|Or, should we say "You Won't Be Kneeding That!" Get, it, grappler!?|
We've all been there before. From the seated guard (basically a 50/50 position), you and your opponent both simultaneously attempt Achilles locks (aka straight foot-locks, legal in IBJJF, as long as there is no reaping) on each other. This can quickly become a standoff, and you can easily lose if your opponent nails you first (there must be some Game Theory to apply to this, but, I went to state college and I just don't have an answer for you).
Moving on, check out Darrin's nasty alternative to the dueling foot-lock stalemate, that results in ultimate calf/knee destruction. We love this. Is it legal in IBJJF? Maybe if you are brown or black belt, but for those below, compression locks will get you a one-way ticket to DQlandia. So, you may need to practice this on poor, unsuspecting spandex wearers at Grappler's Quest and NAGA events. Go snap some knees.
Notes: Thanks to DSTRYR/sg resident CACC/Sambo coach, Montreal's own Martin Roy, for the heads up. This was recently shot at an RAF seminar Norilsk, Rissia.
