Work on Hand Positioning to Improve Your Offense!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, January 21, 2014

A popular drill used to teach ideal hand positioning by University of Wisconsin La-Crosse Head Coach, Dave Malecek, is the ‘Hand Fight Drill.’ Working on these techniques will help your wrestlers get to their leg attacks or takedowns.

Hand Fight Drill

For the first 30 seconds of the drill, the wrestlers are hand fighting, and for the last 30 seconds of the drill, the wrestlers are takedown drilling.
