SHIN WHIZZER COUNTER

SHIN WHIZZER COUNTER

Instructional Video: Shin Whizzer Counter   The first time I encountered this move I was its victim in the national semifinals. It costed me two points. When done perfectly it can pick you up 5 points. Watch this video now so you will at least be aware of it. Give it a try also. It’s […]

PRESSURE

PRESSURE

Pressure is a funny thing. We can feel it before an average match or a national final. In light of the Super Bowl I figured I dedicate a whole post to this topic. Whenever I felt pressure I always thought of the players in the Super Bowl or World Cup Final and realized my pressure […]

DEAN’S BOOK REPORT

DEAN’S BOOK REPORT

The video below is me reading an awesome book report created by Dean Caravela, an 8th grade Caldwell, NJ wrestler. This is the first book report done on Wrestling with Your Destiny that I know of. He was assigned to write as if he was me and did a great job. Craig Hannigan took the liberty […]

I AM A CHAMPION VIDEO

I AM A CHAMPION VIDEO

Thanks to my long time friend Joey Walsh for bringing this video to my attention. A lot of people have seen it already judging from the youtube hits. If you haven’t – watch it. It’s one of those things that might not help you achieve your goals, but it certainly won’t hurt you. Enjoy. I am a […]

LAT DROP

LAT DROP

Instructional Video: Lat Drop A lat drop is one of those fun wrestling moves many young and inexperience wrestlers want to learn first. It’s a flashy move. Typically I shy away from moves like this, but there are exceptions to every rule. A lat drop is one of those exceptions as is an arm spin […]

UNDERHOOK TO KNEETAP

UNDERHOOK TO KNEETAP

Instructional Video: Underhook to Kneetap The underhook to kneetap is a favorite move among many wrestlers. I prefer the underhook to inside single leg but everyone has a different style.

UNDERHOOK TO INSIDE SINGLE

UNDERHOOK TO INSIDE SINGLE

Instructional Blog: Underhook to Inside Single The underhook to an inside single leg was probably my favorite takedown from this position. It is safe and effective, a combination that is always good for wrestling. Drill this move in combination with the Underhook to Outside Single as well as the Underhook to Kneetap. You want to […]

UNDERHOOK TO OUTSIDE SINGLE

UNDERHOOK TO OUTSIDE SINGLE

Instructional Video: Underhook to Outside Single Underhooks are very effective when used correctly. However if you sit there and don’t use the move you will be in trouble. When an opponent tried to stall with an underhook I welcome it and hit my fireman’s carry. Here is one finish that you can use to avoid […]
