Wrestling: Running the Pipe Finish of Single Leg Takedown


Today, this technique shows you how to finish a single leg takedown on an opponent who maintains a good posture on you while you are trying to put him down. It's is essentially wrestling 101, and the move is called "Running the Pipe."

The great part about this move is that it allows you to take full advantage of how the opponent might defend against a plain vanilla single leg takedown by splitting his leg apart to crumble his base.

I'd explain it better, but this page from theMat.com does a great job with pictures:
