Leg Lock Workshop

Leg Lock Workshop on Saturday May 20, 2017 2-4pm at Excel Jiu Jitsu Academy Oceanside, California

What’s the Big Deal about Leg Locks?

The Leg Lock game has evolved tremendously over the years and now, it has become the Submission of choice for many Grapplers.  To keep up and to keep evolving with the sport of BJJ and the Martial Art of Jiu Jitsu, learning the Leg Lock game is a must. Most Traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools are very limited with their Leg Lock application due to the potential injury that may occur. The IBJJF and SJJIF Jiu Jitsu Associations have a tremendous amount of rules regulating Leg Locks because of the severity of potential injuries that may happen.  You break someone’s arm they may keep fighting.  You break their leg, and they are just about helpless.

Leg Lock workshop seminar at Excel Jiu Jitsu Academy Oceanside Vista CaliforniaAs a Martial Artist, we need to sharpen our knowledge of all submissions, including Leg Locks.  Leg Locks have been around forever and we need to be educated on how to apply and defend these awesome submissions.

Learning Leg Locks

As mentioned earlier, it’s important to understand that most BJJ Academy’s leave out the LegLeg Lock Grappling techniques, Martial Arts Principles and concepts Lock submissions in their curriculum because of the potential injury that may occur. By respecting Leg Locks and honoring the fact that Leg Locks can be incredibly dangerous, we must leave our ego at the door.  “We gotta tap!”  We must be humble…“We gotta tap!” Most of the injuries happen on the attempted escape of Leg Locks. If your opponent or training partner gets to your legs and ‘catches’ you, then tap out.  No ego. Learn from it and you protect yourself in the process.

The Key to learning leg locks is to have quality information that brings awareness to the game.  Then training and teaching students to be good training partners so that Leg Locks can be trained with minimal injury. By presenting solid information, creating a cooperative training environment, and building a spirit of teamwork, we can make training Leg Locks a lot of fun.
