Failed ezekiel to spine lock from mount (deficent?)
OK, so last night I got a spine lock from mount after class was really over so I did not get a chance to ask about it. I am wondering if this is a poor move against a better player.
I am in mount. I have the ezekiel with his chin pointing to my left, but his chin is tucked and I am not making headway to getting my forearm under it. I shift my base off to the right and hook his right leg with my left. I use this hook to turn his body to the right getting him to tap long before I lost range of movement with the hooking leg.
Am I setting myself up for failure by the base shift? Is this a valid spine lock on most players or was it a fluke?
