    Default Leg shot defense whizzer

    What do you do once you get it and what are some moves from it? How does it rank as level of effectiveness compared to other defenses?

    The whizzer should be used along side other defenses (stuffing the head, hipping out, etc..) depending upon the position you get in. It's as good a defense as any.

    Here are a few videos using the whizzer in different positions.

    A whizzer is a great defensive move, but once it's in, apply pressure to use it offensively. Hip into your opponent and force the whizzer down and forward. Also, keep your elevation higher than his and keep your head up or he'll hit a head chancery on you. From there, there are many things you can do. One is to grab his far tricep with your other hand, hip hard into him, pull the tricep toward you and put him to his back. Another is to force the whizzer down and when he tries to come up, step across the front with your non-whizzer leg, whip your other arm across his chest and push him over to his back (we call this a pancake).

    I didn't watch the videos - these moves may be in them.

    The first method you mentioned about grabbing his far tricep and putting your hips hard into him is one of my favorites to do!

    Watch out when whizzering good kids. Very easy to take you to your back if you whizzer someone. But the move is not well known at all and you are unlikely to see it. But could cost you in a big match.

    My favorite move from the Whizzer (after stuffing the head and forcing his shoulder down with the leverage) is to step back with the free leg and using your non whizzer arm, go behind the knee and between his legs, grab your wrist, and put him straight on his back for a ball and chain tilt.
