In this video I show a relationship between the legs that I’ve found a lot of use in. From time to time I like to use the Rolling Back Attack or the Twister Roll set up. This is similar in concept but totally different in execution.
I’ve really been enjoying laying on the legs specifically. This video doesnt do the position justice in my opinion because the majority of my weight is put onto the legs in very controlling manner. If your opponent/partner is waiting for the front roll to come they will be surprised when you slowly and methodically move your hips away with that pant control. My experience with this move has been pretty fantastic.
With that being said, when I attempted to show this to some of my students some of them got it immediately, while others really struggled with the relationship of the legs.
The power is in the spacing of the leg. This means that you can make the space by moving your hips back rather than kicking them away with the leg. If your partner/opponent is feeling to tight to your hips and there is no pocket for them to fall then you need to focus on moving your hips away rather than kicking with the leg (although there will still be tension on the leg).
Lastly, the hooking and binding feature on the leg only becomes available when they are partially broken down. This means that you will have to use that pant grip to help pull them partially over. You should feel your foot lock into place extremely securely while only using one leg. This gives you an extra leg to help continue to break them down. When done correctly it has some aspects that feel very much like the Lock Down position with the legs but you’ll only be using the one leg.
