Kenny McClure Ankle Lock Seminar
Saturday, June 26, 2004
1:00PM to 5:00 PM
The primary focus of this seminar is to build a deep understanding of the straight ankle lock that will allow the student to develop his or her own individualized ankle lock game. The seminar is arranged into a logical progression of material so that each section builds upon the principals of the previous section. The primary topics of the seminar are as follows:
Attacking the Ankle (45% of the Seminar) – the fundamental principals behind the ankle lock (angles, leverage, positioning, etc.), different finishing positions and set-ups, developing sensitivity and transitions, etc.
Defending Against the Ankle Attack (25% of the Seminar) – preventing and countering the attacks from the previous section.
Recovering from a Countered Ankle Attack (25% of the seminar) – This is the single most problematic area for most people. This section covers techniques and strategies on how to recover position, or in some case the submission, once the ankle lock has been successfully countered.
Progressions (5% of the seminar) – Placing together combinations of Attacks, counters, and recoveries to form realistic drills that can be practiced to increase transitioning and sensitivity skills as well as technical abilities.
