· Practice leg locks- The more you understand and train leg locks the safer you will be.
· Don’t force the leg lock- Submissions should not take all your strength to work. Don’t strain too hard, be smooth.
· Control your partner- Before you start applying the pressure have good control of your training partner.
· Work leg locks with more skilled people- Avoid putting leg locks on new practitioners; they will be more likely to get injured.
· Tap when you get caught- It’s no big deal, if you get caught just tap.
· Be aware of your own feet- You are often in danger when you are attacking someone’s leg.
· Tips for when to tap to- Heel hooks, Achilles lock, and Toe hold.
