    Ricky Lundell Discusses Leg Locks

    Really cool article. It's an interview with Ricky Lundell sharing his thoughts on leg locks and their place in the BJJ and MMA community. He says some interesting things. Seems like a very intelligent guy.

    Impressive credentials for sure. And I definitely appreciate his opinion. I hope this spreads.

    Great interview. One thing I learned the hard way about leg locks and the knee joint is that ligaments do not have many nerve endings in them which means that you don't really feel pain until the ligament tears and then you take a trip to the hospital. You feel pressure that you think you can fight your way through and then you hear a loud pop and then the pain.

    Amen, I agree with his points on Sambo too. I visit a Sambo school once a week, and those guys all know when to tap (and let u know when to tap) so **knock on wood** they haven't had any major injuries for years (and the extensive time they spend warming up and thoroughly each body part, another key to avoiding being jacked.

    Great article. Leg locks have become a big part of my game the last few years. I think I will post this in our school

    Very true. I'm so lucky my pop wasn't an injury but I learned an incredibly valuable lesson. You really do feel like your leg has a little more give. But that give is like a millimeter from injury.

    Reilly Bodycomb is a Sambo guy that I learned a lot about leg locks from and the way that they train leg locks is that it's like tag. Once you secure the position and set up the heel hook/toe hold/knee bar you let it go and start over. He said they do not try to make people tap in training. The only leg lock that they will tap people with in training is the Achilles straight foot lock because you feel pain when you attack the Achilles (tendons have lots of nerves in them). I would also avoid extending straight foot locks or twisting foot locks because they attack ligaments instead.
