by ArthurChenevey304

This four video set encompasses the fundamentals of solid wrestling skills anyone interested in becoming a well rounded wrestler and coach, regardless of skill level and coaching expertise. It's an information rich, fast paced, learning experience that innately chains all of the wrestling basics as they need to be learned, practiced, drilled and countered. There is so much on each of these videos that the time frame stated as to the length of each video is deceptively packed, that is, Douglas does not waste time going over a single application, again and again. If one needs to replay, just use the replay apps of one's DVD Player. Many competitive DVDs run 45 to 120 minutes, but their draw back is that it shows several, single applications over and over. Douglas' short 20 minute video on Mat work, for example, is so jammed backed, that one will need to replay the flowing drills or applications over several times to get the full benefit of how the set ups, drills and counters operate in the fluid ways demonstrated on the video. Personally, I really like and approve of how Douglas uses this learning medium--He uses it to the medium's utmost, maximum potential, yet clearly demonstrates how to execute the action, how to drill it, how to set it up and how to counter it is a smooth flow of spontaneous action. This DVD set needs to be in any serious athlete's learning library and on every wrestling coaches shelves as a serious training aid. Bobby Douglas genuinely demonstrates why he is one of wrestlings all time technical masters and superb coach and teacher. One might gain a glimpse, too, as to why Cael Sanderson was so good as an athlete and wrestling technician, and so proficient as Penn States' new chief wrestling coach.
