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.
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.
University of Wisconsin La-Crosse Head Coach, Dave Malecek, illustrates the “Line Drill” that allows coaches to check the team’s understanding of different concepts and techniques quickly and easily. It will teach wrestlers to keep moving because there is no particular resting spot.
This is also a flexible drill because almost any set of moves could be used.
