    If you look at the beginning of the video again you can see that he catches the other guy taking a BIG step and almost crossing his feet. Anytime you can get your opponent to take a big step like that you should be able to capitalize on it with some sort of leg attack.

    90% of my ankle picks happened pretty much like Russell's. As Snackem says, you can force down on the guys head and plant the foot you're targeting if you get the guy taking a big step, or even if he is predictable in the way he moves his feet. Learn a good duck-under also. If someone is trying to avoid your ankle pick, you should be able to nail a duck-under, and vice-versa.

    I did things opposite of Flop, I LOVED the duck under and found guys trying to block that but this would leave them open to ankle picks. Normally when I got one it was from a tie as well, though I normally wrestled from that position.
