Ben Askren's "funk" style of wrestling is widely known for its aggressiveness- evidence of this is his school records 91 career falls and 29 falls in a season. Askren shows the secrets of his favorite pinning combinations. He focuses on three pinning holds: the inside cradle, outside cradle, and the hammerlock. Askren teaches a number of finishes for each, showing how to score the fall no matter what your opponent tries to do to counter it. He also includes his brand of the three-quarter nelson, as well as his own creation - 'the Assassin,' which originated from a freestyle move. He covers each move from breakdown to finish, and details how he made each move work in college. These moves are applicable at all levels of wrestling.

Askren's dvd's always have some individualized details that he has developed to counter his opponents counters. You appreciate how he studies positions and approaches possible counters. I think his skills are more teachable then first thought.
As a middle school coach I use a lot of the techniques that Askren shows in the video. The cradle and breakdown drill has been invaluable and has made my kids more skillful when it comes to pinning their opponent.
