10th Planet Jiu Jitsu: Counter To The Lockdown

I found this counter on Mixedmartialarts.com, it’s from Straight Blast UK. The biggest beef I have is that when he grabs his leg to begin the counter, he has good posture. If the lockdown is being done correctly, you’ve stretched out your opponent, and taken away their base.

Another problem I can foresee is, when he breaks the lockdown, and tries to come back on top, it doesn’t seem like he can keep good control. This would cause a scramble and at that point it’s anybody’s game. 

I do like the usage of sunglasses however.

    the only way this pass would work is if you tried it on the girl in the video (and if she’s drunk). try it on anyone else with a half decent lockdown, and you might as well just sweep yourself (which is basically what the guy did in the video)

    ‘That girl’ is Rosi Sexton (http://www.sherdog.com/fighter/Rosi-Sexton-5358). If it works on her it’s good enough for me.
