Put Opponents Into a Pinch with the Double Chicken Wing!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, November 1, 2015

Oklahoma State University assistant coach, Zack Esposito, loves to get his opponents into a double chicken wing. Once a wrestler has their opponent’s arms locked behind their back, they’ll be able to roll the opponent over and get their shoulders against the mat for an impressive pin.

Double Chicken Wing

Drill Summary: When the wrestler has secured the opponent’s arm in an over bar, jump to the side of the opponent (away from the over bar). When the opponent posts with their free arm, slip your arm up and over theirs and reel it back in for a double chicken wing. From there, the wrestler can roll over and go for the pin.

Counter Opponents Who Have Inside Control!

Russ Cozart, head coach at Brandon High School in Florida, shows how to execute the “Two-on-One,” an effective move for stopping opponents who are good at inside control. By neutralizing aggressive opponents who maintain inside control, you will have a better chance of winning the match.

Two-on-One

Drill Summary: Wrestlers pair up and begin folk style pummeling. On the coach’s command, one of the wrestlers goes for a two-on-1 by getting elbow control, sliding their hand up and grabbing the opponent’s wrist with their other hand. From there, Coach Cozart likes to teach his wrestlers to get a single leg on the same side.

Learn to Pull Off a Cross Ankle Pick!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Thursday, October 1, 2015

Eden Prairie High School head coach and two time National High School Coach of the Year, Scot Davis, shows how to secure a cross ankle pick. In the clip, Coach Davis demonstrates the move to his wrestlers, then offers his advice as they attempt to do the move themselves.

Ankle Pick – Cross Ankle

Drill Summary: To secure a cross ankle, the wrestler must get the opponent’s lead leg forward. Once the wrestler sees an opportunity, they apply pressure down on the opponent’s head, reach across and grab their opposite ankle. It’s important to never let go of the head while reaching for the ankle. Once the ankle is secured, force the opponent down to the mat.

Discover the Essentials for Pre-Match Routines!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Thursday, October 1, 2015

It’s no secret that people who establish routines and habits have a better chance of being successful during competition. Joe LeBlanc, University of Northern Colorado assistant coach and four time All-American at the University of Wyoming, explains the necessities of a great pre-match routine.

Pre-Match Routine

Video Summary: Talk to your athletes to find out what they need from you. Make sure your athletes are staying hydrated and keeping their muscle glucose up… Also, make sure your athletes are getting plenty of carbohydrates during the season for fuel. You can rehydrate faster than you can add glucose back to your muscle.

Top Position Techniques to Give You an Edge!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Thursday, October 1, 2015

University of Illinois associate head coach, Mark Perry, presents a few of the techniques he uses from the top position. Moves like the ones in this video are what helped Perry gain an edge over his opponents while he went on to win two NCAA Championships at the University of Iowa.

Top Position Technique

Drill Summary: Coach Perry urges all wrestlers to figure out the top position technique they are comfortable with, then stick to it during all matches. Some of the things he likes to do include: knee to back prior to the whistle, squeeze the opponent prior to the whistle (to take the air out of them), push forward with the inside arm immediately after the whistle and secure a claw inside. No matter what you do, Coach Perry urges you to think “Attack!”
