    WRD-04861A: with Russ Cozart, Brandon (FL) HS Head Coach;
    2014 National Wrestling Coach of the Year by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS);
    2014 Florida 2A High School State Champions; 25x Florida High School State Champs (including 15 in a row); winners of 459 straight wrestling matches (The Streak), 2x National Coach of the Year; 8x Florida Coach of the Year

    "I taught some of this material to our youth team in our Saturday class and the difference was evident in a competition the next day. This has been the single most significant change a DVD has ever brought to our team. We had covered all of the ties previously but the way they are now combined into one seamless drill is nothing short of amazing for our team. - Customer Review

    As wrestling evolves, athletes are getting bigger and stronger, and hand fighting has become a necessity. Hand fighting allows you to control your opponent and control the match.

    Russ Cozart, whose teams have dominated Florida high school wrestling for more than 20 years, shares his hand-fighting techniques and drills in this influential video. In it, you will learn how to post the head, pummel, weave off the shoulders, post and chop, control the wrist and much more.

    This isn't just a few "set-ups" linked together, it's a series of drills that help wrestlers get comfortable with hand fighting on their feet - a position where they'll spend roughly 90% of their time.

    Coach Cozart teaches you hand-fighting positions that you can string together in a barrage of attacks that will create multiple cracks in your opponent's defense and open up takedown opportunities.

    Positions include:

    • Posting the Head - Learn how to put yourself in position to attack the head without opening up your defense. You will learn to "paint" the head and create angles for your takedowns.
    • Pummeling - Learn to pummel in on your opponent to gain inside control, working in head snaps from time to time. You will learn traditional pummeling, as well as weaving the shoulders and the muscles.
    • Wrist Control - Learn how to gain control of your opponent's wrists with a variety of techniques, and learn how to counter your opponent's wrist ties.
    • Posting and Chopping - Learn to post and chop your opponent's arms, allowing you to move from a position of disadvantage to a position of advantage.
    • Passing and Flipping Elbows - Learn to move out of your opponent's collar tie and create scoring opportunities by controlling your opponent's elbows.
    • 2-On-1 - Learn to hand fight your way into a 2-on-1 and how to turn it into a scoring opportunity. You will also learn how to counter your opponent's two on one.
    • Underhooks - Learn hand fighting techniques that will help you gain an advantage with an underhook, along with a technique for hand fighting out of your opponent's underhook.

    These techniques are taught individually, then woven together to create an attacking style of wrestling that will keep your opponents off guard and out of their offensive posture.

    Knowing that your opponent's offense has been neutralized or disengaged will give you more confidence on your feet, and takedowns will become easier and happen more frequently. You will learn how to slip out of these positions and into a variety of takedowns, including: single and double legs, fireman's carries and ankle picks. Coach Cozart teaches other solid takedowns from openings created through hand fighting, such as: the slide by, the slide by to a side headlock, a knock by, a shuck and more.

    This is a great video for younger athletes, but is also very applicable to older athletes who are having a hard time learning to hand fight and who aren't effective in these positions. Coach Cozart's system will work with all athletes because it is very repeatable and easy to implement.

    This video will give you the knowledge, tools and confidence to be a more physical, controlling and dominant wrestler.

    WRD-04861B: with Russ Cozart, Brandon (FL) HS Head Coach;
    2014 National Wrestling Coach of the Year by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS);
    2014 Florida 2A High School State Champions; 25x Florida High School State Champs (including 15 in a row); winners of 459 straight wrestling matches (The Streak), 2x National Coach of the Year; 8x Florida Coach of the Year

    Russ Cozart has produced 22 Florida state high school championships - including 15 in a row. A critical element to those titles was hand fighting.

    Even if your wrestlers have great technique, they may still struggle to escape from the bottom. If your athletes can develop hand fighting skills, they will be successful from the bottom position, even with imperfect technique.

    In this presentation, Coach Cozart shows you a hand-fighting drill sequence that has helped his wrestlers become warriors from the bottom position. With this sequence, a wrestler doesn't have to have the best stand-up or sit out to be successful.

