OK, so last night I got a spine lock from mount after class was really over so I did not get a chance to ask about it. I am wondering if this is a poor move against a better player.
I am in mount. I have the ezekiel with his chin pointing to my left, but his chin is tucked and I am not making headway to getting my forearm under it. I shift my base off to the right and hook his right leg with my left. I use this hook to turn his body to the right getting him to tap long before I lost range of movement with the hooking leg.
Am I setting myself up for failure by the base shift? Is this a valid spine lock on most players or was it a fluke?

Best description my partner could give it based on where he felt the pressure. I initially started the move as a way to try to force him to move his damn chin, the sub was a bit of a surprise in that I did not think I could get him far enough for a spine lock at the time.

OK, where am I losing you? Is it my description of the event or "wtf is a spine lock"?

The spin lock for starters, what is it and how is it applied.
PICTURES would be nice, bitch.

Yeah yeah, so would google. My understanding of spine locks (as a class of subs like armbar) is putting the spine through its full range of twisting, locking it out, and then twisting a bit more. For instance we do a spine lock from a failed/defended RNC in certain situations.
Eddie Bravo has some stuff up on them; maybe he has pics.
Mostly, I just sit here. Mostly.

No, we need pictures of you, not Eddy doing the twister.

so is the spin lock the twister?

That would a long time coming (read never) since I do not have a cam to readily demonstrate the random move I stumbled into. OK, fair enough.
