I don't want to hate on Bas or anything, but that heel hook defense is really stupid.

Don't extend your leg, because you're going to get caught in a straight ankle lock that hurts like a b*tch.

It's better to shorten your leg and slip it in between your opponents as a way to improve your leverage as you roll.

Actually this is a fairly complicated move.

I'm starting to use my camera to do some picture documenting, so you guys can see what I'm talking about.

So this will be the move I show on here.

EDIT: Do you want it from this mutual leg-lock position?
