Get More Pins with this Tight Waist Breakdown!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, October 11, 2013

Check out an excellent breakdown of a tight waist hip shift from 4X All-American, Joe LeBlanc. As the all-time wins leader at Wyoming University, Leblanc has some insightful tips to offer you on performing this unique version of a tight waist breakdown.

Instruction: He begins on the whistle, by showing how to use the waist side elbow to hit the opponent in his hip bone and pull the opponent toward his near hip; the force on this breakdown is sideways, not forward. The hand on the elbow pulls on the elbow crease. The back leg pushes (sideways) as the down knee blocks. It is important that the top wrestler not fall to his side. Instead, after executing the hip shift, finish the breakdown by circling to the near side and pinching both of his knees with both of your knees.

Score More Points from the Top Position!

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

University of Maryland Head Coach, Kerry McCoy, provides you with instruction on how to use power and positioning. See how to pin your opponents with a bottom leg turk from a cross knee breakdown.

Cross Knee Breakdown to a Bottom Leg Turk

Instruction: Off the cross knee breakdown, pull the opponent’s bottom leg out and make sure that your shoulder pressure stays on the hip flexor; your hips should be toward his head to get this pressure. Next, secure his foot, grab it and push it down onto the mat. Then, slide the back leg, the turk leg, in knee-deep to the top of his bottom thigh. Immediately slide the front knee up and pinch your legs together to secure the bottom leg. Turn your opponent by elevating the bottom leg with your leg. Push off with the front foot and turn his hips. You will finish parallel to your opponent with your head on the opposite side.

Strengthen Your Defense with These Skillful Moves!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, January 18, 2013

Three-time All American Hudson Taylor gives you everything you need to know to become a successful wrestler in the upper weights. These are the same techniques he used to become Maryland’s first ever three-time All-American and its all-time winningest wrestler.  Learn some great offensive and defensive maneuvers to dominate your opponent.

In this drill the attacking partner will hit leg attacks. The defending partner first blocks only with his head, in an effort to learn to block shots with his head. Next, the defending partner can use his head and his hands/palms. Finally, the defending partner can use his head, hands, and forearms. Taylor emphasizes the ability to “hit” our opponent with our forearms in a legal way. This will discourage our opponent from attacking again. Blocking with the head and hands is essential for all wrestlers and this drill helps develop this skill on the feet.
