Instill Mark Perry’s Winning Mindset!

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

University of Illinois associate head coach, Mark Perry, is determined to train his wrestlers to believe they’ll never get beat by short offense. The fire and passion of coach Perry is reflected in this neutral position drill, which will help wrestlers on both offense and defense.

Neutral Position Drill

Drill Summary: Wrestlers take their stances. The offensive wrestler takes a shot, clears, then re-shoots. The defensive wrestler works on maintaining their balance and technique against the offense. It’s important to work on going hip to hip and making adjustments based on how your opponent is playing you.

Learn to Get a Collar Tie as a Heavyweight!

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

To set up offense, learning to use the collar tie is essential for the heavyweight wrestler. In this drill, University of Maryland head coach, Kerry McCoy, shows you how he gets opponents in a collar tie.

Collar Tie

Drill Summary: The wrestler starts in a good stance and makes sure to protect their lead leg. As the opponent comes closer, the wrestler reaches with the hand opposite their lead leg and jabs the opponent’s forehead or shoulder. The next step is to slide that hand into the collar tie position, while simultaneously closing the gap between your bodies. It’s important to not close the gap too far or the opponent could take advantage of the bad position.

Four-time All-American Joe LeBlanc works on three different techniques for the bottom position in this video: the hip heist, the granby and the knee slide. All three moves will help wrestlers work their way out of tough situations and get back to attacking the opponent.

Hip Heist, Granby, Knee Slide

Drill Summary: Wrestlers find a spot on the mat and envision being on the bottom against an opponent. On their own, wrestlers practice hip heisting, granbying, and knee sliding to improve their skills from the bottom position.

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, May 1, 2015

Rob Eiter, five-time U.S. Open national champion, teaches you how to execute a high drag in the heat of battle. Once wrestlers use the high drag, Eiter explains how to re-attack and get into a double leg.

High Drag

Drill Summary: When the opponent has grabbed or re-grabbed your wrist, square up (if you’re a left leg lead) and shoot your left arm under the opponent’s left arm behind their elbow, then penetrate deep on a re-attack and go for a double leg. You can also duck under their left arm after squaring up with a baseball grip, which will allow a shot at a double leg as well.

Execute the Bar Tilt with Tim Flynn!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, May 1, 2015

There are many things that wrestlers can do from the top position. Edinboro University head coach Tim Flynn is fond of using the bar tilt after locking up the opponent’s leg, and in this video, Flynn teaches you how to drive into the bar to secure your opponent.

Bar Tilt

Drill Summary: Start this move when the wrestler is riding their opponent and has one of the opponent’s legs locked up. From that position, to hip the opponent over, the wrestler has to make sure the opponent’s arm isn’t blocking them from doing so. If it is, grab the opponent’s fingers and drag the arm down to their hip. You can also place your elbow in the crux of the opponent’s elbow and turn the opponent’s body, which will allow you to slip your arm under their body and onto their back. After that, lunge forward into a bar tilt and go for the fall. It’s also important to remember to block the opponent from rolling into you whenever you go to flip them over for this move.
