The Inverted Heel Hook

Uchi Mata for MMA, the Exorcist Crank, Karo Parisyans Knee Bar, these are all recent articles which I feel give great demonstrations and explanations of certain MMA techniques which are definitely worth holding in ones arsenal.

The following is another great demonstration of the Inverted Heel Hook and how it can be applied in defence to an attempted ankle lock. Explained by Bas Rutten this technique requires correct leverage, correct body positioning and control in order to be successful. The reason I say it needs control is that it is a very dangerous joint lock which can not only damage the ankle but also the knee and if care is not taken when applying the technique you could injure your sparring partner or if it’s in competition, you could find yourself disqualified.
