Underhook Position Basic Setup Elbow Pop

The underhook position can be used to control your opponent and set up many different takedowns. Securing the underhook position can occur from a variety of pummeling situations. Properly controlling an underhook will put your opponent on the defensive as well as set up multiple offensive takedown opportunities. For this video, 6x National Champion and US Olympic Wrestler Heath Sims demonstrates a setup to secure the underhook by popping the elbow of a reaching opponent.
