The Art of Hand Fighting

with Mark Ironside,
2x NCAA Champ and 4x All-American at the University of Iowa;1998 Dan Hodge Trophy winner

Hand fighting is an essential wrestling skill. Two-time National Champion Mark Ironside shares drills for becoming an effective hand fighter and, in turn, a more dangerous wrestler on your feet.

Hand fighting is about moving your opponent so that you can set up your attacks. Coach Ironside takes a novel approach to the skill: He believes that a level of high intensity and complete domination must be maintained throughout the match. He stresses that wrestlers should set a fast pace and maintain it throughout the match.

Coach Ironside covers the basic strategy of hand fighting in the neutral position, such as not reaching, keeping elbows close, using heavy hands, applying constant pressure and immediately re-attacking. He demonstrates how to correctly close the gap when hand fighting, which maintains a good position and makes it easier to move an opponent.

He shares several drills for quickly improving positioning, including a push-pull drill that teaches wrestlers to move their hands and feet together. From these hand fighting techniques, Coach Ironside shows how to get and use four control ties, such as the 2-1, double inside tie and inside tie/wrist combination. He shows ways to control and clear these ties that will move your opponent. Each of these ties works together to create a potent offense that will exhaust your opponent. While demonstrating these ties, Coach Ironside also shows several takedowns.

Finally, Coach Ironside demonstrates how to drill hand fighting with a partner and how to clear a front head lock.

Don't just hand fight; use it to create an offense that cannot be beat! Let Mark Ironside show you how to enhance your hand fighting skills to score from the neutral position.

The Art of Breakdowns: Creating Constant Grinding Pressure

with Mark Ironside,
2x NCAA Champ and 4x All-American at the University of Iowa;1998 Dan Hodge Trophy winner

The difference between a good wrestler and a great wrestler is knowing how to break your opponent down and keep him down. Dan Hodge Trophy winner Mark Ironside teaches the skills necessary to dominate from the top position. His techniques center on applying constant, grinding pressure and the importance of always having forward pressure from the top position.

Coach Ironside demonstrates four breakdowns that span all the various levels of wrestling, and explains the finer points of each. He shows the Chop & Drive, Deep Waist Far Ankle, Spiral Ride, and Hook Ankle. He also shares six effective turns from these breakdowns, explaining the best option to use depending on how the bottom man reacts. He demonstrates a base drill to make wrestlers work both sides of their opponent, training them to flow from one breakdown to another until the opponent is exhausted. This also serves as a great conditioning drill.

He concludes the video by demonstrating how to return an opponent to the mat once they reach their feet. You'll see two versions-- how to bring him to the mat by elevating him and another by rotating him down from his hips.

Go from good to great with these top breakdowns and skills.
