Use an Elbow Pass to Set Up a Leg Attack!

By dustin.moscoso - Last updated: Saturday, November 1, 2014

In this segment, Eric Akin, 4X All-American for Iowa State University demonstrates elbow control to an elbow pass set-up. This will help you set-up a leg attack.

Elbow Control/Elbow Pass

Control the elbow, “like a lobster claw pinch” and pull it in above the elbow. If the attacking wrestler is at 12:00, he will move his feet to get to 3:00 or 9:00 position in relation to his opponent. As he creates an angle, he will push the elbow across his face without pulling his head out of positon. Instead, put the head down, “like a chicken pecking corn.” Once the angle is there and the elbow is passed, set the feet in attacking stance. Both hands should be behind his elbow. “Chase the angle”, set the feet, and execute a leg attack.

By nate.landas - Last updated: Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Edinboro University Head Coach and 2014 NWCA Coach of the Year, Tim Flynn, demonstrates how to perform a basic breakdown with the tight waist chop.

Tight Waist Chop

Coach Flynn begins the segment by explaining the importance of being ready to run forward when you get on top of your opponent, rather than sitting back on your legs. Once the whistle blows, the top man drives forward chopping the arm of the bottom man. As you start to get extended, you want to take your back knee and drive it between your opponents legs. This is a good basic breakdown drill for any level of wrestler.

Learn how to build as great stance with University of Illinois Associate Head Coach and 2013 Amateur Wrestling News Division I Coach of the Year, Mark Perry. In this video, Perry discusses the important of stance and how it affects your offense and defense.

Stance

Coach Perry begins by addressing your position on the mat. He explains that you always want to be six to eight inches apart from your lead leg peck to your lead leg knee. A mistake commonly seen is when wrestlers get fatigued and stand straight up. Coach Perry explains that if your hands are not able to touch the mat at all times, that is a good indication that you are not low enough. Having the correct position is essential at every level of wrestling.
