    Actually, he went on a rant about having sex with your mother. You might want to read it . . . or not.

    I'm just happy there's a chance for me to be Rickson's stepson.

    IDK man. I use 50-50 a lot in gi and have got plenty of ankle locks, knee bars and toe holds (Even some in competition). It may be used to stall for competition strategy but I always fight to get out or get up if I can't hit a leg lock. It is more versatile than you may think.

    Just never heard the term 50/50 before, we used to call North/South, 50/50 back in the day, the position that is now 50/50, we just used to call "The heel hook position"

    There ate tons of attscks from 50/50 And they all work at the gym, but for some reason, mother fuckers don't tap from straight ankle locks and toe holds at the elite bb level, so it's seen as merely stalling or looking for advantages strategy... We all seen horrible pictures of foots that should not be twisted in the way they were...

    I think he means the North/Soutg position was called the 50/50 back in the day.

    Makes sense.

    Very true, but elite BBs are in a league of their own and small % of BJJ. We can't discredit a position simply because a very small % of elite athletes have the ability to stall with it, was really my point.

    Elite level players have been tapped from 50/50, Caio Terra/Otavio Souza/Marcio Andre.
    It's ties up the fight a lot if neither or both guys know what they are doing from there.

    I think the Estima brothers are a counterpoint to the theory of ankle immunity

    It's actually the position for the inverted heel hook. You guys need to update your nomenclature.
