i watched the clip of the cobra.. I could not make out what he did.. nor could I on the claf slicer... well I got new moves to ask about in class though.
Here's a simple way to tell what a calf slicer is like (although about a 1,000X less painful)
Get on your knees with your feet behind you almost as though you're posturing in somebody's guard. Take a knuckle, lean back over your right shoulder and place that knuckle on the back of your leg at the low point of where your calf ends. It should be about a 1/2 of the way travelling up from your foot to your knee. Once your knuckle is there dig it deep into the tissue there and feel the pain.
This is basically what someone is doing to you when they put you in a calf slicer. Except instead of a knuckle digging in there it is the blade portion of their shin, and while they're pushing that in they're pulling up on your feet to increase the pressure about a million fold. Calf slicers hurt. like. hell.
