Side Control Cradle Outside

Reference: Side Control

Movie of Side Control Cradle Outside.

Fig. 1 Start Fig. 2 Hook Leg

  1. Fig. 1 shows a Cradle with the outside leg held. This is a side control with Uke's hands locked together holding Nage's leg or legs to Nage's head.
  2. In Fig. 2 Nage's free leg locks over Nage's held leg so that Nage can use both legs against Uke's arms.

    Fig. 3 Kick Out Fig. 4 Hook Head

  3. In Fig. 3 Nage kicks out breaking Uke's hand grip. It is important not to over do this. Uke's left arm must stay around Nage's neck. If Uke is holding Judo style where Uke's hands are not locked together these first two steps are not needed. Notice that Nage's hand is pushing Uke's head towards Nage's legs to make it easier for Nage's leg to hook Uke's head. Again, do not over do this. Uke's head needs to be over Nage's chest.
  4. In Fig. 4 Nage's outside leg hooks Uke's head. The tendons on the back of Nage's left leg need to cross Uke's carotid artery to get a good choke so it is important to keep Uke's head over Nage's chest to get the proper leg angle.

    Fig. 5 Triangle

  5. Fig. 5 shows Nage applying a triangle choke to Uke's head and right arm. It is necessary to control both arms so that Uke cannot attack Nage's face or groin.
