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.

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.

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.

Use a Power Switch to Turn the Tables!

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

Matt Azevedo, Drexel University head coach, uses the power switch to reverse his opponents. The power switch is a more explosive version of the switch that will more easily allow the wrestler to escape from the bottom position.

Power Switch

Drill Summary: On the bottom position, the wrestler replaces their hand with their other hand, their elbow comes back and hits the opponent in the bicep, trying to knock them off balance. At the same time the elbow comes back, the wrestler brings their same knee to the ceiling, keeps their lower body close to the mat and executes a switch of the hips. From there, the wrestler can attack the opponent’s leg.
