Lesson 43: Primary Counter (Ch6.1: Straight Foot Locks)   
When you’re on the bottom of the open guard, your foot is in danger. If you focus too much on defending the foot lock, then your guard will get passed. If you focus too much on preventing the pass, your foot will get caught. In this lesson we will discuss the three most important Straight Foot Lock counters so that you can stay safe while working your open guard.

Ryron and Rener Gracie
  Ryron and Rener Gracie are the eldest grandsons of Grand Master Helio Gracie, the creator of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Their father is Rorion Gracie, one of the world’s foremost experts in self-defense. In 1993, Rorion created the Ultimate Fighting Championship to showcase the supremacy of the family’s self-defense system in a realistic “no holds barred” confrontation against all comers. Rorion’s younger brother, Royce, won 3 of the first 4 UFC tournaments proving that the leverage-based techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu provided the most reliable way to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. Ryron and Rener were born into this family tradition of testing the art against all challengers.
