Work Around Great Leg Defense After an Elbow Pass!

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

Struggling to attack with no obvious opportunities at the opponent’s legs? Try out these techniques from Drexel University head coach Matt Azevedo that will create chances to go on the offensive.

No Leg Attack Option

Drill Summary: When you have the elbow pass and the opponent drops their hands to the mat and circles around, coach Azevedo teaches that wrestlers can look for the snap down. If the opponent doesn’t drop the hands but stays low, the wrestler can fake the shot first before the snap down. If the opponent stays up on the fake, the wrestler can go from the elbow pass to other tie-ups.
