Bond Shymansky is the former Marquette University Volleyball Head Coach and he provides clear instruction on the performance, strategy and purpose behind this drill. Coach Shymansky explains why traditional pepper creates several problems and how this drill addresses these issues.
In this drill involving three players, players have to work together against the hitter and the warm up evolves into a much more random, game-like fashion than traditional pepper, which tends to be more linear.

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.
