Tips to Create a More Effective Inside Tie!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, January 17, 2014

Matt Azevedo, 2008 U.S. National Freestyle Champion, shows you how to perform a head pull to an inside step high crotch. You will learn arm positioning is essential to make this move the most effective and avoid getting the inside tie underhooked.

Inside Tie

Azevedo sets up this high crotch attack with a head pull down, level change and a back pedal. As he pulls down and back pedals, he sets his feet to shoot. As the opponent pulls up, he steps in and attacks the inside step high crotch. Finish the shot by driving across to a double leg position.

A Reliable Pinning Combination to Make You a Better Wrestler!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, January 17, 2014

Oklahoma State Assistant Coach, Zack Esposito, demonstrates perhaps the most reliable pinning combination from the near wrist in this segment. He will also provide you with tips on how to prevent your opponent from bridging.

Snake/Cement Job/Preacher Curl

He starts by prying down on the shoulder through a “preacher curl” motion on the arm. When a gap is created using this pry, he shoots the outside arm between the body and the arm, shoulder deep and sinks a deep half nelson control on the opponent’s head – this is the snake/cement job/double trouble. Coach Esposito finishes the hold with a hip check to keep the man flat and turns him over to his back.

Prevent Your Opponent from Creating a Counter Offense!

In this segment, former NCAA Champion at Oklahoma State, Zach Esposito, demonstrates the finer points of his spiral ride. The goal of the ride is to get as much weight on top as possible. The success of the ride is essential because the bottom man must be kept on the mat and controlled before the top man can work for a fall. 

Spiral Ride

To gain an edge on inside position, Zach begins with a reverse cup on the elbow and begins to put weight on the opponent before the start, he puts as much chest pressure on the opponent’s back as allowable. Notice that Zach is off of his knees and his head is on the far side as he drives with the legs and applies pressure with the shoulders.

Single Leg Technique to Create More Chances to Score Points!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, December 13, 2013

Matt Azevedo is a 2008 U.S. National Freestyle Champion and he demonstrates the head pull down and circle set up for a single leg. Azevedo emphasizes pulling, level changing, and setting the feet at the same time prior to the leg attack.

Single Leg Technique

After securing the inside tie with his trail leg hand, he circles away from the leg he wants and pulls down on the head. It is essential on the head pull that the wrestler change levels with his opponent and immediately attack a single leg.

Learn to Wrestle Better in the Top Position!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, December 13, 2013

Mark Manning, 2x Big 12 Wrestling Coach of the Year, demonstrates a chop breakdown to cross-wrist control. You will learn that the top man will need to drive his hips over the near arm and pivot on the front knee as you drive the hips to the hand.

Chop Breakdown

The top man is looking to cause the chop arm to bend. When the arm bends, capture the wrist with the cross hand (the hand around the waist) and pull it to the far hip.
