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

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Tuesday, July 1, 2014

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.

Use Hand Control and the Hip Heist to Get More Escapes!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Sunday, June 1, 2014

In the first sequence from the feet, former 4x All-American at Iowa State University, Eric Akin demonstrates how he teaches young wrestlers to attack one hand.  In the second sequence presented here, Coach Akin and his athletes focus on the cut-through or unravelling of the yo-yo skill.

Hand Control & Hip Heist

With the partner’s hands locked, the athlete digs his thumbs into the partner’s top hand, “like a can opener”. Next, it is essential that the athlete drop his level/bend his knees and get his weight down as he walks his hips away from the opponent. As he lowers his weight and gets the hips away, he rolls the top hand, keeps ahold of it with one hand and puts it in his “back pocket.” Finally, the athlete turns in a manner that gets him free of the arm around his waist by, “unravelling the yo-yo.”
