Use Proper Defense Against the Funk!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Jordan Leen, assistant coach of 2015 ACC Tournament champion Virginia, does a great job of teaching his wrestlers how to defend against the funk. Leen knows that wrestlers need to remain disciplined and protected to triumph, and in this clip you’ll learn some of the techniques that have led to the Cavaliers’ success.

Wrestler Disciplines and Protections

Drill Summary: From any leg attack, it’s important for wrestlers to keep their feet tucked back under their hips so the opponent can’t ankle pass. It’s also key to keep weight the your hips, not the hands. If the opponent does pass the ankle, the wrestler can bring their other foot over to be able to to sit on the ankles and glide. From there, the wrestler can hover while keeping their weight back.

Jordan Leen, 2008 NCAA Champion at Cornell, goes over a segment called “Drills.” He teaches both Inside and Outside Locks and explains that wrestlers may be able to set up different locks on their own, in their own way to get to the perfect lock. He also demonstrates how to climb up from a False Lock to a Relock.


Jordan stresses that to be good at this technique one must be able to use their feet like hands.

In this segment 2008 NCAA Champion at Cornell, Jordan Leen, goes through three different set-ups. The set-ups you will see involve using the “Claw”, “Ankle Elevator”, and “Tilt.”  Discover the keys of each technique in the following clip.


The use of the “Claw” technique is ideal for a weaker wrestler because it enables him to use his weight to control and execute this technique on an opponent. The emphasis on the “Ankle Elevator” is to elevate the ankles so that you can place your safe leg in place, open up the opponents’ hips to execute the short leg.
