I think you need to think about what you want to achieve a bit harder:

All the commits in any Git repository form one or more (directed,
acyclic) graphs, and a commit is said to exist in a repository only if
it is referenced, directly or indirectly, by one of entry points to
those graphs. Entry points are branches and tags, so to have a
repository with the single existing commit you have to make sure all
the branches and tags existing in that repository point to that single
If, instead, you wanted to reset just a single branch to contain just
that commit, you just do use `git reset` to make that branch point to
