You increase your offensive capabilities, while limiting your opponent's attacks, by putting yourself in an advantageous position within the tie.

Coach Goldman teaches you several attacks from the over/under tie after advantage has been secured. He begins with a segment on turning the over/under into an underhook and a wrist combination. From this position, he shows a series of moves, including: arm drags, single and double leg takedowns, foot sweeps, throw-bys, inside and outside trips, ankle picks and throws. He then moves into the over/under.
He demonstrates how to gain the upper hand in this position and then he shows how to create scoring opportunities with a variety of setups that will lead to more leg attacks, body locks, headlocks, front headlocks and arm spins and throws, just to name a few.
Finally, Coach Goldman goes over defensive strategies when your opponent is attacking you from the over/under position. He teaches a variety of counters that will give you the confidence to stop your opponent's attacks and enable you to set up your offense and score on your opponent.
