The Dreaded Toe Hold

Dean Lister Teaches The Inescapable Toe Hold

BJJ meets catch wrestling as Dean Lister explains the finer points of Toe Holds. Great details like;

  • Don’t grip with your thumb (think Kimura grip),
  • Control one of your opponents legs with both of your legs,
  • Don’t let them sit up in the set up

When Bernardo says “I couldn’t see a way to escape from there” you know you’re going to catch a few blue belts with it. This is a great move against someone with a strong guard, especially those who are happy to go to ground and wait for you to come to them. Step in keep them on their back and then try Deans entry to set up a toe hold.
