I've seen and used some leg locks in BJJ, but I've never seen someone use them as often or as effectively as Ken Shamrock (including the Gracies.) What style of grappling does he use? The setups don't look like BJJ or Judo. I want to add some of those techniques to my game.

I found something online that surprised the hell out of me. It seems most of Ken Shamrock's leg locks aren't real martial arts techniques at all. They were coriographed by the writers of the WWF. Somehow Shamrock modified them into working submission techniques.
