The belly-down straight ankle lock has amazing leverage, and isn't necessarily respected as well as it really should be. Best of all, it works extremely well in conjunction with a knee cut guard pass. If you haven't already done so, please refresh your straight ankle lock fundamentals, because this tutorial will contain some sneaky stuff (and some key details that can help you get the submission!).

At about 10:25 to end is a good use of it.  It snapped the gb guys foot.  The coaches were telling him not to tap, he should have tapped.

I like it. There is a guy at our gym who goes for this sometimes, but I've never attempted it.

Thanks for posting.

This is one of my fav moves. I finish differently. Most people are worried about the pass they don't realize they are being foot locked.

Once again another great video.

I use your same set up mostly but finish with my head up and hand on the mat.

Gotcha.   I like to post on my head preemtively.  One reason is safety; I never enjoy having my head spiked into the ground whenever my partner kicks.  

The second reason is power.  My hips are better albe to come forward if my knees are wide and my head is on the ground, but it's a differnet kind of pressure than when you're postured up.  

Hope this all makes sense!  Thanks for sharing the info.

 I don't think the head on the groyund makes a difference in pressure.  When the hip is engaged, it's a terrifying pain.  It's the sensation of all the ligaments in your foot are about to shred.
