In my BBJ class is everybody is taught at the same time (class is small, hell, 18 is the record). There is however no 'no-gi' option so that must be why I never see these subs. The instructor has however split us up on occasion and said you guys work on 'this' and you guys work on 'that' -or- have us work on some multistep drill and just tell us whites to 'leave out the last part'.
Anyway, I am definitely no expert on anything MA related, I'm just typing random thoughts.
Besides, I realize that the overwhelming majority of you could make my ass tap in no time.

"Any tips on hanging onto the foot before I've started to apply the lock? That is as far as I can get against any decent white belt before he slips out."
You are telegraphiing it by trying to wrap the foot first.Generally you get position and control his leg THEN get the ankle.
Why is then whenever someone asks for advice on leglocks a ton of BJJers come in and say "pass guard" or "dont worry about them"?
I know why.
Because of brazilian propaganda.
Yes, you should knopw how to pass guard.But guys who have slick ankle breaks pass my guard quickwer than anyone else cause I'm more worried about gettong crippled than position.
If someone asks about armbars we don't hear "learn top keep position, forget armbars."
Those of you who have gone for months to a BJJ school and not been shown any leg attacks should have a talk with your teacher.I don't care if he is Rickson Gracie, he is holding back way too much.
If you pay him to teach you effective grappling then you are getting screwed.He has not kept his side of the bargain.

I of course agree with the rest. Mainly because I know you know more than me.

Until it became apparent that the poster should probably gain a little more experience, I was just waiting for someone to post about applying a toe hold from the guard. :)

I would never want to be confrontational with Mr. Machine because A) he knows more about grappling than I probably ever will, and B) he could beat my ass silly,
If he were talking about self defense, mma, or anything else were these techniques would be allowed/suggested than blasting the BJJers would be appropriate. However...
