In Japanese, manji-gatame 卍固め, meaning "swastika hold," known in English as "octopus hold," is a wrestling hold resembling a "swastika," manji 卍, due to the placement of the limbs of the wrestler, with all four knees and elbows bent. There are variants, but essentially:
- Left arm locks the opponent's right arm.
- Left leg wraps around the opponent's neck.
- Right leg wraps around the opponent's right leg.
- Right elbow held against the opponent's ribs.
