San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Coach Kanai Explains Leg-Lock from Closed Guard
This knee-bar (officially known as a leg lock) set up is courtesy of Coach Kanai Brown-Tagle of Gracie Barra San Clementa, CA. In this variation for a set up, Coach Kanai uses his opponents momentum; distracting his opponent by gripping the arm for a devastating knee-bar.
A leglock, also known as a straight leg bar, is done by hyper-extending the knee towards an opposite direction. On a key note, some tournaments and leagues do restrict or ban the use of leg locks.
Note: execute the move with caution. It would be great to ask your instructor on how to safely execute this while in class. Safety should always come first.
