In this episode of Grapplearts Radio I quiz Eddie Cummings – one of the very best leglock artists active on the competition scene today – about every detail of his leglock game, including :
- Why the heel hook is one of the most efficient submissions for self defense
- How to train leglocks safely
- How a world class grappling competitor spends his days
- Dead ends and rabbit holes that grapplers waste their time on
- How even the ‘basics’ of BJJ are evolving
- And a lot more…
I really enjoyed doing this interview with Eddie, and I hope you’re going to like it too!

Just for fun, here are two of the videos I was thinking about when Eddie and I were discussing no handed ‘cartwheel’ guard passes.
First, a real no-handed cartwheel attempt in MMA…
Next, a front flip (I misremembered this as a cartwheel, but it’s still pretty damn spectacular)…
If you know about any other videos of handless cartwheel or front flip guard passing attempts post them in the comments below and I’ll add them to the list!
