Use Coleman Scott’s Post Double Leg!

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

2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist Coleman Scott baits his opponents into reaching, opening up an opportunity to attack. While the post double isn’t Scott’s go-to move, it’s proven very effective in competition. See for yourself why the post double is a great move to use when hand fighting!

Post Double

Drill Summary: The first thing the wrestler needs to do is bait their opponent into reaching. Scott does this by pulling on the back of his opponent’s head. From there, the opponent is forced to post. When the opponent reaches, the wrestler grabs above the elbow and steps simultaneously. Next, the wrestler brings their hand from the back of the head and reaches outside while the lead knee passes between the opponent’s feet. Then, the hands can lock below the opponent’s butt and the wrestler can fly their knee, block the opponent’s knee and take them down.

Assistant Coach at the University of Indiana, Joe LeBlanc, emphasizes the importance of controlling the opposite arm from one’s dominant lead leg. The ‘2 on 1 Control to Post Double’ starts with controlling the opponent’s right arm and finishing with a double leg takedown.

Post Double

This is a typical penetration step for a left-handed wrestler. From 2 on 1 control, the opponent posts on my head and tries to free his arm. Set the opponent up by circling and giving a pop with my shoulder to get the far leg to step. Next, post at the elbow on the arm posted on my head – AS SOON AS HE STEPS. Finish with an inside penetration step into a double leg takedown.
