John Smith knows what it takes to build champions. Now, Coach Smith provides unprecedented access to the Oklahoma State practice room during the first three practices of the 2011-12 wrestling season.
Included in this DVD package is instruction on:
Day 1:Coach begins practice with a team meeting in which he explains the importance of getting mentally prepared for practice. Smith proceeds to teach the bottom position drills that the team will use on a regular basis to build technique and form the foundation for their wrestling season. The drills focus on specific situations and skill development. In this manner they warm-up with more technique than some teams include in an entire practice. All drills build wrestling specific movements and habits to score from the bottom position. The team proceeds with drilling from their feet. Before releasing the team, coach explains the aspects of what makes a good drill and why it drilling is important.
Day 2:The team uses many of the Day 1 drills in their warm-up and coach reviews them as needed. They then proceed to warm-up drills from the neutral and top position. After the warm-up drills are finished the team works on scoring from their feet.
Day 3:Day three features a workout in the OSU weight room as the team is led through a strength workout. Coach Smith and his staff share a plethora of techniques as they work with the wrestlers on takedowns. Later, the team has a workout on the mat in a smaller group setting. This allows the coaching staff to work on the individual needs of the team members. By watching Coach Smith and his assistants, you will learn how to provide feedback to wrestlers, how to target instruction to individuals, and how to match your coaching style to individual wrestlers.
Developing positive habits and a strong state of mind is essential to building a quality wrestling program. The drills demonstrated in this video and John Smith's coaching style has been integral in building the OSU program into one that is always in contention for a championship. Now you can use these same drills and coaching techniques to create champions in your program!

All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's practice can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you!
This video offers a fascinating look into the OSU wrestling environment. Watching it is pretty much the same thing as if you sat on the bleachers for 3 days. I definitely learned a lot, especially about how much college programs (this one, anyway) focus on getting off bottom. However, this is not a video you will watch over and over, the way you might a pure technique video, and for that reason I think it's overpriced. I have $40 videos in my collection I consult all the time, but that's not the kind of video this is. You will watch it a couple of times at most.
