A lot of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners think that the Lockdown is just about, well, locking your opponent’s leg – but it’s not that simple. Coach Magnus Hansson, from 10th Planet Stockholm, points out that the Lockdown has got a lot more to it than just a leg connection, and that it actually contains four different elements to its successful application:
1) Yes, of course – the leg connection has to be established. But…
2) … upper body control has to be there as well, and is even more important.
3) Your underhook game when you have your Lockdown secured will reap numerous benefits, and so will…
4) … your overhook game.
Those are four very important elements of the Lockdown, and there’s much more to them than you might think there is.
