Tag Archives: Heel Hooks

The heel hook has a potent and injurious history as a submission hold. A fighter executes it when he secures his supine opponent's heel underneath his armpit while trapping the leg of the secured heel between his legs. From this position, the fighter rotates the heel outward (clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on which foot is secured) to torque the knee for a submission or to break it. It can be applied on the same side or from the opposite side; the opposite side is known as the "reverse" heel hook.
