All stylists and ranks are welcome to join us for an intensive workshop on leg attacks and submissions. Leg locks are often overlooked and misunderstood by many martial artist’s who feel they are low percentage techniques, but if done properly leg attacks can catch your opponent off guard, and in a self defense situation can end an altercation decisively!
Leg attacks can be categorized into two different foci: Straight (linear) attacks, or Twisting (circular) attacks.
Sat. May 16th 12:30-3:30pm
Linear Attacks (Straight Ankle Locks / Knee Bars): Learn proper set ups, intricate details on securing the lock, how to protect yourself from getting tapped while attempting leg attacks, and how to finish the locks effortlessly.
Sat. May 16th 4:30-7:30pm
Circular Attacks (Toe Holds / Heel Hooks): Tim will guide the students through every detail and aspect of these devastating fight-enders! Positional dominance will be key throughout the weekend’s seminars, as will proper mechanics to ensure these techniques can be employed from various positions.
