DRILLING FOR WRESTLING 2

DRILLING FOR WRESTLING 2

Instruction Video: Drilling for Wrestling In one of my first posts over a year ago now (crazy how fast time goes by) I wrote about Drilling for Wrestling. In this video below I wanted to show the proper way to drill. If you focus on only one thing this off-season make sure it’s how to […]

HALF ROLL

HALF ROLL

Instructional Video: Half Roll I was never one to dominate from the top position. I had a few moves that worked for me in high school and college and I stuck with them, eventually earning a riding point in three-quarters of my matches in my final season. Knowing that top is my weakest position I […]

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 […]

HIGH SINGLE LEG FINISHES

HIGH SINGLE LEG FINISHES

Instruction Video: High Single Leg Finishes   These single leg finishes work in conjunction with the single leg finishes shown in this May 2011 blog post. If running the pipe failed me I went straight to the finishes in the post followed by the finishes shown below. If I was in a tight spot and […]

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. See which move you like better and go from there. Wrestling is all about finding the moves that work for you the best and then […]

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 […]

DOUBLE LEG ALTERNATE FINISH

DOUBLE LEG ALTERNATE FINISH

Instructional Video: Double Leg Alternate Finish This double leg alternate finish is great against virtually every opponent. It is rarely used, very effective, and extremely hard to counter. It works well against stronger opponents, lankier opponents, shorter opponents and everyone in between. The key is turning your opponent’s knee towards the mat as you spin […]

SLIDE ESCAPE

SLIDE ESCAPE

Instructional Video: Slide Escape The slide escape is a great way to get off your stomach without exposing yourself and giving your opponent too many openings. It is also one of the rare moves in wrestling that will probably work the first or second time you try it, without constant drilling. If that isn’t the […]
