Section 1: The Morning Newspaper

The morning newspaper was a position that my friend, Omar Bouiche, used to do. When he would pop up to Knee On Belly, the person on the bottom would shove his knee down and he would backspin over the legs and pull the legs up. This gave him the ability to attack either leg. I used this as a resting place and this created the "hoop". I would put my forearms on my thighs. The joke is that this looks like you are sitting on the toilet, reading the morning newspaper. Of course, today it would be a smart phone or iPad.

Section 2: Shin Locks

Shin Locks are part of catch wrestling. The shin lock was used as a weapon when someone took your back. It was also used when facing an opponent by placing your knee on their shin bone and pulling up on their toes. The shin lock was use as more of a punishment hold than a submission. In the old days, the punishment hold was to get someone who was stalling to move. When they were in a wrestling match, they would go shin on shin or knee on shin, to get the opponent to quit stalling so they could get them to move, turn them, & pin them. Back then, they were going for the pin. Today the goal is the submission.
