At what point did you start training Foot and Ankle Locks?

If you are a coach, when do you allow your stedents to work with them? Any restrictions?

I knew them from the start but my Brazilian Instructors never taught them and would only occasionally use them in class. I learned my Lower Body stuff almost exclusively from my coach, Luis. His students used to heelhook me all over the mat.

I will teach my new guys straight ankle locks. We will drill heelhooks after they have game with that basic lock. I do not allow heelhooks when we roll.