    The hand fighting drill sequence is divided into four drills:

    • Stab and Reach Drill - This drill helps the wrestler keep his elbows in on the bottom position, while helping the top man learn to gain control of his opponent.
    • Getting Away from Underhooks - This drill teaches the bottom wrestler to fight off underhooks from the standing position and the sit out position. This drill is practiced from both sides and eventually works into a hip heist or stand up for the escape or reversal.
    • Protect the Tight Waist - In this drill, Coach Cozart teaches how to remove the tight-waist hand, being careful not to allow the opponent to lock with his opposite hand.
    • Crazy Hands - "Crazy Hands" is a culmination of the other drills. It trains kids to block their opponent's attempts to reach through at a quick pace, which simulates match speed.

    Coach Cozart works on hand fighting skills while escaping the crab ride, the leg ride, the power half, the cross-wrist ride and the chop.

    The most popular escape from the bottom position is the stand up, but it's also one of hardest moves to pull off against a good rider. Coach Cozart's hand fighting drills will prevent many of the problems wrestlers encounter in this position.

    If the top wrestler puts too much pressure on the bottom wrestler, they won't be able to hit their stand up. Coach Cozart teaches a knee slide stand up to deal with this problem. You will also learn how to hit sit outs, rolls and reversals, all made possible with sound hand-fighting skills.

    Coach Cozart's teams have been extremely successful for more than two decades - at one point winning 459 straight wrestling matches - but Cozart admits that his wrestlers struggled to escape from the bottom position, at times. So in 2007, he developed this sequence of hand fighting skills and drills. As a result, his wrestlers rarely get ridden out or fail to escape.

    Now, your athletes can enjoy success while escaping from the bottom, using these great hand-fighting drills and techniques! This video is great for coaches and athletes of all ages and skill levels.

    "I love how Coach Cozart breaks everything down into small building blocks and then links them together later on." - Customer Review

    with Chris Perry,
    2x NCAA Champion and 3x All-American for Oklahoma State University;
    2014 University World Silver Medalist; 2009 Junior Hodge Trophy winner

    Three-time All-American Chris Perry powered his way to two national titles with his tenacious offense. Now, he shares his techniques and tips in this comprehensive video.

    He covers all the important phases of riding and turning with the legs. Perry begins with how to get the legs in and finishes with how to get out of leg rides from your opponent. No longer will you just simply ride your opponent without scoring. Instead, you will be turning opponents with regularity and putting matches away with near falls and pins.

    Breakdowns to Leg Rides

    Learn how to gain an advantage over your opponent as soon as the whistle blows with breakdowns like the spiral ride, the chop, the claw and the choke over. From each of these breakdowns, you will learn how to throw the legs to create the ultimate pressure on your opponent while advancing into your pinning combinations.

    After showing these techniques, Perry details how to control your opponent with the legs using skills essential for mastering leg riding.

    Turns from the Top

    Discover multiple ways to turn your opponent with Chris Perry's unique and relentless style. You will learn the power half, the turk, the reverse crossface, arm bars and arm-bar tilts. You'll see what to do if your opponent closes up when you have their legs and how to use that defense to turn them. Perry will teach you to package these pinning combinations in a way that will keep your opponent off balance and vulnerable to the turn.

    Transitions

    When your opponent is defending one attack, Perry shows how you can easily transition into other attacks to further open up your ability to score from the top position. He demonstrates how to use the legs to transition from one technique to another, as well as how to use the legs to set up arm techniques. For example, Perry goes from turning his opponent and scoring to transitioning into a bar arm series.

    Defending the Legs

    Not only will you learn how to be great at turning with the legs, you'll also be able to escape your opponent's leg offense with Perry's tips for avoiding leg rides. His philosophy is simple: create space and separate your hips from the opponent's hips. This method is just as effective and easily applied to a crackdown position from a Hi-C.

    Your confidence will soar after applying these techniques taught by one of the best wrestlers in the nation. The techniques shown in this video are a difference maker that will transform athletes from struggling riders into top-notch turners and pinners.

