    Far be it from me to question you about this, but isn't that a bit high risk? You have to have the perfect conditions to be able to pull that off. With a knockout punch, it's much easier to pull off.

    Do a search for "Ernie Shavers" and you'll see what I mean. He could end a fight with one punch, with little conditon of someone leaving themselves open for it. With a spladle, you need a series of mistakes and/or opportunities to get that to work. With a knockout, it's a matter of one punch, which is fairly easy to land.

    Again, far be it from me to question you about this, but I'm, not too far off, am I?

    How many of you coaches have watched your kid take a 10 point lead intothe last minute to get caught in a reverse cradle or headlock ? We had a 126 lber who stuck a 2 x state champ by catching him in a headlock-pure luck-first points Dave Thomas -our kids name had ever scored on Geib from carmel in 5-6 matches . We were al laughing our asses off .
