Are there any particular steps or strategies to take in order to get a nice deep overhook ... or do I just have to be patient and wait for my opponent to decide he wants an underhook?

I've never done formal wrestling, but have been doing Judo for 10 years. right handed. I have done a fair bit of no-gi ground grappling, and a small amount of no-gi standup grappling, which is what I'm interested in.

I absolutely nailed what we'd call yoko-wakare in Judo. What is it properly called in wrestling? Here is a vid of Shonie Carter teaching it for no-gi.

My problem is the first step, getting a nice neep overhook. I found myself engaged in an awful lot of 'feeling out', 'handfighting' (?), shucking off neck/head grips, etc. Until finally I got lucky, and found myself with a good overhook. Surely there must be a better way?

thanks!

 You can get the overhook/whizzer as a counter to a shot, usually a single leg attempt.  

Ive seen that throw called a "Jap Whizzer" in wrestling, im sure it has other names.

 If you really want an underhook, sometimes a good way is to really fight hard to get an underhook of your own and play off the countering.

I already posted on this in the no gi forum, but honestly, you might as well be asking people "How do I get someone to mount me?"

The whizzer is an excellent offensive tool.

wrestle with your elbows completely away from your ribs and then someone will underhook you and you can overhook them
