Coach John Smith of Oklahoma State University believes a good defense will lead to a potent offense. The theme of his defense is a strong head, hand and hip pressure. In this segment, Coach Smith demonstrates a go behind from the chest lock.
From the front chest lock, one must bring the opponent’s elbow to the mat using a forearm block, then the long arm moves toward the side to be blocked, the forearm goes to the tricep to bring the opponent down to his elbow. Next, step around to beat the elbow on the opposite side. Reach for the hip on that side. To finish the go behind, bring the other leg around, behind his elbows.
