Position Description

Double Outside Ashi is a leg entanglement with both of your legs over one of theirs. It is a superior grip because you have both legs pinching on one of theirs.

  • Inside leg foot stands on the hip
  • Upper body weight is over the elbow
  • Layover top the submission
  • Eliminate space
  • Go straight ankle to Heel Hook
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.

Opponents Submission Setups

Your opponent will reach back for a Straight Ankle lock or Heel Hook.

Opponents Setups

Your opponent will be looking to stay in Double Ashi or transition to Saddle Position from here so you need to not allow your knee to turn by their doing. You can turn it but watch out for the setup into saddle.

Weight Analysis

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