Get Out of a Side-by-Side Stalemate!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, July 1, 2015

University of Virginia assistant coach, Keith Gavin, walks you through a last-resort move that can get you out of a side-by-side stalemate with your opponent. A quick bump, followed by a limping of the arm and quick jerk-down can be all you need to escape from a difficult position.

Bump & Limp

Drill Summary: This move should be executed as a last-ditch effort from a side-by-side “seatbelt” stalemate position when you can’t get an underhook on the opponent’s near shoulder. To start the sequence, make sure you have the opponent’s hips covered and bump into them. Next, turn the palm up on your locked arm and limp it down and out of the opponent’s grasp.

Push Back and Retaliate Using the Tripod!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, July 1, 2015

One of Edinboro University assistant coach Cliff Moore’s signature moves is his push back ability. In this video, coach Moore shows how to push back and use the tripod to get your opponent’s weight off and open up opportunities to attack.

Tripod

Drill Summary: After coming out of the bottom position, you may find yourself on your butt with your opponent putting a lot of pressure down on you. To execute the tripod, tilt your shoulders up so that the opponent will more easily slide off them, then cut under their grasp. Once the opponent adjusts back, you will be able to come up to your base. Make sure to keep your hip away from the opponent in this position and try to avoid giving them wrist control.

See Doug Schwab’s Best Shadow Wrestling Moves!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, July 1, 2015

Shadow wrestling should be an integral part of the developing wrestler’s training regimen. Doug Schwab, University of Northern Iowa head coach, has his entire team work on down blocking and firing in this exclusive look into his program’s all-access DVD.

Down Block & Fire

Drill Summary: Wrestlers find an open spot on the mat and work on down blocking and firing during their shadow wrestling routine. Coach Schwab instructs his wrestlers to be quick, bend the knees to generate power, stop the opponent and sting them. Next, transition into working on low-level attacks. Remember to stay loose and be limber in the low stance while remaining totally in control of all your movements.

Foot Fight to Prevent the Opponent from Locking!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, July 1, 2015

University of Virginia head coach, Steve Garland, says his favorite drill of all-time is the “Foot Fighting Drill”. In this clip, coach Garland shows you the drill and how to move your feet to keep opposing wrestlers from riding your legs.

Foot Fighting Drill

Drill Summary: This drill is to be used to prevent leg riders from ever getting a lock on your legs. Without an opponent on you, work on a “windshield wiper” movement with both of your legs, moving them back and forth with your hands and knees on the ground. Add an opponent and have them try to lock either of your legs, then work on sliding your feet under theirs and avoiding the lock.

See How Scot Davis Teaches Wrestlers to Slide-By!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Monday, June 1, 2015

Two-time national high school coach of the year, Scot Davis, takes his wrestlers through the steps to do a slide-by in this clip. Using a slide-by gives wrestlers the potential to take their opponent to the ground and gain control of the match.

Slide-By

Drill Summary: After the wrestler gets their opponent in a collar tie, the first step to a slide-by is to reach up with their other arm and push the opponent’s arm into the side of their head. Once the opponent’s arm is out of the way, the wrestler steps in and catches the opponent’s upper body between their arms. From there, it’s likely that the wrestler can take their opponent to the ground.
