How to Do a Toe Hold Leg Lock

Learn how to do a toe hold leg lock in this Howcast video about lower body submission techniques for jiu jitsu, judo, sambo, and mma.


Hey, guys. Today I'm going to show you the mechanics on how to do a toe hold. So for instructional purposes only, we're going to start in our partner's guard and the side of the leg that we want to attack, we're going to step that leg up. Notice, I'm going to keep the leg tight to the hip, so he's not able to underhook and I'm going to pull his leg here.

What's going to happen that I'm going to want to come back into a right hand, and I'm going to grab right above his pinkie toe. From there, I'm going to reach around collecting more grip. See how it's turning his butt towards you? I'm going to wrap the twinkies and turn them towards his butt, cause of attack. That's the mechanics of how to do a toe hold.
