After his opponent's feet are uncrossed, Saulo now pushes himself back and away from his opponent, giving him the space he needs to stand up into base.

From the 50/50 guard, Masakazu sits up and bends his opponent's knee to trap his foot, with the outside of the foot against his ribs. He holds the leg at the Achilles tendon like a guillotine, and uses his legs to squeeze the leg he's attacking tight. He twists his body to finish the ankle lock, which torques the joint the same way a toe hold does.

Masakazu now shows how he likes to defend a foot lock. His first point of focus is to relax his foot, and not focus on the pain. Rather than trying to escape the foot lock, he counters with an attack of his own. He simply grabs his opponent's foot, which is hooked under his leg, and torques it at the heel, forcing him to tap from the heel hook.

Now he can easily trap the foot and finish a heel hook. He also shows how to continue the movement over and over as a drill.
