Reach Around
The attacking wrestler in red gains wrist control (obscured by oppoenent). As he pushes his opponent's wrist away from his body he begins the reach with his free hand. The arm quickly reaches in an attempt to capture the far hip.
The attacker utilizes a quick outside step that is very short in distance. He maintains his wrist control on the defender and pulls the wrist down and away from an opponent. The wrist pull should take the opponent to the mat.
The attakcer needs to be prepared to chase his opponent, as he scrambles to avoid being taken down. The reach around is a technique commonly used in Greco-Roman wrestling. The reach around is a great maneuver for hand fighting and fast hands.
