Description

with John Smith,
Oklahoma State University Head Coach,
2011 Big 12 Coach of the Year (9x Conference Coach of the Year); 5X NCAA Championships as a coach;
2X Olympic Gold Medalist,
6X World Champion, 2X NCAA Champion

It's hard to win matches if you can't escape the bottom position. Now you can turn those losing situations into points!

In this instructional wrestling DVD, wrestling icon John Smith shows you how to come out on top when you're on the bottom.

Smith demonstrates how to beat eight common situations wrestlers struggle with:

  • Tight waist rides: Beat the most popular ride in wrestling. Smith also shows what to do if you get chopped from the tight waist.
  • Bar arms from the tight waist: Learn how to get out of 2-on-1 and bellied out situations.
  • The Tulsa Ride: See how you can use your hips to get your opponent out of position.
  • Trapped ankles: Defend near and far ankle rides. Smith includes the swisher technique to get to your feet.
  • One leg in: Learn five options based on hip position to free the leg and score points.
  • Two legs in: See how pressuring into the opponent can get you into a scramble position.
  • Crab rides: Get five options for beating crab rides including tips for beating the half nelson from the crab ride.
  • Mat returns from the feet: Learn to stay in position to get the escape.

In each area, Smith clearly defines the key to each move, concentrating on the hip and hand positions. These are the same techniques that he teaches in the Oklahoma State wrestling room. These techniques will keep your wrestlers from being ridden for long stretches of time, giving up riding time or being scored on with cheap tilts.

The hardest area of wrestling is coming off the bottom once you get stopped. Incorporate these situational wrestling drills into your practice and your wrestlers will get back to scoring position quicker and more consistently.

85 minutes. 2010.

The king of technique did a great job again. This is comparable to his neutral position dvd on scrambling. Great skill set on maintining a base and working to counter the top man's efforts. I agree with others that it is one of the best dvd's on down wrestling along with Smith's standup dvd, Ironside's sit-back, and Askren's tripod series.

Great DVD. Like in all of his DVDs, John Smith goes into great detail with each technique. I highly recommend this if you have problems escaping rides. He doesnt teach quick standups or sitouts, but he goes over how to escape once you are caught in a tough ride.

Fantastic stuff. Buy this DVD, understand the concepts and drill the techniques associated with them, and you shouldn't fear being on the bottom ever again. In fact, couple this DVD with the Branch DVD on attacking from bottom, the Askren 5-pt Reversal DVD, and (if you aren't the greatest at standing up) either Smith's Stand-up or Ironside's Sit Back DVDs, and it could just change your entire mindset. A wrestler is far more dangerous when he doesn't panic on bottom.

This is another really good John Smith DVD. It is the longest one I have seen of his and he covers all kinds of helpful situations that a wrestler should know how to react in. I am looking forward to teaching this during the off season so my wrestlers will be better prepared for next season. We can't get off bottom to save our lives!!! I am glad I bought this, 5 stars!!!!

Bottom position seems often overlooked on many camps and DVDs and the hardest to coach. This is a great collection of techniques.
