Defend Against a High Crotch!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Monday, February 1, 2016

University of Missouri head assistant coach and former All-American wrestler at Edinboro, Alex Clemsen, shows you how to go on the defensive after your opponent has successfully attacked a high crotch position. The key to stopping the opponent is taking away the angle they want.

High Crotch Defense

Drill Summary: This move is to be completed after the opponent has successfully attacked into a high crotch position. Begin by taking your near-side hand and “destroying” the opponent’s head by doing a tricep extension motion (down and away) on the opponent’s hair line. From there, curl your leg, square your hips and take away the opponent’s angle. As you do this, attack their ribcage with your other hand. Twist on top of the opponent, then move your hands to their arm pit and butt. Finally, go for the butt drag takedown.

Get an Underhook from a Single Leg Shot!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, January 1, 2016

Mark Perry, University of Illinois associate head coach and former two time National Champion wrestler, explains how to use a single leg shot to get an underhook. As opponents become more advanced, you’ll have to find creative ways like this one to get to an underhook position.

Getting the Underhook

Drill Summary: Take a single-leg shot. If you can get the takedown, great! If you can’t secure it, then drive up and bring your arm onto the opponent’s shoulder into an underhook position. The great part about this move is you can continue to do it multiple times in a row until you get into the position that you desire.

Learn to Roll Through from Barry Davis!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, January 1, 2016

University of Wisconsin head coach and three time NCAA Champion wrestler, Barry Davis, shows you a roll through move that opponents won’t see coming. By giving the opposing wrestler some space, you’ll be able to chop and control their wrist to get into an opportunistic position.

Roll Through

Drill Summary: When you have your opponent flat on the mat, give them some space to come up. Once they come up, start your near-wrist series and chop them to the mat. Once they’re down, look to get a cross-wrist. From there, the opponent will likely roll over to avoid back points. After they do, continue to give them space while maintaining wrist control. When they try to come up into their base, stay low and roll through.

Discover Kerry McCoy’s Basic Slide-By Technique!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, January 1, 2016

The slide-by is a move that every wrestler should have in their arsenal of moves. In this clip, University of Maryland head coach and three time ACC Coach of the Year, Kerry McCoy, shows his basic slide-by technique that will allow you to pull the opponent past you and get on their back.

Slide-By Technique

Drill Summary: Start off in a position where both you and your opponent have a collar tie. From that position, step-step with your feet (small step with your back foot, big step with your front foot) to get yourself in position. From there, make a fist with your outside hand and block above the opponent’s elbow. Next, lean back and turn your head and body, pull the opponent’s head and arm past your face and clamp them down.

Take Control with These Two Moves!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, January 1, 2016

Central Michigan University head coach, Tom Borrelli, presents the way that he teaches his wrestlers to kick out of a banana split and also a move called the “Ankle Switch.” Both of these moves require quick thinking and even faster reactions from the wrestler, making them impressive to pull off.

Banana Split & Ankle Switch

Drill Summary: When you’ve raised your hips up and your opponent goes for a banana split, take off with your free leg over and you should be able to kick out of it. Don’t raise your hips up too long – just get a little height to use as momentum.

To get an ankle switch, the opponent must be riding a deep leg. Try to get the opponent’s hips high so they have to post their foot to keep their balance. When they post their foot, catch it with your inside arm, drop your head, and sit out. As you’re sitting out, switch your hand on the opponent’s foot, bring your hips up and you’ll have legs in on your opponent.
