Learn to Get a Collar Tie as a Heavyweight!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Monday, June 1, 2015

To set up offense, learning to use the collar tie is essential for the heavyweight wrestler. In this drill, University of Maryland head coach, Kerry McCoy, shows you how he gets opponents in a collar tie.

Collar Tie

Drill Summary: The wrestler starts in a good stance and makes sure to protect their lead leg. As the opponent comes closer, the wrestler reaches with the hand opposite their lead leg and jabs the opponent’s forehead or shoulder. The next step is to slide that hand into the collar tie position, while simultaneously closing the gap between your bodies. It’s important to not close the gap too far or the opponent could take advantage of the bad position.

Once the opponent is flat, use the waist hand to secure the cross wrist and keep the elbow hand on the elbow.

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.
