Learn the Techniques to Perform Better Leg Attacks!

Former USA World Team member, Eric Akin, demonstrates finishes from different positions. Here, Akin teaches the young athlete to “run the corner” and attack the far leg to finish a single leg on the mat. In addition, a second drill is for a double leg finish from the knees. 

Leg Attack Finish Drills

The first position has the athlete begin on a single leg in bad position. First, the youth wrestler is to lock his hands around the partner’s knees, “like a rope.” Next, the wrestler will “cork screw” the partner’s far hip to the mat so that he lands with his legs together on his side, “like a mermaid.”
