Work on the “Stand Up” to Escape from Your Opponent!

In this escape sequence on the mat, 4x All-American Eric Akin has his youth wrestlers demonstrate the “Stand Up.” One of the essentials here is for the foot to get posted out in front.

Stand Up

From the start position, it is essential that the foot come out as a post. Freeze the athletes here and emphasize pushing back and getting the foot posted out in front. From this one knee down and the foot out position, the wrestler will need to push back off the posted foot to get to his feet.
