Wrestling. A hold in which both arms are passed under an opponent\'s arms from behind and the hands or wrists are clasped on the back of the opponent\'s neck (usu. double nelson, full nelson), or in which one arm is thrust under the opponent\'s corresponding arm and the hand placed on the back of the opponent\'s neck (usu. half nelson).
