Hey everybody, last week I posted a technique video on how to execute the Arm Spin and Knee Tap Takedowns, if you want to see it, click here.  After posting the technique, I had a few jokers ask for a heel hook escape video since my brother just recently loss by heel hook - so here it is :)  Between my brother and I, we got about 40 or more leg lock submission victories versus advanced/pro level grappling competitors (my bro has like 4 or 5 leg lock victories in ADCC alone) and between the two of us, we have only been tapped once by a leg lock, so I think I can consider myself an expert on leg locks and escapes :) I've actually never been tapped by any joint lock, my only sub losses have been to chokes.

So I went ahead and put up the video you see above, which I maxed out my youtube time at 15:00 to show two great escapes with as much detail as possible.  The first one is the classic rolling escape but with an emphasis on one often overlooked crucial detail, and the second escape is a de la Riva counter that will give you your opponent's back after he attempts the heel hook on you, check it out.

If you like the video, please do me favor and bump this thread up with a "TTT" and/or like my video and post a comment on youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmTgAB7XO3E By bumping this thread, liking my video on youtube, and/or posting a comment on youtube it helps promote me and my gym so I'd appreciate the help.

Next week I'll post another technique, it is one of my favorite submissions from the bottom halfguard. Oh, one more thing, I love feedback, so if anybody hits this move in training or in a match, please post some feedback on my facebook page wall at www.facebook.com/MarcosAvellan and "like" my page.

  Hey guys, just letting everyone know that tomorrow I'll have the new video up.  I got really sick yesterday and was on medication, I would have looked like a zombie, and the move is my best guard pass, so it needs to be done at its best! :)  Tomorrow night it will be up.  Just search for "Avellan" and it will pop up.

Toquinho - Would this work against palhares? <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


Just goes to show how devastating Toquinho's heel hooks are if he can pull them off against people such as the Avellan's who have this much training and experience with heel hooks themselves
