Steve Garland provides new, creative and fun ways to work on old positions. Inside, you'll see more than 20 drills that develop the skills needed to become a dominate wrestler. These drills can easily be implemented into a practice routine and will help create the muscle memory necessary to become a chain wrestler. Using this system of drills will help wrestlers and coaches:

  • Build core concepts and skills while changing up their routine
  • Learn how to keep an opponent off balance
  • Focus on the four main positions from the feet
  • Build good position into every portion of practice

Warm-up and Conditioning Drills
Coach Garland demonstrates several types of warm-up sequences that progress from light intensity, to intermediate intensity, and to a high intensity session. Garland gives you a variety of drills that will increase a wrestler's speed, strength, and cardiovascular endurance. One of the unique things about this video is that each of the drills builds on earlier drills and motor skills, so that wrestlers can perform them more effectively and see how the skills are put together in order to create the ultimate chain wrestler.

From the Feet
Learn drills for making wrestlers more effective on their feet. Coach Garland reveals drills that focus on the four main positions in wrestling (Single Leg Position, Hi-Crotch Position, Double Leg Position, and the Re-Shot), as well as short offensive drills that will help wrestlers become more complete on their feet. These drills include individual and partner drills and work on everything from shot drills to proper short offensive drills. Garland goes over each position with an emphasis on the perfect attack position and the ability to defend.

Scrambling drills are also taught in meticulous detail. These drills focus on defending a low single leg attack and stopping funk counters. With the proliferation of these techniques at the high school and college levels, it is imperative that wrestlers have a defense for them.

Bottom Position
Discover specific drills that can be used at practice in order to fight common positions and create muscle memory. The bottom position drills cover how to defend basic breakdowns such as the Tight Waist, Spiral Ride, and Ankle Ride. This video emphasizes the little things that will make it easier for wrestlers to escape and score from the bottom position.

Top Position
From the top position, Garland goes over his philosophy, and how to use these drills to become a dominant top wrestler. You'll see the "Grind Ride" drill, a position the University of Virginia uses to dominate their opponents.

The drills covered in this video will keep your team in perfect position during matches and will keep your wrestlers excited about practice, leaving the drudgery of traditional practice behind.

Average DVD that builds on the previous drill showed. The reshot drill is great and will be implemented into my practice immediately.

This was a great video. What I liked most was how the handfighting drills build off of each other in a way that doesnt bore your wrestler. He covers stuff from all positions that are helpful.There is a reason why Garlands teams at Virginia are improving each year. Reminds me of what Ryan did with Hofstra.

Dvd was good, and shows several finishes and basic drills for many different positions. The teaching was excellent and relevent. It was not "buy it today" good, but if you're interested from the short video, it's worth the purchase.
