Former Olympian, Eric Guerrero, provides you with insight for the single leg defense on the ground. In this sequence, Coach Guerrero has one athlete in the attacking role and one athlete in the defensive role. The defensive athlete is working the skill.
Defense to the single leg begins with the defensive wrestler sliding the attacked leg down and away, “straighten the attacked leg, bend the other leg.” The attacked wrestler needs to rotate his/her hips so the straight and bent legs switch and attacked leg is straight, down and away from the opponent. Second, make sure the hand lock slides up the defensive wrestler’s thigh. Finally, circle away from the locked side.

2x AVCA National Coach of the Year, John Cook, has a couple of his University of Nebraska volleyball players run through a series of defensive movement exercises using medicine balls. Your players will gain strength and balance to be able to move quicker and make more digs. These are great drills that can be done in pairs as well as individually.

Coach John Smith of Oklahoma State University believes a good defense will lead to a potent offense. The theme of his defense is a strong head, hand and hip pressure. In this segment, Coach Smith demonstrates a go behind from the chest lock.
From the front chest lock, one must bring the opponent’s elbow to the mat using a forearm block, then the long arm moves toward the side to be blocked, the forearm goes to the tricep to bring the opponent down to his elbow. Next, step around to beat the elbow on the opposite side. Reach for the hip on that side. To finish the go behind, bring the other leg around, behind his elbows.
