    Coloured belts get DQ'd for it because refs don't recognise the position, you can't meaningfully slicer from there.

    You're using "straight" and "twisting" in a way I'm not familiar with here. Toe holds are a twisting leg lock, they cause the leg to twist in the normal meaning of the word? What's the modification that makes it IBJJF illegal?

    Anytime you have the arm isolated in that position, you can apply a slicer. Thats why they're getting DQed.

    Toe holds are a straight leg lock by default. They pressure down on the ankle and pop the joint. Twisting leg locks tend to target the knee. If you take the toe hold and start steering their legs to the inside, it turns it into a twisting toe hold which will tear their knee in addition to popping the ankle. You can also reverse the grip and twist to the leg to the outside, it will pop the knee instead of the ankle.

    Agreed. People should specify: twisting of the ankle vs the knee. These two are often intertwined, but as an example one can put a straight achilles lock that twists the knee, etc. BTW, a good "straight" achilles does actually involve a twist of the ankle. So, for my money all good leg locks (ankle, knee, and hip) involve twisting.

    Toe holds twist neither ankle nor knee. They hyperextend the joint, as opposed to over-rotating it. Hence being a straight leg lock. On the other hand, when you put some torque into it and start turning the foot instead of using the simple figure four grip, it targets just the knee with a twisting lock, with a straight ankle attack at the ankle.

    Old man comment still stands, gramps.

    Oh and to add something of value. I like the "reverse rnc" grip rather than the same side RNC grip on the ankle. I feel like they can spin out easier.

    I'm gonna try for it this weekend at a comp in the opportunity presents itself.

The OP video has same side grip which applies less pressure and IMO is easier to defend. Far side grip applies WAY more pressure on the foot/ankle. I definitely grab it during knee shields, scissor sweeps or when folks post their foot on my hips. Or, in some cases when my achilles lock (top side, with reap of course) is not working, I can hip out slightly to make room to come in with the far side RNC type grip.
    (from the bolded above) I'd actually missed that in the original video as I had learnt the move from the vid series that Zap linked the first one of.

    I definitely prefer the far side arm coming beneath the leg as it helps draw the leg/foot into you for better control and higher percentage of finishing; where as if I use the same side, I find it's easier for my parter to rotate their foot out and if it's in a scramble sometimes I can knock it to the side if I'm over eager missing my attack opportunity.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    .

    Ahhh...I beg to differ. Toe holds can be done to act as a straight ankle lock (but those are not the best variants). They are indeed intended to be a twisting lock of the ankle. A good toehold with good leg control does not attack the knee in the same way a heel hook does for example. In fact, just about every toehold injury I have ever seen is an ankle injury (over rotation), not a knee injury. Kind of shocked to see you advocate the opposite. The best toeholds provide torque on the ankle.

    I just lost an ankle lock battle a few months ago where the guy popped it solid. I felt the figure four grip do the trick. The rotation was used to cut a nice angle, but I didn't feel any twisting damage. Just a straight pop akin to achilles.
