Wrestling Holds That Work
These types of wrestling holds that work are often used during wrestling as submissive holds. Wrestling is considered entertainment and a profession. Many wrestlers go through school to learn these wrestling holds.

- Wrist Look. During the wrist lock the wrestler will grab the wrist and twist it around in circles. This move causes pain to the opponent’s wrist and arm. As the opponents tries to move they will be unable to as their wrist will be locked into place and movement will hurt.
- Triangle Choke Hold. During the triangle chock hold the wrestler will use his legs to encircle his opponents head and one of their arms. The legs are then squeezed together; the opponents head will be dulled during the squeezing.
- Cobra Clutch. This wrestling move is when the wrestler sits on his opponents back and grabs their opponents chin and pulls back the head as far as possible. The cobra clutch puts pressure on the spine and back causing the opponent pain.
- Crossface Chickenwing. The crossface chickenwing is a very painful hold. The wrestler grabs the chin of his opponent while standing behind him. His other arm is used to grab his opponents arm and pull it behind back. The arm is then pulled in one direction and the chin in the opposite.
