Lockflow.com is proud to have Open weight King of Pancrase Champion and former UFC heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett demonstrating some of his favorite submission techniques. For more information on Josh, visit his site at JoshBarnett.TV
Josh comments on this technique "Here is a simple, yet very effective tie-up on the feet. I used a lot in Freestyle and Greco matches and was very successful with it. This tie-up leads to many different attacks which can also be used in MMA easily.
I don’t know where the name, “Japanese Headlock” came from it’s just the only way I’ve ever know it."
