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 […]

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 […]

A great group of guys and girls that are going to do big things in New York City and the state this year. Good luck and keep working […]

SINGLE TO DOUBLE

SINGLE TO DOUBLE

Instructional Video: Single to Double The video below is the next move you would go to if the single to limp arm does not work for you. With the single to double you have to use your opponent’s momentum. This move will take a decent amount of practice as do all of the moves where timing is […]

LIMP ARM

LIMP ARM

Instructional Video: Limp Arm As promised in the previous post on Friday, here is the video blog solely on the limp arm. The move is used in a few different situations on the mat. If you want to be successful on the highest level it is something you are going to have to know how to […]

SINGLE LEG TO LIMP ARM

SINGLE LEG TO LIMP ARM

INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO BLOG: SINGLE TO LIMP This video shows the importance of chain wrestling or going from one move to the next to the next, as did the previous post on the peak out. It is the same principle. When you shoot a single leg you cannot expect to finish it cleanly every time. The video […]
