Great Britain based MMA Fighter Chris smith has donated this Neck Crank/ Shoulder Lock combo to Lockflow.com. You can reach Chris at his Myspace account at http://www.myspace.com/cjsmmabadboy Thanks for the technique Chris, hope to see more from you!
I control my opponent in side position, with one arm around his head and the other inbetween his legs.
I then drive my shoulder forward to push his leg towards his head until I can reach his sleeve with my hand.
Now I have control of his sleeve, I drive my opponents leg even closer to his head until I can reach his gi pants with my other hand. Please note, I keep the arm around his head and control his gi pants at the knee.
Now I have control of his gi pants, I can let go of his sleeve. With my free hand I take control of his belt, and lift him onto his butt.
I now move further around my opponents back and step over his leg. I can now release my grip of his gi pants and belt.
Finally, I clasp my hands together and crank his head towards my body to apply the neck-crank/shoulder-lock.
