From here, to help me keep foot control, grab his foot because now he can't. I have both his feet, and the best control that I can offer you guys, is to get to position four. Right now, we're in position one. I'm going to push, position two. You're going to lift and defend, position three. Going to roll, over, under.

Now I'm in position four squeezing my knees tight, my hips tight. I can let go with my hands, because he can't move. He can't do anything. I have him so tight. Then from here I can do whatever submission I want. I can even come up and hip lock him. This is the best tip I can give you for keeping control is get to position four, no matter which particular submission you want. And those are your tips for keeping leg and foot control.
