Why leg locks are banned

I saw this clip on an Advertisement on  YouTube and thought I would click on it. After watching the partners painful reactions I now know why leg locks, heel hooks and ankle locks are banned in Judo. Enjoy

  1. Leg locks are only really dangerous when either individual isn't experienced enough to fully understand the attack and how to defend. Like any submission technique, they need to be taught and drilled correctly. Straight footlocks are legal for beginners in Brazilian jiu jitsu, kneebars and toeholds for brown belts and above. The heelhook is banned in jiu jitsu competition, but is allowed in the ADCC and it's qualifying tournaments.
