obviously you are talking twaddle

the leg is very strong but once it is extended and a kneebar with proper position/technique then its very easy to bust someone's knee. Even with putting them on carefully with relatively little force I have managed to injure someone's knee before - like with an armbar, if you have it in properly then you only need a little amount of pressure and movement to hurt your opponent

why do some bjj guys know so little about leg locks?
