Footlock Mastery is now available!

This is the result of several months of hard work, and many many hours of teaching this material in seminars throughout the world. The aim of this instructional is to give the viewer a complete game built around the footlock or straight ankle lock, a submission that is incredibly versatile and also legal at all levels of competition. I am exceptionally proud of the final product and hope that you enjoy watching it and using the material contained inside as much as I enjoyed the experience of making it!
