The Straight Ankle Lock is the first leg attack that most instructors will teach to their students.

If you master the Straight Ankle Lock, all other leg attacks will be much easier to learn and transition to, including Heel Hooks, Toe Holds, and Kneebars.

Build a solid defense, and your attacks will flourish.
