The Head Chancery
In Catch Wrestling the choke is banned so the head hold or chancery is a modified version which does not choke but cranks the head or just holds it as you work for another technique or position.


The above picture shows a basic chancery hold. The key thing to remeber is that a chancery is any kind of head hold or crank so experiment with a few. The arm is looped around the head and turns is sideways which puts pressure on the neck. The 'free' arm is used to secure the hold or is also used to work for another hold or variation. Below is one of my favourite. Its the Head Chancery with Bar Hold.


Train hard but have fun!
