    As for the toe hold, do you disagree that they're more difficult to finish when the leg is pretty much straight as in the hilarious professional wrestling example? Reasoning?

    Or you can just throw out an appeal to authority and not be helpful, Ronin.
    No your grammar threw me off. I thought you were asking if I agreed with you. So the answer is simply no. That is not even close to the way this should be demonstrated save the fact of using it as an identification drill.

    For shame, FOR SHAME I SAY.......I hope Bas can hear the anguish and penance in my e-tone.

    Anyway, please ignore the cute chicks and just look to the technique and set-up.....

    Omega, what is you opinion on the following standard achillies lock demonstration...

    And Glover's version of the toe hold is undoubtedly nasty....

    I had always been taught that the toe hold is better, more painful at least, when the opponent's leg is bent, is this true?

    Here's a good toe hold finish.....

    First, while the chick's technique is better it still has too many wholes.
    Second, **** Tyrone......(fucker.....)......insert inside joke here.....
    Third, yes that was an excellent toe hold.
    Lastly, yeah, you want the leg bent so you can isolate the foot strength better.

    i've only used the achilles lock to set-up a heel hook. never actually gotten anyone to tap from the achilles crush.

    i tap to them if they're on tight because i'm unlucky enough to have torn ligaments in both my ankles and i don't like the feeling of my ankle popping out of socket. and it hurts for about 3 days afterwards.

    I know I'm not Omega, but I'm going to comment on that ankle lock anyway cause work is slow.

    Everything is ok up until pannel 4.

    Problem 1- Her top leg is too high on the other girls hip. It leaves it open for getting leg locked, she would do better to plant in on the ground or someplace where it's not exposed.

    Problem 2- The leg she has in between girls leg. In pannel 3 she has her tucked in, rather then through the leg in pannel 4. Likewise, it leaves her less vulnerable to getting her own legs attacked.

    Problem 3- WFT is she doing with her arms in the last picture? The way she has her arms figure foured puts alot less pressue on the achiles tendon, she needs to turn the boney part of her wrist into the achilles tendon.

    So, we agree as shown it was completely improper. As I was bringing up earlier, is your issue with mainly how it is presented or with some finer details, e.g. where he's at on the leg? You know, important **** that is actually useful in discussion.

    As for the Angle "toe hold" do you disagree that when your opponent straightens their leg, your chance of success goes down? I brought it up because one of my training partners is quite adept at escaping from toe holds (and heel hooking you back).

    As for Tyronne, my favorite video of him regarding toe holds is on 101 submissions :icon_clow
