General Discussion / Brace for elbow dislocation
« Last post by 210edmendoza on Today at 02:08:46 PM »
Has anyone here ever dislocated an elbow and then wrestled with a brace? I'm trying to find the best elbow brace out there that will protect with the least amount of hindrance! If you have any thoughts please share!

Is San Antonio's new Cornerstone Christian school about to break the ice by becoming a boarding school offering wrestling here in the Lone Star state?

Stay tuned!   8)
This was another one that was a little iffy in the beginning but is getting called better now.  The one thing I can say on this is this is not a step out rule, but it is being called that way by some officials, but not all officials.  Many of them are understanding the aciton part of the rule.  We had a match where there was a flurry.  OUr back ended out to the line.  A fake made us sprawl taking us out of bounds and we followed it up with an immediate reshot to a deep single leg.  Match was stopped for stalling and we didn't get to finish that takedown.  My argument here is the rule is intended to make action happen.  My wrestler knew he was going to get called if he didn't come back in, so the rule did what it was suppose to do.  It made action happen.  Then the official stopped the action.  And I got my warning for the day.  Which is fine.  I will take a warning for something like that and then I will be good the rest of the day.  Every step out is not stalling.  We had another one where a wrestler blast doubled us and took us 15 feet outside of the boundary.  That was definitely acton and we got called for stalling   This is being called better, but defining what is aciton and what istalling will improve the consistency of the call.

here is the easy call.

this has been called a lot better.  Everyone was wandering in the beginning and there was a lot of inconsistency.  but I feel we are coming together on this one.  I don't think it ever intended to change wresting.  It just intended to not even let that traditional backbow as used in college wrestling even begin to happen.

The new backbow rule does not and is not intended to expand to other techniques such as an inside turk, crotch lift or leg whip.   The situations that the new rule does apply to would be those traditional to a backbow (prone/parallel to the bottom wrestler vs perpendicular).  Please refer to picture #83, page 77 in the 2018-19 NFHS rule book for an illustration of the backbow application.  Any action from the position shown in picture #83 (prone/parallel position of offensive wrestler to defensive wrestler) that uses the offensive's wrestler's body acts as a fulcrum when reaching back, grabbing the foot/ankle/knee consistent with the initial action of the backbow move would be considered at minimum potentially dangerous, if not illegal.  Additional information has been shared on a state level with each of the wrestling official chapter across the state on this.
