Everyone loves to Heel Hook! With the rise in popularity of BJJ in recent years, the popularity of Heel Hooks rose as well, with professional athletes using them to win not just matches but entire tournaments. It’s needless to say that if this "Leglock" isn’t a part of your BJJ skill-set, then it’s about time that it does.
