    My kung fu's definitely pretty weak, since I've only been at it for a year. The kempo's worked most of the time I've had to use it (including, incidentally, applying one of those four leglocks).

    When I have time open for it I'll probably add some submission grappling to what I 'm working on. But since I'm coming back from fairly serious illness, combat effectiveness is not the first priority in my training. I'm not about to ignore it, either, but i've found the kung fu has mixed well with the cardio/weight routine I'm up to, and in my 30s I'm loathe to work through an injury until I've got a better fitness base.

    I'm a n00b here, but if you take the time to scan my posts you'll see that I'm not promoting any weaselly anti-grappling at all. You need grappling and full contact experience to be the most effective fighter and neither I nor my school disagrees with that.

    I'm pretending to be above it all until my post count gets higher.

    Leg locks do not take a particularly long time to learn. As to why you shouldnt teach it to beginners, have you ever seen them attempt to do any type of footlock? Its a hazard waiting to happen its such a clusterfuck.

    Once you're experienced enough with submissions, I believe you can easily move on to twisting footlocks and kneelocks because you've got the experience to know when to tap and to recognize when you're in a bad position.

    If I armbar a beginner and pop his elbow because he was unaware he was caught in a submission, he'll be back at it in a couple of weeks. If I throw a heel hook on that same person, I could possibly cripple him for life, let alone put him out of the game for at least 6-7 months.

    Elbow joints are not nearly as complex as knees are- knees are obviously much more crucial because they're weight bearing joints.

    All leglocks taught and allowed.
    We're careful when it comes to heelhooks, and I wasn't taught it until I had a couple of months' experience, but we use them when we roll.
