How to Do Leg Locks with Bradley Desir

Learn about Bradley Desir, one of Howcast's leg lock experts, in this video.


Hi, guys, I'm Brad Desir. I'm a professional mixed martial artist. I got into MMA when I was in the Marine Corp. You know, I was getting choked out when we'd do bull in the ring, just wrestling around with other Marines. So somebody told me to go to the local gym and ask for MMA. I got in and see a lady at the front and I'm thinking that this lady is MMA. First name Emma, last name May, so I said, "Hi, I'm Brad Desir, I'm looking for MMA." She said, "Yes, MMA is this, it's that, it's this."

I said, "No, no, no. I'm not looking for kickboxing, more Thai, jujitsu, I'm looking for MMA." She was like, "Yes, MMA is jujitsu, kickboxing, wrestling, sambo, everything, judo, you put it together and it's MMA." I'm like, "No, lady, you're not understanding me." I'm arguing with her and she's like, "Hey, do you have shorts." I said, "Yes." She said, "Change and get on the mat." I changed, I got on the mat, and instantly I was hooked. I became obsessed with it. I just wanted to get better. I've been training nonstop and competing nonstop ever since.

Currently I'm traveling, training, and fighting, but the best way to contact me is to go to my website You can go to contact Us.
