 I've heard rumors that the lockdown half guard is illegal per IBFJJ rules at No-Gi Worlds (at least at Blue and Purple belt level).  Any truth to this?

The lockdown is not a leglock. Of any sort. That's like saying that a bearhug is a submission. I wouldn't be surprised if the ibjjf banned the Lockdown but I find it highly unlikely. Especially no-gi.

It would be very odd that its illegal.

Then again, there are a lot of odd rules haha.

Roger Gracie fights at the black belt level.

The OP asked about blue and purple belt levels.

I learned the "lock down" as a calf slicer submission initially...and I think that maybe considered an illegal submission under ibjjf rules under black (brown?). My assumption is that if you used it as a way to control your opponent and set up sweeps/submissions (like Eddie does) you'd prolly be fine...but if you locked down (no pun) on his leg, and really pulled up with the double underhooks, you might be in trouble (under black level)...especially if your opponent complains.

If the lockdown isn't legal then the (Anaconda Body Lock) shouldn't be legal cause they are pretty much the same thing just a method of control.<br> And the (Anaconda Body Lock) could be done in a way that makes it a spine attack.<br> At least I would argue that if someone cried and tried to get it banned ;-)

lockdown is 100% legal. Twister is not, I wish it was though.
