Ken Chertow, three time NCAA All-American at Penn State University, loves to use the frontal assault position to control his opponents. Chertow knew he wasn’t the quickest wrestler, so he had to find other ways to shoot, and this position was one of the most effective for him due to its versatility.
Frontal Assault Position
Drill Summary: The drilling wrestler begins this technique by sprawling on top of a partner. From there, the wrestler can get a front headlock, underhook, front quarter, snake and many other effective moves. Coach Chertow stresses using this position as a strong wrestler, as being aggressive is the key to success.

Don Showalter has been one of the most successful coaches in his profession and always creates a defensive minded team. If you’re looking for drills to create that mindset, Coach Showalter gives you two drills in the following clip that will do just that. In the first drill, Coach uses a simple two line passing drill in the full-court starting at the three-point line. The second drill is a basic two line fast break drill.
Position and Fundamental Footwork Drills
Player Movements: In the first drill, players execute a good, solid chest pass and then sprint to the corner of the baseline to execute the proper defensive stance and slide. In the second drill, the rebounder outlets the ball and sprints the length of the court to receive a pass for an outlet. The scorer now becomes a full-court defender in a one on one situation.
Drill Essentials: Focus on building the proper fundamentals in guarding within the full court, while gaining a mindset for a full court pressure defensive team.
1) Proper Defensive Stance and Slide
2) Good, Solid Passing
4) Head Up
5) Active Hands
