Just curious who everyone studies for leg locks.
Ryan Hall and tyrone glover... that is about it
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.
If you can get your hands on Vince Field's material, that is generally held to be exceptional. I think it was available on RMATA.com- The Realistic Martial Arts Training Association
Budovideos.com - Leglock Encyclopedia 5 DVD Set with Gokor Chivichyan
Worth every penny. I just watched in amazement for about five hours. Very detailed.
A sambo guy. They teach leglocks from day one.
Watch some of Rick Macauleys grappling matches and go to a seminar if you get the chance, that guy can maul a leg!
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.
Gokor, Paulson, Bodycombe, Imanari, Funaki.
what no mention of Toquinho??? this guy YouTube - Masakazu Imanari Highlight Video
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.
Paulson or Gokor. Cannot go wrong either way.
word. he's excellent at weaving a coherent package out of what might otherwise be a confusing mess. and the goat's skool is in richmond, va.
Gokor's technique is ridiculous. The guy is a definate master.
Ryan Hall, Imanari and I hear a lot of sambo is leg locks.
I am surprised no one mention Satoru Kitaoka
This! (and Sambo Steve)
End of thread.
Gokor, Bodycomb and my grappling coach, Kris Iatskevich
Shooto Japan.... get you schooled right and proper...
