Oklahoma State Assistant Coach, Zack Esposito, demonstrates perhaps the most reliable pinning combination from the near wrist in this segment. He will also provide you with tips on how to prevent your opponent from bridging.
He starts by prying down on the shoulder through a “preacher curl” motion on the arm. When a gap is created using this pry, he shoots the outside arm between the body and the arm, shoulder deep and sinks a deep half nelson control on the opponent’s head – this is the snake/cement job/double trouble. Coach Esposito finishes the hold with a hip check to keep the man flat and turns him over to his back.

In this segment, former NCAA Champion at Oklahoma State, Zach Esposito, demonstrates the finer points of his spiral ride. The goal of the ride is to get as much weight on top as possible. The success of the ride is essential because the bottom man must be kept on the mat and controlled before the top man can work for a fall.
To gain an edge on inside position, Zach begins with a reverse cup on the elbow and begins to put weight on the opponent before the start, he puts as much chest pressure on the opponent’s back as allowable. Notice that Zach is off of his knees and his head is on the far side as he drives with the legs and applies pressure with the shoulders.

Defense is essential to be successful at any level of wrestling. Three-time NCAA Champion, Eric Guerrero, teaches you how to stop your opponent’s double leg and also counter attack from this position.
Instruction: From a double leg attack by the opponent, Coach Guerrero sprawls and locks a front chest lock. From this position, post the opponent’s knees to stop him from getting his hips in and back straight. Next, work to go behind by blocking one arm with your outside knee. Once the arm is blocked, finish the go behind.
