The goal of this series is to get the opponent into an uncomfortable position where they fight to get out of it and flip onto their back where you can then move to pin them.

Kerry McCoy, Head Coach at the University of Maryland and 2X Olympian in Freestyle shows you how to perform tilts in the top position. Learn the proper techniques of the tilt with the thigh pry and tight waist breakdown.


Once the opponent is flat, use the waist hand to secure the cross wrist and keep the elbow hand on the elbow. Next, block the near knee with your front knee and drive over the near arm/shoulder to “load up” the opponent in your lap. Then scoot your body so that your chest is perpendicular to his chest elevate the bottom leg and use the controlled arm to keep him/her in nearfall. Push if he rolls into you and pull if he rolls away.

Take a look at an additional clip from the DVD, Heavyweight Technique: Breakdowns, Pins and Escapes.  Also, view other Kerry McCoy videos from our massive Wrestling DVD collection!
