Execute an Elbow Pass High Level Single!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Monday, February 1, 2016

Matt Azevedo, Drexel University head coach and U.S. Open Freestyle National Champion, shows you how to perform an elbow pass high level single. Once a wrestler has mastered the elbow pass, they can move on to attacking the legs of the opponent in hopes of getting a takedown.

Elbow Pass High Level Single

Drill Summary: When you’ve mastered the elbow pass, you can use it to get a single leg takedown. Shuffle to the side of your opponent, change your level, pass and sweep in to snag their knee. It’s important to hold onto their elbow with your hand as long as possible. Once you have control of their knee, lift up into them for your single leg.

Use a Snatch Single Leg to Take Your Opponent Down!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, September 1, 2015

East Kansas Wrestling Club head coach, Eric Akin, advises short wrestlers and heavyweights to get a single leg from a higher position on their opponent’s body. This is a great takedown that will allow athletes to control their opponent and advance further on the attack.

Snatch Single Leg

Drill Summary: To execute a snatch single leg, the wrestler must step once and punch twice, then attack the leg from their feet (not their knees). Remember to stay in a stance and keep your head up, or the opponent will have a better chance of escaping. The next step is to pinch the opponent’s leg between your legs and keep your hands down. From there, reach out and grab their other leg and push forward to the mat for a take down.

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, April 1, 2015

2013 U.S. World Team Trials and U.S. Open champion Obe Blanc is one of the best at using single leg takedowns. In this clip, you’ll learn how Blanc gets an across single against his opponents.

Across Single

Drill Summary: To start the move, get the opponent in an elbow tie. From the elbow tie, pull the opponent toward you to get them to step forward. Once the opponent steps, change levels and step toward the opponent’s leg while reaching across the body with your opposite arm and grabbing the opponent’s leg. Meanwhile, pull the opponent’s arm over the top of your body while grabbing their leg. After that, swing around the opponent’s leg and look to shoot your hand outside hand to the mat. From there, keep your head tight to the opponent’s body and drop down to grab their ankle. Next, step up, put the ankle on your knee, let go of the ankle and clamp.
