When I can help it, I like leg locks to get a tap out of people before they realize what the heck is happening to them. That’s really my preference.

Reader Request: Sneaky Leg Locks

We recently had another reader named Paul (so many Pauls in the MicroBJJ world, what is going on?!) who basically had asked for something different, unique, sneaky. Something people WOULDN’T see coming.

Aaaah, yes. Here’s a submission I hit a long time ago as a blue belt and I’ve been using it to tap better grapplers than me since:

That bounce-over achilles lock is a very sharp attack, especially when that far leg is already relatively bent and so your “bite” on the ankle is exactly what it should be.

See if you can’t get some taps on some big guys, with that one, Paul! 🙂

Be well – more to come!
