There are many ways to defend from a single leg attack. Today’s technique focuses on countering your opponent from the standing single leg position and ending up scoring points from that position. Pay close attention to Erkin’s hand placement as he secures this move. He does a good job of basically grabbing a two on one while his opponent is controlling his leg. This is a great defensive technique, especially if you need to score multiple points at the end of a match that you might be losing.
We are very fortunate to have Erkin as a coach. He grew up in his native Uzbekistan and trained under some of the top talent and training programs from the former Soviet Union, a country that was known for their dominance in the sport of wrestling. Even today the countries that used to make up the Soviet Union are still very successful in the sport of wrestling at the Olympic and World Championship level.
Feel free to stop by during a practice to learn more great technique and prepare to be a wrestling champion.
