It’s safe to say that Jocko Willink is one of those people who are most recognized in the BJJ community; his demeanor, advice, and overall love for the Gentle Art have gotten many interested in training. With that said, the same is true for Dean Lister – who is one of the athletes most “guilty” for making Leg Locks as popular as they are today.
In their newest video, Jocko and Dean shared some fantastic details for what might be your favorite submissions… Read on!
SUBMISSION DETAILS BY JOCKO WILLINK & DEAN LISTER
Are you a fan of Kneebars? If so, the next time you’re close to finishing one, don’t just grab the opponent’s ankle/calf muscle. Instead, Dean Lister advises you to grab a hold of their toes and establish a Rear Naked Choke grip. Then, twist a bit into the side your opponent is on and you’ll get the tap.
If you’re someone who prefers Heel Hooks, that’s awesome too! Here’s a good tip: make sure that the opponent’s heel falls into the upper part of your wrist. Don’t place it on your elbow, but use your wrist instead.
Also, make sure that you don’t lock your feet when taking someone’s back… Unless you want to get submitted with a Leg Lock. And definitely go for the “Schoolboy Takedown” when your opponent has a strong base.
