The stand-up is a high percentage escape that is very complex. The technique for the stand-up has to be good or you won't be able to get away from a good rider. John Smith begins with his philosophy on the move and some key points on finding a base position that is comfortable for you. From there Coach Smith demonstrates the inside leg stand-up - from the base position to getting away once you reach your feet. He goes step-by-step through the move, highlighting the key points as he goes along. From there he shows how to successfully hit the stand-up versus three common breakdowns - the chop, ankle pick and spiral ride. He also includes a stand-up variation for heavyweight wrestlers. Throughout the presentation, Smith calls on his brother, Lee Roy Smith, Executive Director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum, (and former Arizona State University Head Coach, World Silver medalist and NCAA Champion) to complement his teaching points. Through this DVD, Coach Smith presents the key points to help you get off the mat quicker and make the stand-up your "go to escape."
45 minutes. 2006.
Great, detailed demonstration for an effective stand-up against quality opponents. There are many schools of thought on the stand-up -- do you create a cage or do you go for hand control? do you stand up and back in while walking out or do you immediately hip heist and cut away? -- but all that aside, if you master the finer point of the techniques as demonstrated by Smith, you'll likely be quite adept at hitting the move, rendering the debate moot.
This is an excellent presentation. It covers the PROPER way to stand up and get away. There are no stone left unturned. This dvd will give you what you need to know in order to get up and get away everytime. The typical Smith attention to detail is very obvious in the this dvd as well. Another great dvd by John Smith. Now all we need is a John Smith dvd about top position!
