    I originally published this article in Grappling Magazine, but now it's available online at www.grapplearts.com/Ankle-Lock-Breakdown.htm

    It is all about the components of the ankle lock, with some different variations to tap your opponent out quickly, efficiently and safely

    LOL @ "My Jiu-jitsu coach, Professor Marcus Soares, was an ankle lock aficionado when he trained in Brazil, and even earned the nickname

    Damn very nice. Decided to do the variation where you you situp and turn them on their stomache if they roll to the side.. Loved it, I've done similiar moves but I have no idea why it never occured to do this setup with the achilies ankle lock.

    (Also I'm pretty sure he's a brown belt, don't remember who under however.)

    If you have the chance I strongly suggest you visit Kenny Mcclure's ankle lock seminars. I had the pleasure to attend one of these a couple of weeks ago and all I can say is that he really changed the way I think about straight ankle lock.

    He did it pretty differently than what is described in that article. The submission was not caused by pain in the achilles tendon but more like in the ankle joint itself. There was a huge difference.
