Near Fall 3 (Wrestling)

A near fall (near pin) is when both shoulders are held for two seconds within four inches of the mat.

Near fall points are awarded when:

  • The wrestler holds both of his opponent’s shoulders within four inches of the mat for two seconds.
  • The wrestler holds one of his opponent’s shoulders on the mat and also keeps his opponent’s other shoulder at a 45 degree angle to the mat.
  • The wrestler holds his opponent in a high bridge or back on both elbows.
  • If the wrestler on his back gets injured during the period where near fall points are being awarded, another point is tacked on to the points scored from the near fall itself.

NEAR FALL 3 – N3 – 3 points: Awarded after the offensive wrestler holds the defensive wrestler within near fall criteria for five or more seconds in a row ( 5 counts by the referee), instead of the two point near fall. Also awarded when the match is stopped due to the defensive wrestler being injured and/or screaming out to stop the match (unethical unless they are really injured) after being held within two point near fall criteria (2-4 count by the referee), instead of the 2 point near fall. Defense on their Back Longer.
