Make your opponents think twice before choosing the top position.
Tom Borrelli has spent a large part of his 31-year coaching career developing and refining the Leg Slip technique. This is a proven method for defending leg riders and is a major reason for Borrelli's 11 conference titles and 2010 MAC Coach of the Year Award.
This technique enables your athletes to wrestle for reversals and pins, not just escapes.
Coach Borrelli begins by teaching the key to the leg slip - the swim technique. This method gets the opponent to his hip and puts your athlete in prime position to hit a reversal and score back points.
Borrelli dissects two styles of leg riders - short leg with a hug technique and deep leg with a cross body ride. He explains and demonstrates how to effectively score points using the leg slip against each technique.
Learn to defend leg riders in a variety of situations:
Borrelli also shows how your athletes can use the leg slip as an offensive weapon.
This is a perfect technique for wrestlers who aren't very strong on their feet, as it keeps the opponent on the mat.
By practicing and perfecting the leg slip, your wrestlers will gain a greater confidence on the mat against any type of leg rider and avoid getting ridden out

Excellent series for countering both short and deep leg rides, turning them into reversals and back points. As Borrelli notes, once his wrestlers mastered this series, opponents rarely tried to leg ride -- and some of his wrestlers got so good at the leg slip series that they literally wrestled into a leg ride, where they either baited or even forced their opponents into putting legs in so that they could get the reversal and back points. Overall very well demonstrated, and a nice complement I think to Branch's No Fear: Attacking from the Bottom DVD, which takes a similar approach to baiting leg riders.
This is the most detailed information on countering leg rides I've seen. For high school wrestlers you could stick to the main situations,
but it has everything a college wrestler would need. If Borelli makes another dvd I'd buy it.
