    Plasma, would you recommend forcing the other guy to roll and stay belly down while keeping a lock from the 50/50 guard?. That seems a pretty solid control position.
    I'm not going to give you any better advice than Stephen Kesting

    Belly down leglocks are much harder to escape.

    Face down is the usual preferred position to control someone, as most of us apparently understand already, leg locks or otherwise.

    Indeed. In the case of leglocking, it pretty much nullifies any possibility that they could strike you, work their way into a standing position over you, or manipulate your legs for a counter-attack.

    I find this statement hard to reconcile considering that you list SOMBO in your style field. Are you a beginner in it?

    Also, Goodlun was not being a troll at all. He was mildly insulting at worst. If you plan on sticking around here, you'll need a thicker skin.

    Re: straight ankle locks being difficult, as said by OP...

    Practice them more. I rarely have difficulty with them at all, but have practiced leglocks from literally day one. I honestly have never had trouble with long vs short legs, and if uke is moving too much, then you need to reexamine your control position. Control the outward rotation of the leg you are attacking, and pin the hips.

    Any more information, and I'd be giving a seminar. That'll cost you (tee-hee).

    When I trained with him, that was my initial impression, but as the day went on, I saw he really is quite brilliant. He has an aggressive style that offers no thought to defense, but omoplata into heel hook and other such combos make him a technical threat as opposed to a simple thug.
