    Between 2,3 I believe the orange guy hardly moved at all. Instead, Tyrone Glover turned his hips and repositioned his hands. I don't know if you can get this usually, since I would expect Mr. Orange to move his leg as soon as you stop pressuring the knee. IMLE, of course.

    Tyrone is a real nice guy. I trained with him a few times and got the pleasure of being submitted via toe hold (although not in the same manner as this picture).

    I saw Tyrone get submitted with a toe hold once in sub grappling. And it's just my opinion, but it seems like after that he's really big on toe holds now.

    Toe holds are great leg subs. You can get them from many different and awkward positions. And once you are locked onto that ankle it's only a matter of time before you submit the guy. Underused subs in my opinion.

    instead of pushing the foot to the butt i pull away against the joint with my body wieght. just like how Tony Cecchine shows on his catch wrestling videos. it has a lot more leverage

    step 4 looks really painful...

    The strong man is not the one who wrestles, but controls himself in a fit of rage.

    prohooker, calm down. I put his name in there because he is the one showing it. and he is a celebrity pro fighter - not because he came up with the technique.

    This is a sweet toe hold, and unlike SOME people say, the finish works great... despite what you would think, either pushing toward the butt or pulling away ala Cechine... the leverage is more than enough to get the tap. Three to be exact lol.
