It’s often thought that leg locks are the “great equalizer” of the Jiu Jitsu game, and in many ways that’s true. However, using leg locks to level the playing field with bigger and stronger opponents requires not only an aggressive initiative to go for the legs, but a knowledge of how to maximize leverage and force even if your opponent is by far more powerful.
In this article, we’re going to dive into the details of what is now the most powerful leg lock in the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation, the toe hold.
The toe hold is a powerful submission using a ‘kimura’ grip on the opponent’s foot and putting a big torque. We are often taught the technique with emphasis being put on grabbing the the end of the foot and toes. 5x bjj world champ and ADCC champ Braulio Estima shows a couple interesting variations of the toe hold that actually makes it much more powerful.
Braulio grabs the heel and pushes the foot with his own forearm. Bernardo Faria was impressed.
