Matt Azevedo, 2008 U.S. National Freestyle Champion, shows you how to perform a head pull to an inside step high crotch. You will learn arm positioning is essential to make this move the most effective and avoid getting the inside tie underhooked.
Azevedo sets up this high crotch attack with a head pull down, level change and a back pedal. As he pulls down and back pedals, he sets his feet to shoot. As the opponent pulls up, he steps in and attacks the inside step high crotch. Finish the shot by driving across to a double leg position.
Matt Azevedo is a 2008 U.S. National Freestyle Champion and he demonstrates the head pull down and circle set up for a single leg. Azevedo emphasizes pulling, level changing, and setting the feet at the same time prior to the leg attack.
After securing the inside tie with his trail leg hand, he circles away from the leg he wants and pulls down on the head. It is essential on the head pull that the wrestler change levels with his opponent and immediately attack a single leg.
