Score Big Points with a Cradle from the Single Leg!

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

In this clip, 2010 ACC Coach of the Year Steve Garland shows you how to hit a cradle from an inside single leg. As a former ACC Wrestler of the Year, Garland has been able to use the cradle from just about any position, including the offensive neutral position, top position and when an opponent decides to shoot.

Cradle from Head Inside Single

Drill Summary: From the head inside single position, execute a “knockout punch” (throw the arm down) to get the opponent on the mat. Expecting the opponent to come up, the wrestler relocates their grip to the knee. If the opponent stays down, the wrestler drives their knee through the opponent’s face, brings their other hand over the opponent’s head and drops the knee into the cradle.
