Be forewarned, I will delete any off topic posts made in DHS. I don't think it's unreasonable of me to ask everyone posting in DHS to stay on topic. After all, there are plenty of forums on this website for talking trash.
DHS, however, is not one of them.

Footlocks are allowed in competition, different types depending on your rank. The risk doesnt outweigh the benefit often enough, especially when its so easy to slip a hand in the collar and defend.

The simple drill of both partners taking an ankle and on, "1..2...3...GO!" you see who taps first is a good instinct builder for this.Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

Granted, but there are other ways to utilize footlocks. Reaping the knee is not allowed in gi competition, but you can still attack with belly down footlocks, which are very effective if you're opponent is unaware of how to defend.
Obviously more footlock options are available in no gi however, thats not to say that footlocks are illegal or useless in gi competition.

Gabetuno- how did it go with your leg-lock D?

Good. I'm getting better. I'm seeking out guys in my class who are leg hunters to roll with, and inevitably when they dig for something, I'm fighting out of it. It's also getting me to think more creatively about my offense. Even if I'm not so great at finishing them, I'm finding that if I openly show for them, people free up more of their necks and arms, which is really where I make my bread and butter.Originally Posted by Sarcastro