  • 11/11/15--22:00: Explosive Escapes
  • with Kevin Dresser,
    Virginia Tech Head Coach;
    2015 ACC Dual Meet Champs; Back-to-Back ACC Tournament Champions (2013-14);
    former Christiansburg (VA) High School Head Coach, 5x Virginia Group AA State Champions;
    1986 NCAA Champion and 2x All-American wrestler at the University of Iowa

    Success on the bottom requires mental toughness and tenacity. More importantly, it requires the knowledge of proper technique. In this video, Kevin Dresser gives you that knowledge and the drills to help you take it to the mat.

    Coach Dresser teaches you how to master the bottom position with concrete technique, broken down into three easy to remember steps: setup, explosiveness and positioning. You will learn how to gain an advantage over your opponent before the whistle even blows. You will then learn proper hand fighting technique, how to seal off your opponent, and how to position yourself for the escape.

    In addition to great conventional technique, Coach Dresser demonstrates unconventional technique that has helped him and the individuals he has coached get that key reversal when needed.

    The Set-Up

    The bottom position begins with the setup. If you don't setup properly, your opponent will have an advantage when the whistle blows, and that can lead to spending a lot of time on bottom with your opponent in control. Coach Dresser demonstrates how to be ready to score on the whistle. Amongst other things, you'll learn to keep a wide base, keep your hips low, and how to be ready to spring into action.

    Explosion Drills

    When the whistle blows, the defensive wrestler has to be ready to explode, and a good setup will help you to get into position. During explosion, hand-fighting skills are imperative. Coach Dresser demonstrates how to simultaneously explode off the whistle and trap the "belly" hand.

    You'll learn to pinch off your opponent and scrape away their hands en route to your escape. Coach Dresser also includes five explosion drills, including the headgear drill, stand up drill, chair drill, change over drill and the fly away drill.

    The drills shown are easily implemented into any practice and can make an average wrestler great in short order if the positions are maintained.

    The Stand-Up

    Getting out from the bottom is essential in wrestling. The stand-up is the best and safest way to get out from bottom. Coach Dresser teaches three stand-ups in this video: an explosion stand-up, a changeover stand-up and a technique to help get to your feet if the opponent puts you to your butt.

    Rolls

    Coach Dresser moves from the conventional to the unconventional with his elevator roll series. Coach Dresser shows how to be sound fundamentally with his take on side rolls and elevator techniques that will throw even the most seasoned top wrestlers off their game. With the elevator series, you'll learn how to position yourself for a reversal and, in many cases, score a five-point move.

    This is a great video for beginning and intermediate wrestlers, but can also be a refresher for upper- level wrestlers and coaches. The information is simple and clear, yet effective. If viewers pay attention to the details Dresser describes in the video and work on the drills to master the technique, they will learn to be successful from the bottom position.

    WRD-04079C: with Ian Assael,

    WRD-04894A: with Mark Perry,
    University of Illinois Associate Head Coach;
    2013 Amateur Wrestling News Division I Assistant Coach of the Year;
    former Cal Poly State University Co-Head Wrestling Coach;
    2x NCAA Champion (4x All American) and 2005 NWCA Rookie of the Year at the University of Iowa; won the Gorrarian Trophy at the 2007 NCAA Tournament

    The international wrestling scene has been dominated in recent years by wrestlers from Russia and Iran. Iran especially has exploded onto the scene, winning the 2012-2015 World Cups and the 2013 World Championship in freestyle wrestling.

    While they traditionally wrestled in a more relaxed, defensive style, they have experienced most of their recent success after switching to an aggressive, attacking style centered around getting to the underhook.

    In spite of their success, the techniques used by wrestlers from Iran and Russia are poorly understood in the United States.

    Illinois Associate Head Coach Mark Perry has extensively studied the techniques of the Iranian and Russian wrestlers, and demonstrates how to effectively use them in collegiate and scholastic wrestling. These techniques are innovative and fundamentally sound. And, if mastered, can change the way wrestlers compete and how they think about match situations.

