The Depth Charge aka The Leg Lock Swim Move

Anyone who has played with leg locks before knows that one of the most annoying things someone can do when you are trying to leg lock them is to spin out. While many jiu jitsu and mma guys think that a spinning opponent equals no more leg lock, I beg to differ. In the video below Coach Chris Herzog of 10th Planet Rochester shows a great transition that you can use to still maintain control of a spinning opponent and finish with a heel hook.

Having tried this transition myself I have found that it works very smoothly to transition to the wedge or knee knot position. Using this move has helped me finish Leg Locks that I normally would have lost.

If you would like to learn this move please hit me up and come check out 10th Planet Van Nuys!
