Technique: Sabin Shot Defense #3-Spladle

This is the third and final article in this series on shot defense. And it covers my favorite wrestling move. While you will see me teach this move in the video, my favorite wrestler Nick Simmons is a legend at this move and I recommend you seek him out.

Why Spladle? It works... On like... Everyone. Don't believe me?  Check this out...

This example still hurts. I love Metcalf. But if it works on Metcalf, it works on anyone. I have personally used the move in the MHSAA State Tournament two years in a row, at the NHSCA Nationals to beat a 3x State Champion, against several other high level guys in various tournaments, and in college a few times.

Now in the video, I show this move off probably the worst setup in the world.  One where I step forward with my lead leg and reach with my lead arm in an attempt to bait the guy into shooting on me.  I loved being shot on. But this setup (even though it also worked on several high level guys) isn't a setup that will work for many.  So without further ado...
