How to correctly escape a heel hook and a sneaky rib compression December 25, 2014 07:44
In this weeks video I show you how to correctly attempt escaping an outside heel hook. I also teach you a sneaky rib compression that you can do if someone sits up to hand fight you while you're applying a heel hook.
I mention it several times in this video because I feel it's very important for safety. You will often times see someone in Jiu Jitsu franticly rolling/spinning out of a heel hook attempt. Many times getting out of the move by doing this. It's very important to understand that most bjj practitioners (not all) are not applying heel hooks correctly in the first place. Trying to spiral out of a heel hook when it's applied correctly can injure you.
