    sometimes shown to lower belts (on an individual basis), but typically reserved for black belt and above to prevent over-exhuberant lower belts cranking out knees, etc.

    edit: crank are allowed but are typically only used between certain partners (when you get a feel for their level and degree of control). i have a taller partner who likes to crank my neck *grumble grumble*

    Are there any real hazards with hip cranks, or are they just unusually and scary sounding?

    I would like to change my vote to "White belts can try leg locks, but the higher belts (especially brown belts) are not going to tap to the crossed-foot lock and will just choke you unconcious".

    Where I train everything is a go however Iím not sure Iím down with the policy anymore. Almost three years ago I was training with what would amount to be a white belt in any bjj school and I was letting him work different finishing holds while rolling. I let him get me in a knee bar and he just leans back and cranks it. I never knew my voice had such power until the day I yelled **** at the top of my lungs like that. Iím surprised my ďchi energiesĒ didnít break the glass doors. Needless to say my training since that day is always spotty depending on the weather, how much Iím warmed up or if Iíve twisted my knee funny doing such dangerous tasks as getting up from the sofa to grab a beer. Not to mention walking down hill is a mother f-er!! Control is difficult with certain leg attacks and what doesnít hurt a bit one second can cripple you permanently the next.

    Yeah, a yellow belt once knee-barred me in Judo becuase he landed sitting on my knee and decided he could do the same thing as an arm lock. I immediately told him to stop and kicked him in the back.

    Only blue belts and above are allowed to do leg locks and they can do whatever leg lock they want.

    Here's the only hip crank description I can find online. This isn't the one I experienced:

    Schools want to be safe with leglocks, okay, be safe. But if you dont do them, my guys are going to cripple your guys in competition. And thats a promise.
