    Banned Lockdown

    What's up guys, so I was rolling with one of the instructors of a local gym a few weeks back and his knee popped while I had him in lockdown, since then he has banned it and I was wondering has anyone one else come across the same problem?
    Of course I have to respect his rules but my whole half guard game is lockdown based, I guess I'm just looking for your guys thoughts on the matter and get some advice on how to overcome it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Personally I would be looking for somewhere else to train.

    Well, one can understand banning a technique you think is dangerous... And one could see how one would conclude a technique is dangerous if it pops your knee out... that being said If his knee pops out from lockdown Id hate to see how he held up against someone reppin leglocks or even someone exploding through his guard or etc...

    It would be one thing if he requested you to not use it against him due to an injury/physical issue with his knee, but to ban it completely seems bizarre.

    really he can ask you not to do it, but ban, i think was too much, i always use it , including in Gi competitions .

    Cheers for the input guys, he's a really nice guy, great coach and a much better jiu jitsu player than myself, just feel that banning moves is a slippery slope.

    Use this as an opportunity to grow your game and force yourself to learn more techniques that do not require the lockdown or figure out other ways to play the half guard game. Always grow your game, don't get stuck in having to use a certain technique from certain positions. Just my 2 cents

    Maybe talk to him privately. Invite him out for a beer...free beer always makes people listen. Ask him if he has knee issues etc. Explain that you've never had an issue like this before. I know some people will tap from pressure on the calf etc, but for the knee to pop out...wow. I mean I have dislocated my knee cap 2X and I've been in the lockdown and so far my knee has stayed in place.

    Did he try to roll out of it funny? Did his foot stay still and his leg twist? Just some questions to look at the situation from more angles.
