Straight Footlock 101

During my early years in the grappling arts I was introduced to the world of Sambo by my Jiu Jitsu coach, Trevor Roberts, who implemented Sambo moves in his groundwork.  During this time, I trained a lot with Matthew Clempner and competed in Sambo events run by Martin Clarke and Matthew Clempner up and down the UK.

At this time, a lot of the BJJ guys were competing in these events as BJJ events were thin on the ground, so anything to do with grappling on the competition circuit and we were in there.  

Sambo is a great addition to your grappling game, these guys are the king of leg locks and in this video Vlad Koulikov gives an in depth analysis into the world of the ankle nibbler.
