The single leg is the number one takedown in the world and is used by wrestlers at all levels, but to execute it effectively, it is necessary to learn the proper mechanics of the move. In this video, Obe Blanc teaches the mechanics of this safe, high-percentage move that helped him become one of the best wrestlers in the world.
The mechanics of the single begin with solid set-ups. You will learn how to bait your opponents into stepping into your single-leg trap and before they know it, you will have secured their leg on your way to another takedown. Blanc gives you the subtle positioning tips for hand, head, and knee placement for various single leg attacks. You will learn how to attack the single leg by using the wrist roll, elbow control and inside control, which will get your opponent in position for attack.
From set-up to attack, Blanc gives you a variety of shots. He demonstrates the cross leg, sweep (or swing) single, and a low level single, as well as folkstyle and freestyle finishes to each single attack. While working through the techniques Blanc takes care to emphasize the footwork that is often times overlooked. Having multiple attacks provides more opportunities to secure your opponent's leg.
Once you have the leg secured, you have to know how to finish your single-leg attack. Blanc shows you multiple finishes in a variety of situations and predicaments you might encounter after shooting your single leg. The finishes he covers include shelving, running the pike and posting. Each opponent reacts differently to an attack and knowing several finishes will give you the ability to neutralize your opponent's counters.
As an added bonus, you will learn how to get out of bad positions. Blanc troubleshoots many of the positions that cause wrestler the most problem. All wrestlers find themselves in bad positions, but knowledgeable wrestlers know what to do to get out of these positions and turn them into scoring opportunities. No longer will you have to guess what to do when your opponent counters your single. Whether on your feet or on the mat, you will have the tools to finish and secure the takedown.
Whether every shot you take is perfect or you often scramble to score from bad positions, you can score more and win more. The techniques provided by Obe will help you to find the improvement you seek.
