ARMWRESTLING TECHNIQUES. UNDER-HOOK (LOWER HOOK). ()
UNDER-HOOK (LOWER HOOK).
Before „ready, go!” the left-side opponent places his elbow on the left edge of the front of the elbow-pad. This technique is usually used by fighters using hook, who want to surprise their opponents.
Pull the opponent’s arm with an inward sideways movement, extending the angle between opponent’s arm and forearm.
With the inwards movement, pull the fighting arm’s elbow diagonally across the pad.
In contrast to the outward sideways hook, the fighting arm’s shoulder is not slid towards the grip. After rotating the wrist we pull the opponent’s arm inwards. For this technique to work, you should start with loose fingers. Press on the opponent’s palm with the lower edge of the wrist, while simultaneously pulling to the pad.
