In Japanese, manji-gatame 卍固め, meaning "swastika hold," known in English as "octopus hold," is a wrestling hold resembling a "swastika," manji, due to the placement of the limbs of the wrestler, with all four knees and elbows bent. There are variants, but essentially:

  1. Left arm locks the opponent's right arm.
  2. Left leg wraps around the opponent's neck.
  3. Right leg wraps around the opponent's right leg.
  4. Right elbow held against the opponent's ribs.
