What is the wrestling escape move the Granby Roll called today?

User Avatar
I went to Granby High School in Norfolk, VA. This is where the move originated. As far as I know, it still goes by the name of "The Granby Roll." I was just asking my grandson, who is now into wrestling, if the coach had yet taught him the move. The answer apparently was no. When I wrestled, it was one of my favorite moves & helped me to defeat many opponents. I am now in my mid 50's and am not quite as agile as I was when younger but I am trying to teach the move to my grandson, so that maybe he can show it to his coach and the other wrestlers. Who knows, maybe it will make a comeback? I just completed a high school wrestling career (about to move on to college) during and previous to which I wrestled in NC, KS, AK, SC, OH, etc. The move is still called a "granby roll." Yes, it is still called the granby roll. My coach thought this escape a couple weeks ago to me. The Granby Roll and will always be called the Granby Roll. This move hit quick and hard can be done from the standing, sitting, standup positions and I used it very effectively in high school. Being an escape artist and takedown artist the Granby Roll was unstoppable. You can sit through on the roll hooking your opponents leg and scissor through to a head and arm and in position for a near fall or pin....You don't want to use it in freestyle...I found out the hard way...:) have a great day... Yes, I also know it as a Granby Roll and I am surprised that your grandson has not learned it considering I learned it in the 7th grade.

Why do people wrestle shirtless?

Wrestling is pure entertainment. The selling point of any wrestler is his body. If he will not show his muscles he will not get sold.

Is amateur wrestling dangerous and what are some benefits?

User Avatar
Yes it is in some ways. You can break about any bone in you body, especially you're wrists, ankle, and neck. Additionally, the weight requirement makes wrestlers prone to eating disorders or malnutrition. There are rules in most Highschool and College leagues which attempt to prevent both physical harm and malnutrition, but both still happen occasionally. Wrestling can be said to give many benefits. Unlike pro wrestling, you can go on to be national champion here in the US or you can go and wrestle in tournments in romote countries where wrestling there is as big as baseball or football here. Many CEO's and high level business people say that they owe their work ethic to the rigorous training and maintenance schedule that they learned in Wrestling. Addittionally, the personal nature of the sport as well as the rigorous training required can help build confidence. Wrestling is also one of the cheapest sports, the only required items being wrestling shoes and headgear. This is an economic advantage in comparison with other sports. If you're good enough, you can even qualify in the Olympic Trials to maybe even earn an Olympic Gold Medal.
