The Klingman Toe Hold

This shooter hold was developed by Otis Klingman. It can easily snap the Tibbia and the Fibia
bone in your calf at the same time. In the late 1940's in a territorial war, Otis Klingman broke
Apache Craig's leg in a shoot for the city of El-Paso.


Surfboard Ride

The surfboard ride was used by Bob Geigel to gain riding time on his way to the Big Ten amateur
wrestling championships in 1948. There is a leg grapevine on my arm in the back inseen on camera.


Fireman's Carriage

Made famous in the pro-wrestling ranks by Kurt Angle who learned the professional version
from me in the days of the WWF Funking Dojo. It is a signature move of all trainees of the
Funking Conservatory.
