Signature Moves Series: Jessie Reyes - Inside Trip
on December 2, 2015

This is an excellent DVD, about executing a technique that is commonly overlooked and under-rated in wrestling. Admittedly during my competitive years, I was guilty of completing ignoring the inside trip. I overlooked it because it wasn't something emphasized in the practice room, just seemed too easy, and wasn't something anyone did on a routine basis. Maybe during competition you'd see it done every now and then, but doubles, singles and high crotches seemed to be the most effective takedowns.

Every wrestler has one or two moves that they'd hit consistently all the time, "a go to move" if you will; well, the inside trip is Jessie Reyes' go to move. Right from the beginning you can tell Jessie has spent a lot of time thinking about what makes the inside trip work and is very knowledgeable about how to set it up. Honestly, in the 18 plus years I have been wrestling, the minor details and set ups he showed for the inside trip was something was I was never taught or seen. Like most things, it's the minor details which make or break the successful execution of a technique.
The inside trip is a great high percentage move that is commonly overlooked. Now that I'm older, heavier and slower, I don't have the gas tank to level change and hit doubles and singles all the time. The inside trip is a great takedown to add to your arsenal. A great DVD with a lot of good details and explanations on how to set up this technique so you can hit it constantly all the time.
