Wrestling Finishing Maneuvers
Wrestling is one of the world’s oldest sports, with its origins being traced back to the ancient Greeks and the first Olympiad. It uses grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other holds. A wrestling bout is a physical competition, between two competitors or sparring partners, who attempt to gain and maintain a superior position. It has become a popular sport in High Schools around the country and if played well, it can result in scholarships.
So it is of great advantage to have your young athlete learn the skills necessary to excel in extracurricular activities. There are several sources to find helpful information about wrestling moves. For example, the Nelson Hold is a grappling hold which is executed from the backside of the opponent. One or both arms are used to encircle the opponent’s arm under the armpit, and secured at the opponent’s neck.
