    [​IMG]Hello everyone

    High Percentage Leglocks is finally available on DVD at www.grapplearts.com/High-Percentage-Leglocks.php

    This DVD has two and a half hours of instruction, breaking down and building up the ankle lock, the heel hook and the toehold. It has so much material on it that I had to go to a dual-layer DVD format, so basically it's two DVDs in one.

    It is divided into four sections: below you can see a brief description of each section and view some of the content from the DVD.

    Thank you

    Section 1: Introduction and Principles (Link to Youtube page)

    This section ensures that your your leglocking fundamentals are correct and efficient. Without proper mechanics and positioning you will often find yourself applying leglocks, straining as hard as you can, but unable to force your opponent to tap out. Make sure that never happens again!

    Section 2: Ankle Lock and Heel Hook Entries (Link to Youtube page)

    In this section High Percentage Leglocks covers entries into the ankle lock and heel hook from many different positions. The techniques include methods to apply leglocks from inside your opponent's guard, from your own guard, as counters to sweeps, in transitions between positions, as followups from other submission attempts, from sidemount and from full mount.

    Section 3: Counters and Recounters (Link to Youtube page)

    To master leglocks you need to know leglock counters AND recounters (the counters to the counters). This material is critical, both to prevent your opponent from leglocking you, and also to be able to anticipate and defeat any leglock counters your opponent might use to try to shut down your attack.

    Bonus Section: the Toehold (Link to Youtube page)

    Toeholds are one of the most versatile leglocks, and can be used to submit your opponent quickly from a great number of angles and positions. Find out how to apply toeholds properly, what the common mistakes are, and what the best counters are should an opponent try to apply one on you

    Well, you're not charging $80 for a DVD on novelty submissions. That's a plus already.

    Leglock DVD's seem to be getting a lot more popular lately. Am I the only one noticing that?

    I think that there is a leglock renaissance going on right now, especially in submission grappling and MMA. Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar, Marcelo Garcia vs. Ricco Rodriguez, Oleg Taktarov vs. Mark Kerr, Andrei Arlovski vs. Tim Sylvia (fight #1)....

    In my recent interview with the Fightworks Podcast I discussed this resurgence in some detail:

    Leg locks are part of the game like anything else and must not be ignored but not soley relied on either.
