How to Do a Hammerlock Wrestling Move

Learn how to do a hammerlock wrestling move from Monster Factory's "Trademark" Tommy Maclin and "Amazing" Mike Spanos in this Howcast video.


My name is Pretty Boy Larry Sharpe. We're still at the Monster Factory. Now, we're going to take you from a Twisting Wrist Lock into a Hammer Lock.

Okay, these guys will lock up in a Referee's Position. Twisting Wrist Lock, now he takes this, he'll break this elbow, stand behind with a Hammer Lock. Guys, if you could turn around a little bit so they can see. Okay, he has the wrist up high. The higher up here he puts the pressure, the more pain is applied to his shoulder joint.

Okay, now that you have his arm behind his back, the palm of his hand is in the middle of his back. You have one hand on the elbow, on the wrist, the other hand up here, pushing up, putting pressure on the elbow and on the shoulder. That is a Hammer Lock.