    Iranian Underhook Series

    The Iranian Series evolved from an underhook, but has slight variations from that which is used in the United States. Coach Perry details the Iranian approach of staying low, keeping the head on the opposite side, and applying heavy pressure. These variations are what help to make this series effective and hard to defend. In this series, you will learn how to:

    • Set your opponent up
    • Dictate your opponent's movements and reactions
    • Disguise your set ups and moves
    • Pressure your opponent into making mistakes

    Coach Perry spends extra time showing how exactly to posture and control in this highly technical position. In nearly every situation, Coach Perry demonstrates an attack that will be nearly impossible for your opponent to stop. While primarily looking to attack a knee pull or snatch single, he also demonstrates options to hit a throw-by or a snap down.

    Opposite Side Attacks

    In order to be successful at the highest levels, wrestlers need to be able to attack both sides of the body from every position. The Iranian underhook series is no different. Coach Perry demonstrates how to attack the far side of the body with a high-crotch, a double, or a drag, when the opponent looks to re-pummel an underhook.

    The Iranians hit some of the most explosive high crotch and double legs attacks. Coach Perry shows how this is not about being explosive but about their set up and positioning. He works through a variety of drills with his wrestlers, showing how to acquire the sensitivity to the opponent's weight distribution and timing that is required to utilize these attacks.

    Russian 2-on-1 Series

    For decades, the Russians have been successful using a 2-on-1 control to win world championships. Coach Perry shows the latest innovations from Russian wrestlers in attacking with the 2-on-1. This series, like its Iranian counterpart, relies on deception and anticipation of your opponent's reaction. Your moves will be based on that reaction. He starts with the traditional use of the position, and then demonstrates the subtle adjustment the Russians have been using to make the position more powerful and controlling.

    Coach Perry demonstrates a set-up to a knee pull that negates the most common and effective defenses to the 2-on-1. To complement the knee pull attack, he demonstrates an ankle pick on the far side of the body. Finally, he shows an unorthodox outside-step fireman's that has the potential to score big points.

    With these two highly effective, easily taught, interconnected series of moves you will find yourself in complete control of the match and your opponent and make him react. Once he reacts, you have a huge arsenal to choose from that will dominate anyone on their feet.

    2x NCAA Champion (4x All American) and 2005 NWCA Rookie of the Year at the University of Iowa; won the Gorrarian Trophy at the 2007 NCAA Tournament

    Mark Perry has a unique perspective on wrestling being born into one of America's foremost wrestling families. The nephew of the legendary John Smith, Perry wrestled for Blair Academy in high school and learned the "Iowa way" while wrestling for Tom Brands at the University of Iowa.

    Good leg riders often devastate their opponents. They wear them down with punishing rides and hammering turns. Countering a good leg rider is a difficult task for many wrestlers. This video will change all of that.

    Coach Mark Perry has taken everything he's learned from his elite mentors and developed a dominating style of leg riding and defending legs. You'll learn how to properly throw the legs and how to turn an opponent with them. You'll also learn how to escape the legs while on bottom.

    Leg Riding

    What separates Coach Perry from other coaches is his ability to highlight key concepts. He understands that concepts are as important as technique, and understanding concepts allows you to improve your game without having to learn hundreds of new moves.

    Coach Perry describes several wrestling scenarios on the mat, and then shows you how to get the legs in to ride and turn an opponent. You won't always win the hustle, but Perry will show you how to win when things go wrong. You'll get a realistic look at how he coaches his wrestlers to win these situations.

    Breakdowns

    The first 15 seconds after the whistle are crucial to maintain control over your opponent and establishing legs. Learning to beat your opponent to the inside will open up all of your breakdown options. You will learn new, creative set ups to classic breakdowns with the leg in such as the baseball grip, the crossface and the far ankle. These are punishing breakdowns that will send an early message to your opponent.

    One Leg In Series

    Learn three variations of the bar-arm tilt that allows you to hit multiple angles, depending on what your opponent does. No matter what your opponent's reaction, you will be able to complete the turn and score back points. Other turns in this series include:

    • Turk - Coach Perry teaches the tricks you will need to make this, already effective turn into an extraordinary turn. You will learn how to use the neck crank to put your opponent in a position where he has to turn to his back.
    • Overhook and Ankle - This cutting-edge move will baffle your opponents as they try to defend the legs. You will learn three variations of this move that allows you to dominate your opponent's entire body, which cuts down on his defensive options.

