    Face down is by far the best way to finish that hold. Drastically harder to escape and much more pressure. Guys gotta mind their legs, and tap before it's too late!

    Most people didnt do it correctly. Most people are 'cranking' it from their back, wich is wrong 'cause you dont have enough 'travel' do finich it.

    You have as munch pressure as belly down if you do it sideway. doing so, you have enough space to crank it.

    Hmm. Didn't he reap? Or is that not illegal across all competitions yet?

    This was submission grappling, so "reaping" of the knee is allowed

    You know it's kind of stupid for him not to tap since there is kind of a large boundary between the pain and injury zone for ankle locks

    Not if they are done right, but most people dont have the right grip.

    OOOOF to that video, that shit was looooud. I got my foot DESTROYED by a straight ankle lock (I have the video too) a month ago in Brazil. One second I was thinking "no way he has it" the next second I felt everything in my foot pop, from the top, down the side, to the back behind my ankle. Like 5 or 6 pops. Had to get carried off the mat by the medic after rolling around on the mats in pain.

    Cavaca's gym is huuuuge on footlocks so I am slowly learning to defend/how fast they can come on.

    Ill put it up at some point today, you cant see much at all though. Its basically us sitting in the 50/50, Matteus rolling away from the camera and then me rolling around on the ground doing somersaults and holding my ankle in pain.

    Not a new grip either. Most people just dont go high enough and get their wrist digging into the right place and have their armpit high enough on the foot. It should hurt before you even start to crank it. Cavaca would go over this like every class. Im still awful at executing straight ankle locks but at least now Im aware of what Im doing wrong.

    First, I started doing Martial Arts when I was 7 to protect my self and NOT to hurt people. The last thing I wanted to hear was this pop. One of the reasons I uploaded this video was so people could see how dangerous straight ankles can be. If you are caught TAP.

    (Here is the break down)
    At 1:37 I try to get the tap with a safe belly up straight ankle. At 1:42 I kept the same grip but roll to my side to add a little more pressure. It is starting to get more dangerous. My shoulder popped out of socket when he the guard pass earlier, I hated to give up the position so at 1:47 I decided to switch grips and go belly down. As you can see, this is a very dangerous straight ankle.

    I don't teach holding the back of the head to pass open guard. I saw his cup coming at my face and through my hands up to block his hips. It was instinct. Not sure exactly were it happened but my shoulder rolled out then kind of rolled back in. Had a bit of a tingle to it. Tips of my fingers are still a numb :)

    Here is a link to my match in the finals.
