Isn’t it the case that when you’re in Side Control, that your training partners often defend by pushing you away from them? Especially if you go for the Crossface.

The leverage generated from this configuration is so impressive that it can deal massive damage to the foot; it can sometimes damage the knee as well. Today we’ll talk about the toe hold and why it is such a great technique to learn.
