    lockdown from the back

    Is this part of the system?

    It looks like a lockdown, but from the back?

    The lockdown is (and I quote) the "heart of the system." The principle can apply from virtually anywhere; top, bottom, side, back, really anywhere that lends itself to grapevining your legs. Much like how the rubber guard controls first then can set up offense, so too does the lockdown. Pain in the ass to deal with if you know how to use it

    The more I learn about JJ the more amazed I am by how much Eddie has moved the art forward. He appears to be the 2nd most innovative person in the history of JJ, after Helio.

    I'm not talking about "the best". There are tons of those guys, each in their era. Who was better than Rickson? But how many positions did Rickson contribute? How many has Eddie contributed?

    And then if you take Eddie's philosophy and approach toward the art... The most fundamental underlying concept is to improve, grow, adapt, evolve. Assimilate what works, discard what becomes obsolete.

    I'm amazed.

    I wouldn't say lock down is the heart of the system, it's a key component but not the heart. There's quite a few soldiers that don't even play lockdown

    From Eddie himself. Lockdown is the heart.

    haha that's where I got it, wasn't quite ballsy enough to declare that on my own.

    Somewhere in there should be the clinch too. Maybe the skin.

    Looks like a transitional step from the Truck to taking the back, or Twister.

    The back (with grapevine) is my favorite entrance to the truck/twister set-up. I've been playing around with a half-Nelson control to keep the opponent from spinning out. people all the time let you keep one hook when they are defending full back control, they raise their hip up and everything...just giving you the truck. Here's a video from my overtime round at a tournament a few months ago...forget the fact that I got my dumb ass arm barred by getting too excited on the calf crank...but I was able to hit that set up from the back twice.
