Where Dedicated Wrestlers Become Champions


Instructional Video Blog: Run the Pipe

Run the pipe is one of the first finishes you learn from a single leg takedown. It is very basic and highly effective when done correctly. Unfortunately, many people consistently run the pipe wrong and many others don’t even bother to try it anymore.

Check out this video to see if you grasp it:

Run the Pipe Key Points:

-Keep your forehead in his ribs the entire time. If you swing your head away from his body you are doing the move incorrectly.

-Your shoulder has to be positioned above his knee.

-Step with one foot, then step with the other, squat down and apply pressure above his knee with your shoulder as you squat down. Step, step, squat.

Grip When You Run the Pipe:

Don’t give up on it, if it doesn’t work at first. As in all of wrestling you have to drill it many times as DRILLING FOR WRESTLING pointed out. If you do practice it enough, it could end up being one of the safest, most effective, and most used single leg finishes in your arsenal.

As always if there is anything you need more clarification on when you are trying to learn the run the pipe finish, don’t hesitate to ask.

    the head. The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

      “É precisamente a via conjunta de estudo da memória nacional e das feridas históricas que consegue ajudar-nos a evitar incompreensões sem saída e ajustes de contas eternos, interpretações primitivas da divisão dos povos em justos e culpados, como tentam fazer, por vezes, politiqueiros sujos”Eis uma frase adequada a alguns dos blogueiros russófobos do que participam no DaRussia…

      Godt at du fik dine hvepse væk, jeg ved dog at det ikke er lige let for alle. Hvis du er allergisk for hvepse, hvorfor hyrede du så ikke et professionelt firma, som kunne fjerne det slemme, slemme hvepse ?

      Nolan Sister I agree honey – the market for mediocrity is always the biggest market there is. The fact that she’s shit is one of the reasons I used to love her, but now I find she believes the hype, which is never attractive in a person.VA:F [1.9.22_1171]

      Sometimes even when you've destroyed the nerdy pics from high school you discover TO YOUR HORROR that a barely remembered Facebook friend has posted pictures from high school THAT INCLUDE YOU…AND POST THEM FOR EVERYONE/ALL TO SEE. People who only know the better, current, older YOU NOW CAN SEE YOU when you were a young nerd.I mean. I'm just saying…I think I read about this happening to someone else….
