    Default Does anyone know what name(s) this move in these wrestling videos is called?

    OK, so I've seen this move in a lot of freestyle/Greco-Roman wrestling (and some high school/secondary school wrestling in Canada), but not a lot in American high school wrestling.

    It's a move that starts with one wrestler underneath wrapping his arms around the triceps/biceps of the wrestler that's on top, then reversing him while locking up both of his opponent's arms with his hands to take him to his back. If you do this move well enough, it's almost a sure pinning combination.

    If anyone doesn't know what I'm talking about, the YouTube videos below show the move that I'm talking about:

    Cory at Waterloo Oxford 2011 - YouTube

    Jafry at Waterloo Oxford 2012 - YouTube


    Has anyone else seen this move? If so, what name (or names) does it go by?

    Thanks.

    it's called a fat man roll. i do it all the time works especially well on the varsity guys that like to body lock and try to move me off my base. there are a couple different variation of this move. you can hit the variations from a few different positions that are actually quite common.

    Hi guys, thanks anyway for your help and for reading my question. I looked through some old wrestling technique books at the library and found out that this move is most often called the double wing lock or the reverse wing lock. It's also simply called the reverse dump, the double arm lock, or the double arm lock with side roll when used as a pinning combination. If this move were taught more often in American youth and high school/college wrestling programs, it might be a good technique to have in a wrestler's arsenal. I think it could be best used to catch a wrestler off guard when he's made a mistake. What do you guys think?

    I used this with a high percentage of pinning especially when I wrestled out of state. It's especially effective against a wrestler who doesn't often sprawl as a first defense for a shot. I often set it up with a "bad" shot with my head between the legs. if you like shooting a double this is a good alternative to a low lift finish.
