Thread: cradle help

    Default cradle help

    Hello. whenever I do the cradle on my opponent when he's sitting out, I put my right arm behind the right side of his neck and my left under his left kneecap, then I roll back. However, when I roll back, he said that I'm not pinning him, I'm pinning myself since the right side of my chest is under the left side of his back. Any tips on how to do this correctly?

    I'm not sure which side your are on and if you are doing a near side or far side cradle, but either way, reach in further with your left arm so that you lock your hands alongside of his jaw.

    When your doing a cradle make sure your out to the side not under him. Put your right knee into his ribs, left leg posts on the floor for a little support if you like, put your temple on his temple, and finally squeeze like hell to make him want to pin himself. lolz

    exactly what wrestling prodigy said, i put my bottom knee in his side below his rib instead, but they both work.

    Something else you can do is take your left leg and use it to pin his right leg to the mat.

    This prevents him from scissoring his legs and using that leverage to break your grip, and if he gets the legs scissored he will break your grip as his two legs are going to be stronger than your two hands.

    As others have said, make sure to keep the right knee in his side.
