Kerry McCoy, Head Coach at the University of Maryland and 2X Olympian in Freestyle shows you how to perform tilts in the top position. Learn the proper techniques of the tilt with the thigh pry and tight waist breakdown.
Once the opponent is flat, use the waist hand to secure the cross wrist and keep the elbow hand on the elbow. Next, block the near knee with your front knee and drive over the near arm/shoulder to “load up” the opponent in your lap. Then scoot your body so that your chest is perpendicular to his chest elevate the bottom leg and use the controlled arm to keep him/her in nearfall. Push if he rolls into you and pull if he rolls away.

Kerry McCoy, Head Coach at the University of Maryland and 2X Olympian in Freestyle, demonstrates some excellent techniques to improve your wrestling. Watch and learn as McCoy covers his version of a near arm chop breakdown. He gets set in the top position in a way that shifts the weight onto the opponent’s hands and emphasizes having one’s feet in a position to drive.
First, twist and pull in on the near elbow. Next, pry the far thigh and drive with your feet to put maximum chest pressure on the opponent’s back, then drive the rear knee to get the weight forward and to drive the hips flat.
