Firas Zahabi: Leglocks Are The Best Anti wrestling Technique Because They Defuse Sprawling

 

Firas Zahabi is an outstanding mind for bjj and bjj in mma. Zahabi recently released a video where he narrates a roll against a pedigreed wrestler. In the video he is grappling Johnny Yates – who comes from a long line of wrestling Olympians.

Wrestling background makes for some very tough opponents. To a skilled grappler there are several worthy options namely:

1 They give up their backs easy

 2 They hate being on their backs

3 They will scramble a lot

4 Their strength and conditioning is very good

5. Go for footlocks

and lastly…

6. They will take you down.

This video is meant to highlight some of the interesting exchanges that occur between these two different grappling arts.

As the headline says Zahabi opted to go for several leglocking strategies against the young wrestler because sprawling straightens the leg therefor making it easier to leglock and he doesn’t mean just heel hook.

 

 

In his newest release from BJJ Fanatics “How to Pass Guards Quickly and Easily” , he shows his favorite methods to pass the trickiest guards out there by using his leg lock prowess and set ups to make the guard pass more likely.
