Use This Sweet Escape From The Honey Hole To Avoid Getting Heel Hooked

There’s a reason the “honey hole” is such a sought-after position in jiu-jitsu. The position opens up a ton of leg lock opportunities, and many top submission grapplers use it to trap their opponents before finishing them off.

In this video, though, BJJ Fanatics Grand Prix winner Kyle Boehm teams up with Bernardo Faria to demonstrate how to escape the honey hole and avoid getting heel hooked. See if these details can help you get back to safety the next time you get trapped in this position.
