camel-toe-hold

with all the half-guard threads going on, here's another...

my secret evil move against bigger guys from the half-guard.

i came up with this after watching clips from Eddie Bravo's Twister and
the move he pulled off in competition called the "Kamakazi leg lock".

I'm not able to do it his way with just the legs so instead...

from the "lockdown" (on their right leg) get underneath and go for the
oldschool sweep. if you get the sweep, great. if they base their left leg
out and you can't reach the foot, curl your body underneath almost like
you're going to go underneath them. use your right leg to bend the
lower portion of their trapped right leg toward their butt, enough so
that you can reach their toes with your right hand. for added pressure,
you can also grab their right shin with your left hand (which is around/
hugging their right thigh). Slowly! Pull their toes toward you and
extend your shin bone into their calf muscle. This move hurts like hell
and is a mix of a calf-crush and a toe-hold. Work this in combination
with the other half-guard sweeps from the lockdown and it's another
weapon to have.

now i'm not sure if this has a name already or if this variation is shown
by Eddie on his DVD, if so i'd like to know. (Maybe it's a Sambo move?)

otherwise i suggest it be called the "Camel-Toe-Hold", or the
"Bravoplata". whichever you prefer.

hope it helps. be careful.

ive pulled off the camel toe hold with about every girl ive ever been with

"use your right leg to bend the lower portion of their trapped right leg toward their butt"

Don't you mean "use your LEFT leg"? Won't you put your right shin in the crook of his knee? Maybe I'm misunderstanding you?

I vote for "camel toe hold" as the name for this move! (Although I'm not sure how the camel fits into the whole picture, i.e. I can't see the camel and I can't see the camel toe! But it sounds funny enough ;) )

hey jonpall,

it is the right leg like i mentioned.

from the lockdown my left (outside) calf is in the crook of their right
knee, my left foot is underneath my right knee, toes flexed, my right
foot is hooking their right foot, toes flexed. i'm on my right hip and
right shoulder.

so when i try to get their toes close enough to grab, i simply bend my
right leg (my right heel toward me). you're kind of scooping their lower
leg toward you with your right calf.

"camel-toe-hold" because of a clip/joke of a drunken Eddie B. from Joe
Rogan's site. Just giving credit where credit is due.

or because it smashes yer junk against their thigh...

"Pull their toes toward you and extend your shin bone into their calf muscle"

Oh, ok, so you're talking about your LEFT shin bone that goes into their calf muscle?

"you're talking about your LEFT shin bone that goes into their calf
muscle?"

yes.
