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.”
