When to Tap to a Heel Hook

We recently wrote an article about knee injuries in BJJ and one of the most common questions our readers had was “when should I tap to a heel hook?”. Luckily for us, the treasure trove of knowledge that is Lachlan Giles has released an interesting video that answers the question of when to tap to a heel hook.

Giles’ wife, Livia, recently won the 2nd ADCC European trials and in the process, her opponent ended up with a severe knee injury. In this video, Lachlan tactfully breaks down the importance of realizing when you’rein trouble and when to tap.

The Absolute MMA coach advocates to tapping as soon as you realize that you can’t slip the heel and this video give an interesting second-by-second break down of a heel hook and the injury that follows.
