In professional wrestling, a hold is any kind of move used by a performer to stop their opponent from being able to moving. The hold may lead to a submission from the opponent. Some examples of holds are the cloverleaf (a kind of leglock),[1] the keylock (a kind of armlock), and the guillotine choke (a kind of necklock or choke).
