Discover John Smith’s Arm Drag Techniques!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, April 1, 2016

Five time NCAA Championship coach at Oklahoma State University, John Smith, explains how you can take advantage of an opponent who reaches after you jab fake. Coach Smith went back to watch old videos and realized how much past wrestlers under-utilized the arm drag, an effective move when done correctly.

Arm Drags

Drill Summary: When you’re jab faking, opponents often want to reach and get into you. When they do, you can get snap down drags to a single leg takedown (low or sweeping) or even a snap down into a double leg if you come across the opponent’s armpit.

Execute an Elbow Pull Double Leg!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, December 1, 2015

University of North Carolina assistant coach and 2012 Olympic bronze medalist, Coleman Scott, runs through the steps he uses to pull off an elbow pull double leg takedown. By using a cheat step, Scott is able to move into the correct distance to pull his opponent over top and finish the move.

Elbow Pull

Drill Summary: The first step of this move is to get your opponent into an elbow lock. Coach Scott actually chooses to grab the opponent under their arm pit as opposed to the elbows. Next, pull the opponent to you and get your head on the opposite side of your elbow lock. Meanwhile, your free hand should be maintaining inside control. After that, you need to take what coach Scott calls a “cheat step,” where you bring your back foot up and square to your lead foot momentarily.

Once your back foot is square, step out with your lead leg and put your head in the hole. Your free hand should shoot out, then you need to pull your opponent over your shoulder with the intent to have both of their hands hit the mat. From there, lock up your double leg and drive through the opponent.

Use Coleman Scott’s Post Double Leg!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, March 1, 2015

2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist Coleman Scott baits his opponents into reaching, opening up an opportunity to attack. While the post double isn’t Scott’s go-to move, it’s proven very effective in competition. See for yourself why the post double is a great move to use when hand fighting!

Post Double

Drill Summary: The first thing the wrestler needs to do is bait their opponent into reaching. Scott does this by pulling on the back of his opponent’s head. From there, the opponent is forced to post. When the opponent reaches, the wrestler grabs above the elbow and steps simultaneously. Next, the wrestler brings their hand from the back of the head and reaches outside while the lead knee passes between the opponent’s feet. Then, the hands can lock below the opponent’s butt and the wrestler can fly their knee, block the opponent’s knee and take them down.
