Ben Askren's style has been described as many things: "one-of-a-kind," "unorthodox," "crazy" and "funky." The fact is that these "funk" positions happen in the natural flow of the match. These same situations have been seen at all levels - from high school duals to the NCAA Championships. Now for the first time ever Ben Askren shares his "funk" technique with you. Askren breaks down his three main "funk" techniques from the feet: the Pass, Double Ankles and a move he calls: "The World's Best Unknown Move." Each move is broken down step-by-step from multiple angles. In addition, he provides counters to each move, as well as a defense against each counter. As a bonus he also shares his defensive technique against the High Crotch and Double Leg takedowns. Mastering this "funk" style of wrestling will give you a leg up on the best competition.

Askren does a good job of explaining his funk moves. Wow, I didn't even know most of these moves (or the counters) existed. The real questions is whether I will use the moves and/or teach them or continue to use more traditional defense and scrambling. Recommend for advanced wrestlers only

It's definitely a non-traditional way of countering leg attacks. He goes through his moves and "what ifs". His attack is very thorough.
I do think you can teacher those moves to some wrestlers. All wrestlers should be familiar with the funk defenses even if they don't use them because so many wrestlers are using them.
I am not sure this is everyone's cup of tea. Definitely one for more advanced wrestlers. I guess the best testomonial for this DVD is that I have loaned it to the parents of our program's best wrestlers---had a hard time getting it back! Those wrestlers do well in national competition using moves taught in this DVD.
I think the main thing that makes this dvd so good is the way mr. askren teaches his skill sets. he just breaks the moves down so well and really gives you a plan A and plan B type of system. well worth the money for sure. 2 thumbs up!
