Professor Oli Geddes has given a good template for anybody to begin incorporating footlocks to their repertoire. For the seasoned bjj player, there are smaller details that one can do to firm up their techniques as well. Oli has reaffirmed himself as an 'OG' of the halfguard and footlock subgames of bjj.

Oli Geddes excellent first solo effort in the realms of instructionals comes to the premier BJJ instructional platform I don't think I have to introduce Oli Geddes to the people that frequent Digitsu so I start with the technical details of “Footlock Mastery”. First, the camerawork is, with a few minor exceptions, excellent. There are now fancy camera tricks nor are there any slow motion repetitions (I don’t really care for them, but if you like them, be advised). The for a lack of better term costume department also did a great job. BJJ is sometimes hard to follow visually, so every little detail helps, especially in leglock situations. While other instructionals in that category usually show a lot of hairy man leg, Oli and his uke wear different colored gis, which makes it super easy to spot whose leg is whose. On to general infos about the product. “Footlock Mastery” runs for roughly 67 minutes and it’s chock full of techniques. There are the following overarching topics. General positioning and finishing Footlock from 50/50 Standing Ankle lock (aka Single leg X-guard) Sweeps Overhook X Guard Entering the Footlock from Top Position Defense To every topic there are the techniques you can see on the Digitsu page. I won’t go into detail about them, but Olis finishing technique helped me out immensely. Before, I would use the technique of other, well known footlockers but couldn’t quite make it work for me. In combination with Oli’s finishing method, I get the tap most of the time I secure the footlock. While "Footlock Mastery" is on the market since 06. Juli of this year, the Digitsu Version adds value to it by letting you replay single techniques more easily, since Oli goes through the move once, twice tops, which was my main gripe with the initial release. Now that this is addressed, I can only give it 5 stars. P.S. If this sounds like promo material, that’s on me and not the fault of the product. ;-)

Great techniques with detailed explanations and some of the best production I have seen in a jiu jitsu instructional. Lots of footlocks options, applicable for both gi and no gi. Great explanations on finishing the footlock and a variety of setups. And it's all ibjjf legal. Awesome instructional
