Top Position Techniques to Give You an Edge!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Thursday, October 1, 2015

University of Illinois associate head coach, Mark Perry, presents a few of the techniques he uses from the top position. Moves like the ones in this video are what helped Perry gain an edge over his opponents while he went on to win two NCAA Championships at the University of Iowa.

Top Position Technique

Drill Summary: Coach Perry urges all wrestlers to figure out the top position technique they are comfortable with, then stick to it during all matches. Some of the things he likes to do include: knee to back prior to the whistle, squeeze the opponent prior to the whistle (to take the air out of them), push forward with the inside arm immediately after the whistle and secure a claw inside. No matter what you do, Coach Perry urges you to think “Attack!”
