Counter Opponents Who Have Inside Control!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Thursday, October 1, 2015

Russ Cozart, head coach at Brandon High School in Florida, shows how to execute the “Two-on-One,” an effective move for stopping opponents who are good at inside control. By neutralizing aggressive opponents who maintain inside control, you will have a better chance of winning the match.

Two-on-One

Drill Summary: Wrestlers pair up and begin folk style pummeling. On the coach’s command, one of the wrestlers goes for a two-on-1 by getting elbow control, sliding their hand up and grabbing the opponent’s wrist with their other hand. From there, Coach Cozart likes to teach his wrestlers to get a single leg on the same side.
