Posts Tagged ‘heal hook’

Lately, free time was anything but routine. This week in Jiu Jitsu, I was able to attend advanced grappling. The focus of the class was foot locks and heal hooks, which were techniques on breaking the foot and ankle. As I heard the words of the Professor, I knew the class was going to be hard on the feet and ankles. I paired up with a gentle purple belt and a white belt.  A late arrival, a purple belt, paired up with me.It didn’t go well. I tapped myself out more than I had ever done before.  The ankles and feet were sore for a few days after and I did retain a lot. I felt that I was being pushed to the limit on every technique. I didn’t do any exercise or stretching for a few day afterwards. On the positive side, I have a very good understanding of heel hooks and I will never forget this day.
