    I was wondering if you guys could help me out abit. I was aware of some sort of submission you can attempt if a guy has your back but crosses his legs or feet in front of you. Any help would be great.

    It's really a no brainer, if the guy crosses his legs in front of you just throw one of your legs over the top of his and press down, it doesn't take much at all or you can figure four if need be. The person is probably pretty new that you do it too. I remember crossing my feet once in my first week of trainning and I'll never do that again....

    Be careful with your training partners though.

    Last year, a blue belt at my academy got his ankle broken due to this. He made a little mistake, and paid for it.

    Triangle your legs over theirs and bridge your hips and viola, footlock. There are other footlocks to watch out for if your ankles are not crossed and also if you have the body triangle too
