Dave Malecek has taken his wrestling program to the NCAA Championships every year he has been coaching at UW-Lacrosse. Watch as Coach Malecek shows you how to be more efficient with your time, learn how to drill the right way and gain confidence in your shots.
Coach Malecek shows you how to drill position, finishes, set-up, and motion as a progressive way of drilling a double leg.
Former All-American and current Head Coach at Virginia, Steve Garland, will show you how to secure more double leg takedowns. The ‘Trail Leg Drill’ is something your wrestlers can practice to work on the setup phase of a double leg.
Avoid going on both legs and using just your arms to get a double leg takedown.
2X World Champion, Terry Brands, shows you how to create seamless transitions from set-up to takedown. Score back points by transitioning from the feet to the turk in any situation.
Instruction: Off of a double leg takedown, if the opponent gets to his belly, the attacking athlete can immediately look to continue his drive, lift the near leg and turk the bottom leg for nearfall points. The attacking athlete can also control the hip bone of the opponent with his far elbow and go immediately into a hip tilt or gut wrench turn. Coach Brands also emphasizes the elbow control of the hip. The hip control is also a key element of going immediately into an ankle lace turn from this position for Freestyle wrestling.
