Do you prefer to grab your foot or your shin? I used to be a foot grabber, but once I was told to grab my shin instead, for among other reasons you don't put any stress on your ankle while training at Brujo, I really grew fond of the shin grab instead of the foot.

All shin, all the time.
it lets me create a 'landing pad' for my other leg that's on my shin, instead of my foot.

and ankles flex, shins don't.

EDIT - and it also lets me get really tight control of the head and arm for breaking posture, while making a solid frame to help with walking my hips out and blocking the stack.

Agree with those above, I always grab my shin- preferably inside of where my other leg is going to hook over.
