Check out an excellent breakdown of a tight waist hip shift from 4X All-American, Joe LeBlanc. As the all-time wins leader at Wyoming University, Leblanc has some insightful tips to offer you on performing this unique version of a tight waist breakdown.
Instruction: He begins on the whistle, by showing how to use the waist side elbow to hit the opponent in his hip bone and pull the opponent toward his near hip; the force on this breakdown is sideways, not forward. The hand on the elbow pulls on the elbow crease. The back leg pushes (sideways) as the down knee blocks. It is important that the top wrestler not fall to his side. Instead, after executing the hip shift, finish the breakdown by circling to the near side and pinching both of his knees with both of your knees.
As the former coach for Jordan Borroughs (World and Olympic Champion), Mark Manning, knows what it takes to be a great wrestler in the top position. You will see how to improve your starts with this jam and chop breakdown.
Instruction: First, line up tight to the opponent’s hips and with chest pressure down on the lower back. Second, on the whistle, get hip to hip, get chest pressure on the upper back and belly pressure down on his lower back. Third, and at the same time, pry out on the outside thigh as one would in a spiral ride and drive into his ribs with that outside shoulder. Fourth, drive with your feet and stay off your knees as you drive the back leg into the opponent’s hips. Finally, chop the near arm by driving the hips over the near arm using the pressure described here. Note that all of his action is taking place at the same time.
2X World Champion, Terry Brands, shows you how to create seamless transitions from set-up to takedown. Score back points by transitioning from the feet to the turk in any situation.
Instruction: Off of a double leg takedown, if the opponent gets to his belly, the attacking athlete can immediately look to continue his drive, lift the near leg and turk the bottom leg for nearfall points. The attacking athlete can also control the hip bone of the opponent with his far elbow and go immediately into a hip tilt or gut wrench turn. Coach Brands also emphasizes the elbow control of the hip. The hip control is also a key element of going immediately into an ankle lace turn from this position for Freestyle wrestling.
