Additional Information

Head Positioning

You are working to be on the same side as the outside leg so your head will be near the mat.

Leg Positioning

  • Both legs will be over one of their legs with your leg being the bottom leg of the three.
  • Feet can be straight or ideally your bottom foot over top your top foot.
  • Feet can also be both feet on the bottom hip


  • Hide your legs by having your leg on the bottom.


Your “Knee Grip” will need to be tight about their knee pinching in.

Your “Arm Grip” will be on your opponents bottom 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.


Still need information.

Weight Analysis

Your weight needs to be leaning heavily on your bottom leg. You are completely on your side.
