In this BJJ Library class, guest instructor from Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu Sydney Australia, Bernard "Trekko" Magalhaes, shows some variations of the foot lock. While passing the guard standing, from a headquarters position, he keeps one hand on the chest to keep his opponent down and his other arm hugs his opponent's foot to his hip. When ready to attack, he sits back wrapping his arm around the shin, places his outside foot on the hip and feeds the collar to his attacking hand. The common reaction from his opponent is to push the foot off the hip and scoot over his leg, so when that happens, Bernardo turns belly down to the outside, posts his free hand and sprawls his hips as he looks up to finish the foot lock.
