A good combination of pressure, position, and technique will allow you to put an opponent in position to be attacked.

Set up is KEY. Great wrestlers can “feel” these coming!
Baby Lat pull gets him off balance, hook his knee so he’ll step back...which puts him in position to get launched.
With my lateral you want to turn your left foot sideways and “trip” opponents foot while launching him.
Keep your opponents arm during finish.
