ERIK PAULSON: SINGLE HANDEDLY KEEPING ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS IN BUSINESS.

 If you ever find yourself in a combat situation with Erik Paulson (and let's hope you don't), wherein your knee, ankle or heel is just chilling out minding its own business, you can be sure Erik will snap any or all of those bones in a matter of seconds.  You're going to suffer some pretty catastrophic connective tissue damage as well.  And, that, grappler, is certainly something to respect.
 
For a lot of us involved primarily in BJJ, there is not as much of a focus on the finer points of leg submissions.  This is, of course, sharply contrasted to Erik Paulson's catch wrestling system.  Check out the video below and pay close attention to the great detail with which Paulson instructs his students regarding submission techniques.  Even though we all have great coaches and other resources at our own academies, it's really beneficial to see a master like Paulson connect the dots and demonstrate these sweet (and often improperly practiced) submissions.

  1. It's true, the finer points of leg locking are often lost on a lot of BJJ players. Nice find, Paulson is money.
