    Default How do you get the half REAL TIGHT?

    Everyone I ask always says my halfs aren't that tight. But one kid I wrestled yanked my neck and got the half soooooo tight that I passed out..

    Afterwards, I was like what the hell? The kid wasn't even strong. Is there like a sweet spot in the arm for the tightest halfs?

    Get the crook of your elbow on the back of his neck, put your nuckles in his chest, get chest to chest and pull his head up. He shouldn't be able to talk.

    Yeah, I do all of those except pull up. Is that the key to it? Cause I do all of the above, except that. And that kid pull my neck the f*** up, and I couldn't breathe. I didn't even want to fight it. I gasped for air and I passed out.

    pull up takes a lot of the fight out of the other guy and makes it tighter. Make sure you have your feet wide apart for that wide base.

    I just tried it against my brother, and I can't seem to get it choking tight. :/ Oh well, maybe it's cause my arms are short or something.

    Has nothing to do w/ your arm length. If you have a coach, they can critique you properly. It's not a choke either.
