Wrestling With Biomechanics: Underhook

In by adminLeave a Comment

Hey y’all! Great to be back on the wrestling with biomechanics series. We are discussing the underhook today. Such a useful tool, in wrestling for takedowns, control on the cage, and escaping in BJJ! This is a foundational move to master in your grappling practice. We make our way through technical and tactical points, highlighting the benefits in folkstyle wrestling and cage wrestling. We then talk about training the shoulder to and neck complex to strengthen the general qualities that can lead to excellent execution of this position. One take home message of this podcast is to be intentional with your positioning. Get an underhook and use it with purpose.
