Discover how to use the momentum of a takedown to score back points.

One of the biggest misconceptions in wrestling is that the differences between folkstyle and freestyle makes it hard to be good at both. In this instructional wrestling DVD, Olympic Bronze medalist Terry Brands demonstrates that is not the case.

Coach Brands covers the key to success to both styles - transitional wrestling. To achieve success at any level, in any arena, you need to make a seamless transitions from set-up, to takedown, to turns to pins.

Brands teaches the philosophy and techniques you need to be a great wrestler in both the freestyle and folkstyle arenas. He focuses on four areas:

  • High Crotch - Learn head and hand placement to start turns earlier.
  • Double Leg - See how to get into the best position for back points.
  • Trap Arm Gut/Wings- Learn to catch the arm and drive to the mat to get tilts and falls.
  • Power Singles and Extended Singles - Learn the key to producing drive and power in your singles.

Throughout the DVD, Brands demonstrates technique for both freestyle and folkstyle and shows you the fundamental positions that will move you closer to becoming an elite wrestler.

Wrestlers struggle when they wrestle in "chunks." Learn to eliminate that philosophy to expand scoring opportunities.

This DVD is for all wrestlers aspiring to get to the "elite" level.

This material really helps debunk the misconception of Freestyle vs. Folkstyle 'difference'. For those wrestlers, parents and coaches who still hold on to the myth that there's a gap that exist between both styles, I would strongly suggest to get this dvd 1st before investing into any other material out there. It will only help better explain the approach of either styles and how one would just treat it as WRESTLING!
