Learn a Simple Drive & Hit Drill!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, May 1, 2016

Rob Eiter, University of Maryland assistant coach and five-time U.S. Open National Champion, presents a drill that can be used to practice technique during a warm-up. The “Drive & Hit Drill” helps wrestlers learn to attack as they have a baseball grip hold, a position that can transition into a single leg.

Drive & Hit Drill

Drill Summary: Grab the opponent’s wrist in a baseball grip. Next, get your feet working and focus on never letting go of the opponent’s wrist. Drive into your opponent over and over again, working on the angle and timing of your attacks (meet the opponent’s foot as soon as it hits the mat). This drill can be progressed further into letting go of the wrist for a single leg takedown.

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Monday, February 1, 2016

Matt Azevedo, Drexel University head coach and U.S. Open Freestyle National Champion, shows you how to perform an elbow pass high level single. Once a wrestler has mastered the elbow pass, they can move on to attacking the legs of the opponent in hopes of getting a takedown.

Use a Snatch Single Leg to Take Your Opponent Down!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, September 1, 2015

East Kansas Wrestling Club head coach, Eric Akin, advises short wrestlers and heavyweights to get a single leg from a higher position on their opponent’s body. This is a great takedown that will allow athletes to control their opponent and advance further on the attack.

Snatch Single Leg

Drill Summary: To execute a snatch single leg, the wrestler must step once and punch twice, then attack the leg from their feet (not their knees). Remember to stay in a stance and keep your head up, or the opponent will have a better chance of escaping. The next step is to pinch the opponent’s leg between your legs and keep your hands down. From there, reach out and grab their other leg and push forward to the mat for a take down.
