Fireman’s Carry



The Fireman’s Carry is one of the classic takedowns in wrestling, and for good reason. It provides the opportunity for back points, is extremely hard to defend, and is attacked from a variety of positions.

The key to executing a fireman’s carry is understanding the differences between a carry and a standard leg attack. Concepts such as being “balled up”, “disappearing” and extending to the finish are what make this move a curveball that few wrestlers anticipate.

Master these little twists on the fundamentals and you’ll have the ability to go feet-to-back when your opponent least suspects it.
