How To Do A Heel Hook

The heel hook is one of the most dangerous submissions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and is widely utilized in competition no-gi BJJ. It is done by controlling the hip/knee, as well as the foot. This move applies torque to the ankle, and can result in serious ligament and joint damage if the opponent does not tap out. In this video, 2x BJJ No-Gi World Champion Bruno Pucci from the EVOLVE Fight Team demonstrates how to execute a heel hook.
