Facing an opponent who rides the legs is a daunting task - it is imperative that you stop those attacks to get to your feet. Otherwise, your wrestlers will expend a lot of energy, and possibly lose a lot of points. In this demonstration clinic presentation, Mark Ironside presents his tips and philosophy for stopping leg riders. He begins with proper positioning, which is the first line of defense against leg riders. From there he covers different ways to prevent the leg from getting in, and how to counter different situations once the legs are in. He concentrates his presentation on two key points - hand control and hips underneath. Learning to stop leg riders is not easy. However, with these philosophies your wrestlers will be in good position to stop whatever comes their way!

Excellent DVD, I own over 70 wrestling dvds. I watch them all the time for matches & skill adjustment. This dvd provides unique lessons. Mark Ironside's weakness used to be leg rides until he went to college with 2 of the best leg riders in the country & spent hours every week for years drilling counters to leg rides. This developed his weakness into his strength, escaping leg riders with masterful technique. He starts the lessons with positioning yourself so they can't leg ride, promoting escapes that don't allow for leg rides (get his sitback dvd), stopping the leg when the knee is coming in, stopping it when the foot has just come in for a reversal with a single leg take down, stopping it when the foot has made it to just between your thighs, stopping it when the 1 leg is in all the way but you are not broken down, stopping it when the leg is in and you're broken down, stopping it with 2 legs in and broken down, countering these even if the opponent has leg in and is reaching for your arm & appying the power half nelson or the leg for the banana split. Almost all the counters lead to a reversal with you ending in a dominant position. He also goes over countering crab rides from the sitting position, avoiding the half nelson from there and doing appropriate hand positioning and fighting. Finally for the escapes that don't lead to reversals, he finishes with how to build your base back up once you have escaped so that they can't throw legs in again, which is different from the standard base building. An excellent DVD. I have purchased all of Mark Ironside DVDs because on any subject matter I have seen him teach he goes above and beyond most instructors on detail. He doesn't just show the move and say "do these 3 steps" but explains in pHD level masterful detail what the goals are, common mistakes to avoid, and pearls not heard on any of the other over 70 wrestling dvds I own. I also own all John Smith DVDs (all are excellent) and I'd match up Mark Ironside's wrestling IQ and teaching skills with John Smith's any time, both instructors are 5 star. I am now a fan of Mark's dvd lessons. Can't wait for him to release more.

This dvd is especially good at preventing the legs from getting in. Great in combination with his sit back series.

This is a great instructyional video. Ironside is very clear. He identifies key points. It is good for teaching. Much better than other videos (I've reviewed 25+) where they breeze through the moves with little intructional points.

I highly recommend this video andf his sitback series.
