    Sweet, will use this explanation in the future.

    Unfortunately its been a bit of time since I have trained.

    Here is my 2 cents.

    One your close enough to San Diego, save up enough to come down and do a private with Dean I don't know what they run but they are not THAT expensive.
    I am a bit biased for reasons.
    I would say he is the best overall teacher of foot locks and has the best top entries into leg locks around.
    Besides being a fairly competent competitor is actually also a really good instructor with encyclopedic knowledge of grappling.
    That grappling for MMA, Self Defense, IBJJF, and Submission Grappling.
    While he is known for leg locks the rest of his game is seriously solid.

    You are also close enough to drop in for a private lesson with Gokor.
    These will likely run you more than a trip to victory.
    While I have not trained with him myself. Its obvious the man knows what he is doing.
    To me where he might outshine Dean a little is the Standing transitions to Leg Locks.
    His take down work is top notch.

    Then the next time you are out in NY Danaher is the man to see. Once again have not trained with him but from what I have seen.
    His system of attacks makes a lot of use of Outside Ashi/Single Leg X
    May have a slight edge on Dean when it comes to leg locks from the bottom.

    Of these 3 gentlemen there does seem to be a preference for the outside reap.
    For an inside reaping you might want to take a look at Ryan Hall's stuff.
    Though once again you can get great 50/50 instruction from Dean.

    Once again before you take any advice from me know that I stand right on the very peak of Mt Stupid when it comes to grappling stuff especially leg locks.
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.

    I think Dean has made his older KATCH leg lock videos freely available I know I got a legitmate download of it from somewhere.

    edit maybe not the whole thing but there is this
    http://www.bjj-super-deals.com/

    He has a newer DVD out that is probably worth looking at.
    Gokor and Hall both have decent enough DVDs.
    I don't think Danaher has any sort of content right now.
    Though there is a lot that can be seen by watching Eddie Cummings, Gordon Ryan, and Garry Tonon compete.
    Especially at Flow Grappling and EBI.

    During a class in ABQ, I was shown to reap the knee with my outside leg, but to then tuck my inside leg shin under the leg I was attacking. The object being to control the leg I am not attacking with my closest hand, lift, and get both of my feet tucked under the leg I am not attacking as a finishing position. In essence, always finishing the straight ankle or heel hook with one hand while I controlled the free leg with my other hand.

    Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? Thoughts on the merits of each finishing position?
    The position you just learned is superior as it hides your feet from counter attacks. However, getting that control on the legs can be it's own battle. The first method is quicker to set up and I often finish ankle locks and heel hooks from your first method.
