    when you sprawl against a double leg, can you reverse him with a cradle like hold? If so. what are the details of making it work? Another question, would you be able to do it against the turtle position?

    I guess you could run a nearside cradle. Anything like that would be easier if you rotate so you're perpendicular to your opponent.

    What he said.

    Why are you looking specifically for the cradle from a sprawl? Lots more to do there - guillotine, anaconda, d'arce, spin for tilts or ankle picks, spin to back take w/ hooks, crossface, etc.

    It depends on the skill level of your opponent. A near side cradle (off a front headlock) is good against even the best of opponents, depending...obviously...

    But newere wrestelrs often fall prey to a far side cradle simply becasue they get bent in half from a solid crossface. Unusual at higher levels but depending on how much better you are than the guy you are up against, it is possible.

    i find it's a great way to secure side mount, so i think it's fine.
