    Default How to block/counter the russian arm series?

    I was wrestling this guy and he likes to do a russian 2-on-1 underarm throw. I was wondering if there was a russian arm series and how do you block/counter the russian 2-on-1 underarm throw?

    Reach across his body and grab the arm that he doesn't have the russian on you with, then pull him tight into you.

    This is called "covering the russian" and it basically limits anything he can do, he can either stand there with you in that same position or he can let the russian go and try to work something else.

    DO NOT post on his head.

    No.

    If he has your right arm you reach across his body with your left arm, grab his right arm, and then pull him in so his shoulders are square with yours.

    You're grabbing the arm thats furthest away from you.

    oh. i wouldn't think to pull him into me because he has to be in close to hit the throw in the first place. well thanks.

    He won't be able to hit the throw because by having a good hold of his far arm you're controlling his upper body.

    Like Jensen said take the far elbow and pull it to you, but be careful of him releasing to a body lock and quarter stepping you

    for some reason my edit button isn't loading up.....

    anyway, is there like a certain part of the arm i grab? (like the bicep or the wrist or something?) Or do I actually just grab the arm?
