As wrestlers progress to higher levels, it becomes more and more important for them to ride and control their opponents while opening up scoring opportunities for themselves. Using safe rides and series from the top position pays large dividends as opponents improve.
The near wrist ride opens up many scoring opportunities, while enabling the top wrestler to wear out the bottom man and control the flow of the match.
Key points in the series include maintaining forward pressure, controlling wrists, pinning the far shoulder, and reading what techniques your opponent gives you. The near wrist ride is a great technique for learning fundamental skills and how to dominate a match.