    Two Leg Series

    Discover how to ride with both legs in and to virtually make your opponent quit on bottom. Coach Perry shows a series of different breakdown that can be used on top to get your opponent your opponent if flat to the mat makes it much easier to get your tilts, turns and pins on top. Coach Perry shows a simple tilt and finishes with a tough power half. This isn't your father's power half. The days of unsuccessfully trying to overpower your opponent from this position are over. You will learn solid, irrefutable technique that will see your turn success rate multiply exponentially.

    Defending Against Leg Riders

    Simply being offensive is not enough. Too many people know how to use and ride the legs. Coach Perry knew, from being so good on top, that if he didn't get out from the legs, there was a strong possibility that he wouldn't make it out of the match. He covers several techniques on how to fight legs and not put yourself in trouble.

    • The Leg Slip - This move will put your opponent on his hip and in danger of losing control.
    • The Leg Slip to a Near-Side Cradle - Your opponent will feel the danger, but will not know what happened to him when you move from having the legs thrown on you, to having him in a near-side cradle looking for the fall.
    • Head Catch - Even if the top man has two legs in, you can put your opponent in a near-fall situation with the head catch. Like the leg slip to a cradle, the head catch will surprise even the best wrestler, as he goes from control to his back in just seconds.
    • Swimming Out of the Power Half - Even if your opponent has the legs in on you and is cranking the power half, you will be able to escape with the swim move. You will learn this simple technique to escape the power half.
    • The nuances of the moves Coach Perry teaches in this video will take you from an ordinary leg rider to a master leg rider. The moves are safe, effective and easy to learn. This is essential technique for anyone wanting to improve their mat skills.

You will learn new, creative set ups to classic breakdowns with the leg in such as the baseball grip, the crossface and the far ankle. These are punishing breakdowns that will send an early message to your opponent.

    One Leg In Series

He covers several techniques on how to fight legs and not put yourself in trouble.

    • The Leg Slip - This move will put your opponent on his hip and in danger of losing control.
    • The Leg Slip to a Near-Side Cradle - Your opponent will feel the danger, but will not know what happened to him when you move from having the legs thrown on you, to having him in a near-side cradle looking for the fall.
    • Head Catch - Even if the top man has two legs in, you can put your opponent in a near-fall situation with the head catch. Like the leg slip to a cradle, the head catch will surprise even the best wrestler, as he goes from control to his back in just seconds.
    • Swimming Out of the Power Half - Even if your opponent has the legs in on you and is cranking the power half, you will be able to escape with the swim move. You will learn this simple technique to escape the power half.
    • The nuances of the moves Coach Perry teaches in this video will take you from an ordinary leg rider to a master leg rider. The moves are safe, effective and easy to learn. This is essential technique for anyone wanting to improve their mat skills.

    with Mark Perry,
    University of Illinois Associate Head Coach;
    2013 Amateur Wrestling News Division I Assistant Coach of the Year;
    former Cal Poly State University Co-Head Wrestling Coach;
    2x NCAA Champion (4x All American) and 2005 NWCA Rookie of the Year at the University of Iowa; won the Gorrarian Trophy at the 2007 NCAA Tournament

    The international wrestling scene has been dominated in recent years by wrestlers from Russia and Iran. Iran especially has exploded onto the scene, winning the 2012-2015 World Cups and the 2013 World Championship in freestyle wrestling.

    While they traditionally wrestled in a more relaxed, defensive style, they have experienced most of their recent success after switching to an aggressive, attacking style centered around getting to the underhook.

    In spite of their success, the techniques used by wrestlers from Iran and Russia are poorly understood in the United States.

    Illinois Associate Head Coach Mark Perry has extensively studied the techniques of the Iranian and Russian wrestlers, and demonstrates how to effectively use them in collegiate and scholastic wrestling. These techniques are innovative and fundamentally sound. And, if mastered, can change the way wrestlers compete and how they think about match situations.

