Single Leg Finishes


An outside single is one of the most used shots in wrestling, and lifting the leg and going high single is one of the best ways of finishing a takedown. It starts with taking a shot on the right leg with our right hand, or left on left.

Usually, if you ever have an outside single, you try to pick it up. After you have it up high you have good chance of finishing and it's very difficult for even a college level funky wrestler to scramble and defend.

That doesn't mean we won't try to defend. When in this situation, more than any other, it's important to at least go for something. If you don't, you're likely to get taken down anyways. It helps to create a little chaos, and that's what type of scrambling we will induce.
