How to Do the Foot Lock Defense in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Learn how to do the foot lock defense from Alliance MMA black belt Babs Olusanmokun in this Howcast Brazilian Jiu Jitsu video.


So here we are, defense of the foot lock. Max has already got my foot here. He's got it trapped. He's about to extend away. He's got the foot on my hip. I immediately have to get up and grab his collar. I can't wait there. His job is to push me back with this. Don't go back. You'd never do this. Some guys get caught in a foot lock, trade it, and they watch the guy. You're going to tap. Unless you have rubber legs, you're going to tap. I immediately grab the collar and now my hand is going to grab this leg. Push it off. It's an obstacle. Get rid of the obstacle. Take my hips over, plant my hand, pull, elevate myself, and I get them out. And that's your foot lock defense.
