One of the first concepts Garrett covers is how to defend a single leg. First off is your fundamental defensive strategies. He pushes the head, fights the hands, and hip in to his partner. Ultimately he is looking to push his opponent’s head down enough to create the angle you see at the 1:00 minute mark of the video. A key detail Nahshon points out is getting your leg/hamstring on the back of your opponent’s head. This will allow your leg to do the work instead of your arms.
From this advantageous angle, Nahshon locks up brutal font headlock. He makes sure to keep the hands locked towards his partner’s jaw. This allows for not only a good defensive position but also opens the opportunity for offense. Once such opportunity is the cradle. Nahshon shows how he likes to finish from the front headlock by hipping in and eventually collecting the leg for the cradle finish. Now THAT is what you call a slick set up.
