Arm Drag Takedown

The arm drag takedown is one of the best and most basic in wrestling. Mastering this technique teaches wrestlers the fundamental skill of keeping their arms short, and shows them how to punish those who don’t!

Key elements to the arm drag series are controlling wrists, establishing head position, and forcing your opponent to pressure into you. Once these elements are in place, you are in position to score a takedown with essentially no risk!

In addition to being safe and easy, the arm drag promotes chain wrestling! An arm drag can he used to set up a lift and return, or even a leg attack such as a single leg. Drill this technique, and you’ll have a lot of easy takedowns falling in your lap!
