Foot Fight to Prevent the Opponent from Locking!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Wednesday, July 1, 2015

University of Virginia head coach, Steve Garland, says his favorite drill of all-time is the “Foot Fighting Drill”. In this clip, coach Garland shows you the drill and how to move your feet to keep opposing wrestlers from riding your legs.

Foot Fighting Drill

Drill Summary: This drill is to be used to prevent leg riders from ever getting a lock on your legs. Without an opponent on you, work on a “windshield wiper” movement with both of your legs, moving them back and forth with your hands and knees on the ground. Add an opponent and have them try to lock either of your legs, then work on sliding your feet under theirs and avoiding the lock.

Score Big Points with a Cradle from the Single Leg!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, March 1, 2015

In this clip, 2010 ACC Coach of the Year Steve Garland shows you how to hit a cradle from an inside single leg. As a former ACC Wrestler of the Year, Garland has been able to use the cradle from just about any position, including the offensive neutral position, top position and when an opponent decides to shoot.

Cradle from Head Inside Single

Drill Summary: From the head inside single position, execute a “knockout punch” (throw the arm down) to get the opponent on the mat. Expecting the opponent to come up, the wrestler relocates their grip to the knee. If the opponent stays down, the wrestler drives their knee through the opponent’s face, brings their other hand over the opponent’s head and drops the knee into the cradle.
