break on the foot, this variation of the Straight Ankle Lock is gonna be there for you.
Let me know in the comments if this was helpful to you or if you have other techniques you wanna see!
I’m looking forward to putting out more content like this for you guys as we continue to build this channel into something really resourceful and beneficial to the BJJ community!
