All right, guys. Now I'm going to show you a belly-down ankle lock and I'm going show it to you at a transition from the side-control ankle lock that we had covered in a previous video. So we're going to start from side-control. We're causing damage always. We always want to cause damage. I come into that hold, I reach back, grab that ankle as I'm falling. This common defense is going to be he's going to try to roll out.

So what I'm going to do is I'm going to take my right foot and I'm going to hook it inside his left knee pit. I'm going to butterfly. I'm going to windshield wiper here. Hook, so when he goes to roll, I can throw him over and stay on top. I'm going to come to my knees and I'm going to arch back here.

There are a bunch of other moves you could do from here, but this is the one I'm going to focus on.
Nice guillotine grip, if you have a guillion, you can grab it here. If not, tight. Finish right there. That's how you do belly-down ankle lock.
