Single Leg X, Standard Ashi, Ashi
The ashi garami is a leg entanglement with your inside knee over and your outside leg under one of theirs. The trapped heel is on the outside of your body. It is a superior grip because you have both legs pinching on one of theirs. Essentially it is Single Leg X on the ground with your foot in between theirs.
- Upper body weight is over the elbow or hand
- Layover top the submission
- Eliminate space
- Try to keep your butt tight to theirs
- Double Outside Ashi -> Butterfly Ashi -> Ashi -> X Guard -> Switch Sides
- Ashi Garami to Game Over
- Ashi Garami to Double Ashi
- Craig Jones Heel Hook Defense (Risky Ask for me to explain before you try)
- Ashi straight ankle defense
- Toes point to the mat
- Stand up
- Come under the ankle ;wrist on toes twist
Position Defense ( if opponent tries to pull Ashi)
- Ankle Lock to Heel Hook
Opponents Submission Setups
- Opponent Dropping back from your open guard into Ashi
- Outside Linn Lock
Opponents Sweeps Setups
- Your opponent will be looking to pop over your inside leg to transition to the mount position from here so you need to not allow your knee to be compromised by keeping it in their thighs and not allowing them to get control of your head or arm. Try to stay on your strong side meaning your outside leg on the bottom. They will try to get you to the other side so they can hop over the inside leg.
- You are working to be on the same side as the outside leg so your head will be near the mat.
- Your outside leg goes over their leg and the heel goes to the hip
- Your inside leg goes under their inside of the non-trapped leg and you have the option of also pinching on the trapped leg but this will allow them to come up easier.
- Hide your inside foot by having under their far leg or under their butt.
- Your “Knee Grip” will not be as tight due to extending your inside leg to their leg but it should still be tight.
- Your “Arm Grip” will be on your opponent’s outside leg ankle.
- As with most leg lock positions you are looking to stay close. With your butt scooting close to their butt. Trying to keep your arms and head out of their reach.
- Your weight needs to be extending on the inside leg. Leaning on your inside arm. You are usually sitting up or on your side.
Ideal Body Type
- Works for all body types
- The outside leg on the hip keeping them from coming up
