    Reilly Bodycomb would disagree with anyone who says it's just a pain sub. If you can find his demo, he shows pretty clearly how it's actually a true, bone breaking ankle lock.

    I tapped to a straight ankle lock today in competition after my ankle popped, it's pretty swollen right now, so yeah, not a pain move

    The Achillies / Strait ankle lock will break you up bad. If applied the proper way you can totally rip the guy up. Anybody else that says different is seriously misguided.

    I've heard this achilles pain thing but I've never had someone put on a straight ankle lock that even made my achilles feel the least bit sore. It's always the tendons that run up the front of the ankle. And how the fuck do you break a bone with this technique unless you're actually just doing a shitty calf crusher or the guy has severely brittle bones?

    I said sorry & paid for his doctors bill. He should have made contact on me with the tap.
    I always make it a point to touch my opponent & verbally tap now.

    They were not doing it properly then, or were not applying maximum leverage.
    When you do it the right way something will pop.

    It's not a pain submission, at first glance when I saw it on shows I was thinking "it just pinches the achilles". I learned it in class yesterday and my instructor was talking about how a buddy of his tore his ligaments...

    As with every other joint lock, you don't break the bones witht he achilles lock. You tear the tendons and ligaments so that the bone dislocates from its joint.

    When I first learned the straight ankle lock in some kind of pre BJJ kenpo, it was done with the blade of the forearm across the back of the calf. It was meant to hurt but no one thought they could do any damage with it, and they mostly couldn't.

    That was a long time ago. I think people have gotten a lot better at the lock but some of the things people used to say about it have kinda hung on.

    I'm pretty sure Rogan said on a recent ufc that calf slicers are only a pain tech. The general level of knowledge on lower body attacks is still lacking in a lot of bjj guys.

    There are some people that seem to have really bendy feet and seem to be immune to ankle locks and toe holds tho, in my experience
