    Definitely Ryan Hall for the 50/50 reverse heel hook

    Also in MMA Minowa has a ton of wins by kneebar and toehold

    I'm not really a leglock guy but I enjoy watching videos of those guys.

    Imanari is obviously famous for his leglocks too

    I still have not got the 50/50 video. Love Imanari. Bodycomb's some stuff that I like too.

    Joe Baize is a friend of mine and has some very beautiful blending of upper body and lower body entrances. He has LL several BBs in comp.

    Forgot to mention, Andrew smith aka Goatfury teaches an excellent leglock seminar. If you are anywhere around northern Virginia, it would definitely be worth it to take a lesson or a private or a seminar from him if you get the chance.

    Max Bishop. Gokor's right hand man and his leg lock knowledge is second only to gokor. Never met anyone who gets close to those two.

    Gokor's technique is ridiculous. The guy is a definate master.
