Practice Proper Wrestling Stance and Motion!

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

Without a good stance and motion, a wrestler is vulnerable to attack and can quickly find themselves in an unfavorable situation. Duane Goldman, Indiana University head coach and four time All-American at the University of Iowa, shows you a drill to practice staying in an ideal stance.

Stance & Motion

Drill Summary: To be in a good stance, wrestlers should be on the balls of their feet and stay loose by bouncing up and down. After doing that for a bit, end the drill by putting your feet on the ground and your hands on your knees, then drop your hands and bring them up. Coach Goldman says wrestlers should be comfortable in their stance and only move around by going forward or circling. Moving backward can put you on your heels and open up an opportunity for your opponent to attack. Instead, circle to change direction while avoiding crossing your feet.

Utilize the Front Headlock to Score!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Thursday, May 1, 2014

Duane Goldman has a history of excellence in wrestling.  He is Indiana’s Head Wrestling Coach and was a 4x All-American at the University of Iowa. In this segment the, “Front Headlock, Roll Under”, is a technique that sets up two options to get a takedown or pin.

Front Headlock, Roll Under

The first option is the Headlock Roll into the Half Nelson. The second option refers to the Head-in-the Hole technique.  This could lead to a Cradle Pin. Goldman also gives you options to use if the opponent’s hands and feet are on the mat.

Watch and learn more from this Championship Productions’ DVD “Scoring from Your Feet: The Over/Under Series.” Take a look at additional Wrestling videos on From the Feet.

See how you can score from your feet using the under hook with wrist control. Indiana University Head Coach, Duane Goldman, gives wrestlers another option to get a crackdown using the under hook with wrist control. These techniques and skills would benefit even the most experienced coach for years. 

Over/Under Series

From that position the wrestler could get a Cradle or a Ball and Chain with a Half Nelson.  There is also a possibility to execute a Leg and Arm Turk if the wrestlers’ legs are straight.
