    So a simple defense- keep a hand deep in your opponents collar. Not only will you be half way to an X choke, you'll open other opportunities for sweeps. By keeping a good deep grip, its very difficult for your opponent to fall back and attack your feet. Should he succeed in getting the space he needs, you can use his momemtum as he falls back and follow him up to the top position. This will also reward you with 2 points.
    It doesn't really happen when people are in my guard actually. I am pretty good about breaking people down, and when they are in my guard they don't get very far. It's usually transitional positions, like while I'm passing or something. It's not like its always occurring, but it happened last night and I was annoyed. I need to step up that part of my game, because I don't like dominating and then getting stuck in something stupid that I can't get out of just because I don't know how or haven't practiced it enough.

    If you're good at controlling the hips, and it sounds like you are, then the last bit you need is defending your foot it it gets caught. Think of it like a wrist-lock that someone tries to slap on you: unless they've got good control over your body, you can wriggle free.

    And for Ming, dude when I first started conditioning like this it seemed like I always had to help a friend move or the next day on the job was carrying plywood up 3 floors or some ****. It was awful. :)

    ... Blue Belts and white belts have to worry about the same straight ankle lock.


    the only difference in rules between white and blue is blues can do wrist locks.
    FACT- Eddie Bravo invented the triangle choke when he used it to tap out helio gracie at an ac/dc concert.

    In NAGA NE White it was no attacks below the waist, with ambiguity as to where crotch-rippers/lady-makers fit in.

    My favorite drill is this one: Both you and your partner sit facing each other with your legs extended about a foot or so from each other. Your right leg is over his left and his left is over your right (or visa versa). We you say go, both of you fight for ankle locks.

    Just remember, the first thing you should do when someone goes for your leg is extend it. They can't ankle lock you if your leg is straight, so lock is out. Then work to seperate their legs and reverse the position (if that's what you want to do).

    well those aren't submissions. if you count that then you'd have to count most takedowns too.


    NAGA's rules are wierd. I never realized they disallowed striahgt ankle locks for white belts when they allow heel hooks, knee bars and toe-holds for Novices in No-Gi. In BJJ you can't do anything but the straight ankle like until brown belt, and even then it's still no heel hooks.

    At our gym (and I believe the local tournys in my area) allow everything but heel hooks at blue. It isn't like that elsewhere?

    Russians think chokes are "silly", I seriously heard this. Brazillians think footlocks are "cheap", I heard that as well (which is F-king LOL considering that BJJ gyms near me charge $195-215 for basic membership). Americans think that shorts have to come to your kneecaps or you are queer.

    To each his own I suppose.

    *snaps fingers*

    Oh yeah! Welcome new MOD jnp! Hahaha, fvkk U! ELEVEN!!!!11!!!ZMOG TEH JITZ IN DEH HAUS!!!! When will you start this thread?: Groundgame, is it a "chess-match" or a "D&D quest"?
