How to set up The Figure 4 Toehold?

The steps for performing the Figure 4 Toehold are as follows:

  1. Secure your opponent's leg: Begin by using your arms or legs to control your opponent's leg. This can be done from a variety of positions, including guard, half-guard, and side control.

  2. Trap the foot: Use your legs to trap the foot of your opponent between your thighs.

  3. Make a figure 4: Cross one foot over the other to make a figure 4 position. The foot of your opponent should be in the crook of your crossed ankle.
