Max Broom and the Cross-Face Cradle

Xavier Dokes

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times” – Bruce Lee. Entering his senior year of wrestling, Max Broom is a prime example of this quote. He has honed this one move to near perfection. The cross-face cradle is a pinning move in wrestling that has gotten Broom a lot of wins.
