What Is The Definition Of Fleeing A Hold In Wrestling?
1. This is a term used in wrestling to describe when an athlete openly avoids making contact in order to prevent their opponent from getting a hold. It is up to the referee to monitor this and to make sure that either wrestler does not commit this infraction, and if they do, the referee can then issue a caution. If the fleeing is severe or occurs often, points may be awarded to the opponent. In addition, if a player receives three cautions in one match, they will be disqualified.
