Learn to Wrestle Better in the Top Position!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, December 13, 2013

Mark Manning, 2x Big 12 Wrestling Coach of the Year, demonstrates a chop breakdown to cross-wrist control. You will learn that the top man will need to drive his hips over the near arm and pivot on the front knee as you drive the hips to the hand.

Chop Breakdown

The top man is looking to cause the chop arm to bend. When the arm bends, capture the wrist with the cross hand (the hand around the waist) and pull it to the far hip.

University of Nebraska Head Coach Mark Manning shows you a parallel, “cowboy” ride from flat on the mat to a chicken wing. This is a great series to rack up nearfall points.

Riding and Controlling

Three finishes are shown from here. First, walk the chicken wing over the hips, put your knee in his ribs on the opposite side of the wing and finish with a reverse half nelson. Second, lock a wing with both arms and walk the chicken wing over the opponent’s head. Third, walk the single wing over the head. Coach Manning finishes this segment with a warm up drill to practice getting the chicken wing in effectively.

As the former coach for Jordan Borroughs (World and Olympic Champion), Mark Manning, knows what it takes to be a great wrestler in the top position. You will see how to improve your starts with this jam and chop breakdown.

Instruction: First, line up tight to the opponent’s hips and with chest pressure down on the lower back. Second, on the whistle, get hip to hip, get chest pressure on the upper back and belly pressure down on his lower back. Third, and at the same time, pry out on the outside thigh as one would in a spiral ride and drive into his ribs with that outside shoulder. Fourth, drive with your feet and stay off your knees as you drive the back leg into the opponent’s hips. Finally, chop the near arm by driving the hips over the near arm using the pressure described here. Note that all of his action is taking place at the same time.
