WRESTLING HOLD — LOHAN TAKING NOON NAP
Lohan Taking Noon Nap
After taking his opponent onto the floor, a wrestler uses various holds to pin him. Wrestling holds are another indication that wrestling is a sport. In a real fight if a wrestle could hold his opponent on the floor, he would have broken his opponent's arm or neck, or choke him to death. These, of course, are not allowed in wrestling rules.
Be careful when you hold your training partner on the floor. Your body weight on his chest might stop his breathing and kill him accidentally. Take note of his face. When it turns red, release your hold to let him breathe. In Shaolin Kungfu, this wrestling hold can be effected with the pattern “Lohan Taking a Noon Nap” (“Lor Hon Ng Sui”).
