BjjBrick Podcast- BJJ, no-gi and good times!

·         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.
