Former USA World Team member, Eric Akin, demonstrates finishes from different positions. Here, Akin teaches the young athlete to “run the corner” and attack the far leg to finish a single leg on the mat. In addition, a second drill is for a double leg finish from the knees.
The first position has the athlete begin on a single leg in bad position. First, the youth wrestler is to lock his hands around the partner’s knees, “like a rope.” Next, the wrestler will “cork screw” the partner’s far hip to the mat so that he lands with his legs together on his side, “like a mermaid.”
Jordan Leen, 2008 NCAA Champion at Cornell, goes over a segment called “Drills.” He teaches both Inside and Outside Locks and explains that wrestlers may be able to set up different locks on their own, in their own way to get to the perfect lock. He also demonstrates how to climb up from a False Lock to a Relock.
Jordan stresses that to be good at this technique one must be able to use their feet like hands.

University of Virginia Head Coach, Steve Garland, illustrates a “Re-Shot Position Drill” he has used to develop championship wrestlers. This Re-Shot Drill is a good way to teach your wrestlers how to react to an opponent’s attack while working with a teammate and also getting heart rates up.
Whenever an opponent gets his head down the opportunity to score is there and with Coach Garland’s Re-Shot Drill your wrestlers will be able to capitalize on their opponent’s mistakes and put two more points on the board.
Duane Goldman has a history of excellence in wrestling. He is Indiana’s Head Wrestling Coach and was a 4x All-American at the University of Iowa. In this segment the, “Front Headlock, Roll Under”, is a technique that sets up two options to get a takedown or pin.
The first option is the Headlock Roll into the Half Nelson. The second option refers to the Head-in-the Hole technique. This could lead to a Cradle Pin. Goldman also gives you options to use if the opponent’s hands and feet are on the mat.
Eric Akin, former 4x All-American and current youth wrestling coach, shows you an inside tie leg attack set up. Use this series of moves to control your opponent and put yourself in position to score points.
Use the collar tie to “steering wheel”, move your feet laterally in the opposite direction of the club motion on the head and pull the inside tie arm away from the opponent’s body. As the opponent regains his stance, set your feet in a stance ready to leg attack. As the opponent comes up, attack the legs.
