Improve Your Defense with a 2008 Olympian!

Check out five ways to defend against the leg ride with former All-American Wrestler at Missouri, Ben Askren. The first three defenses he shows lead to pins. The last two defenses are basic leg ride defenses that lead to reversals. Frustrate the opposition with these first-class moves.


They all come from a position where you have to sit low and wrestle from a tight ball position. He emphasizes being in good position and attacking the head. The third defense is a counter to a power half. These are great defenses to leg rides that lead to offensive points.
