slick_mcfavorite - Great video man! I have a question you might have covered but since my computer speakers are messed up I might have missed it.

Do you prefer to attack the ankle on the low side or the side closest to the mat. Or is that just a series from that position you were showing. I was always told if you have a choice to take the high side but Id be interested to hear another perspective if that is your position of choice.

it can work just the same on either side, all the same key points are true no matter the side of the foot. thinking about it, personally, i don't do the cross footlock too much. If they stand up and manage to push the foot on the hip between their legs (stopping me going 50/50) I don't have too much to stop ther guard pass.with the footlock on the other side i can play 1 leg X guard.

 

just my personal thoughts :) i wouldn't say the cross footlock is wrong by any means

I think what slick_mcfavorite meant by 'high side' was turning to the inside with the same-side footlock, i.e. the illegal direction under IBJJF rules.

As for stopping the pass on the cross footlock, I actually like to throw the inside leg over into 50/50 while keeping the outside hook, allowing me to pin the opponent's hips to the mat/sweep him over if he's trying to come up. Then I put the foot back on the hip if I want, adjusting the distance with the outside hook, or just scoot in close to force a massive bend in his leg, Cavaca style.

yes, that way of playing with the 50/50 and the hook is really powerful :D

 

as for turning to the illegal side, you can't do it while keeping the same leg position and you have less control
