The armdrag is a move in which the wrestler uses his or her opponent’s momentum to the opponent’s disadvantage. The wrestler turns the opponent over into the mat by hooking the opponent’s arm. To give the technique more momentum, the wrestler may turn over onto his or her side.
The armdrag can be used as a reversal, but it also can be used to set up a winning combination. For example, if an opponent grabs the wrist of a wrestler who is lying on his back, holding both opponents’ arms, the wrestler lying on his back may use one hand to hook under both opponents’ arms and flip them over him so that they are lying on their backs on top of him with their legs hooked underneath him. This will cause both opponents’ shoulders to be pinned by those of the other opponent beneath them.
Performing an ArmDrag
A maneuver in which the wrestler leverages the momentum of their opponent against them. The wrestler turns the opponent over into the mat by hooking the opponent’s arm. To give the technique more momentum, the wrestler may turn over onto his or her side.
In professional wrestling, armdrag variations are known as a “tag team reversal” when performed by two wrestlers at once. In tag team wrestling, two or more wrestlers stand near each other with their backs facing one another and facing away from their opponents; with both hands on their opponents’ arms, they execute a backflip (sometimes referred to as “clothesline backflip”) while twisting their opponents’ arms around behind them so that they will land face-up. Once they make contact with the ground, they quickly roll forward onto their knees and elbows so as not to allow time for their opponents to recover before taking advantage of any opening that might be created in order to execute a pinfall or submission hold.
Introduction To the Guard Pass
The guard position is one of the most important positions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Other names for it include “guard pass” and “passing guard.” The guard position is a defensive position where an athlete locks the opponent’s body with the legs. The opponent’s legs may also be locked by the grappler. Positions like the half guard and 50/50 guard fall under this category. The guard pass is a technique that takes advantage of this position to sweep or submit their opponent. It requires good timing, reflexes, balance and technical ability. The guard pass is an action that allows a grappler to pass the opponent’s guard and take control of the position. This can be done through a variety of passes, including the butterfly guard pass and the spider guard pass.
A Butterfly Guard Pass
The butterfly guard pass is when one player passes his/her legs around the hips of another player and moves into mount. In this position, one player is upside down and on top of another player. This can be done from top side control but also from back mount or side control.
The spider guard pass is when a player passes his/her legs around an opponent’s body and moves into half guard or side control. The spider guard is an intermediate-level type of pass that allows you to transition from other more basic positions like side control and half guard to more advanced positions like mount or back mount.
