The sport of No-Gi jiu-jitsu is really expanding and the rule sets usually allow all leg submissions. No submission is more effective in these competitions than the heel hook and Prof. Braulio is bringing us some advanced heel hook techniques to prepare Gracie Barra students for all leg lock games.
In our first video, we find Prof. Braulio locked in a 50/50 Guard position with his opponent. The opponent is looking for a reverse heel hook attack on Prof. Braulio.
Pay Attention To: How Prof. Braulio moves in the same direction that the opponent is applying the heel hook pressure. This movement negates the lock and allows Prof. Braulio to roll, and position his bodyweight in a safe position and look to extricate himself from the lock.

In video #2, Prof. Braulio has stopped the opponent's attack and now advances the position to attack with a heel hook of his own. Pay attention to how Prof. Braulio pulls the opponent's leg over, exposing the opponent's heel for reverse heel hook.
Prof. Braulio says "I have to release the pressure, trick him on the wrong side, free my knee because Everytime my knee is free...I'm free from the heel hook, and trap his own knee."