    Iranian Underhook Series

    The Iranian Series evolved from an underhook, but has slight variations from that which is used in the United States. Coach Perry details the Iranian approach of staying low, keeping the head on the opposite side, and applying heavy pressure. These variations are what help to make this series effective and hard to defend. In this series, you will learn how to:

    • Set your opponent up
    • Dictate your opponent's movements and reactions
    • Disguise your set ups and moves
    • Pressure your opponent into making mistakes

    Coach Perry spends extra time showing how exactly to posture and control in this highly technical position. In nearly every situation, Coach Perry demonstrates an attack that will be nearly impossible for your opponent to stop. While primarily looking to attack a knee pull or snatch single, he also demonstrates options to hit a throw-by or a snap down.

    Opposite Side Attacks

    In order to be successful at the highest levels, wrestlers need to be able to attack both sides of the body from every position. The Iranian underhook series is no different. Coach Perry demonstrates how to attack the far side of the body with a high-crotch, a double, or a drag, when the opponent looks to re-pummel an underhook.

    The Iranians hit some of the most explosive high crotch and double legs attacks. Coach Perry shows how this is not about being explosive but about their set up and positioning. He works through a variety of drills with his wrestlers, showing how to acquire the sensitivity to the opponent's weight distribution and timing that is required to utilize these attacks.

    Russian 2-on-1 Series

    For decades, the Russians have been successful using a 2-on-1 control to win world championships. Coach Perry shows the latest innovations from Russian wrestlers in attacking with the 2-on-1. This series, like its Iranian counterpart, relies on deception and anticipation of your opponent's reaction. Your moves will be based on that reaction. He starts with the traditional use of the position, and then demonstrates the subtle adjustment the Russians have been using to make the position more powerful and controlling.

    Coach Perry demonstrates a set-up to a knee pull that negates the most common and effective defenses to the 2-on-1. To complement the knee pull attack, he demonstrates an ankle pick on the far side of the body. Finally, he shows an unorthodox outside-step fireman's that has the potential to score big points.

    With these two highly effective, easily taught, interconnected series of moves you will find yourself in complete control of the match and your opponent and make him react. Once he reacts, you have a huge arsenal to choose from that will dominate anyone on their feet.

    with Jesse Delgado,
    2x National Champion, 3x All-American, 2x Big Ten Champion for the University of Illinois

    Understanding how to wrestle through funk position has become increasingly important to both the offensive and defensive wrestler, as more wrestlers have acquired an advanced understanding of scrambling and have developed new techniques in those positions.

    Jesse Delgado, two-time NCAA champion at the University of Illinois, made expert use of funk positions throughout his collegiate career. In this video, Delgado shares his unique take on a variety of basic and advanced techniques that will give your wrestlers the edge on their competition.

    Single Leg Finishes

    The best set-ups and penetration will be wasted if a wrestler can't finish his shots. Conversely, even a sloppy shot can be salvaged with a strong finish. Delgado starts by teaching basic single leg finishes, emphasizing proper positioning and avoiding the opponent's attempts at scrambling. He shows unique adjustments to these finishes to counter common reactions that give even the best wrestlers trouble.

    Delgado shows his backdoor finishing series, which he used to finish most of his single legs attempts against the toughest competition in the country. You'll get his take on the position, which is different to a standard drive across and involves less hand switches, and how to finish when the opponent traps an arm.

    Attacking the Opposite Side

    To be a great wrestler you need to be able to attack both sides of the body. Delgado shows several high crotch set-ups for when he encounters stiff resistance to his head-inside single. He teaches several game-changing details to the entrance from the inside and outside ties, as well as a uncommon entrance against his opponent's underhook. Finally, he shows his unique low-shot entrance into the crackdown, with key details for avoiding the common scrambles in that position.

    Single Leg Defense

    Even the most aggressive wrestler will find himself with his opponent in on his legs. Before the opponent gets to your legs the first line of defense must be your head and hands. Delgado shows an excellent drill to train the heads and hands deal with the three most common leg attacks.

    Delgado teaches a number of techniques that made it very difficult to score on him at the collegiate level and helped him win two National Championships.

    UL>
  • Single leg defense - Delgado focuses on three moves, whizzer, Funk Roll and Carry Cradle. The whizzer features a unique baseball slide approach to the common kick-out defense. He shows an easy way to teach wrestlers how to enter the funk roll, which is one of Delgado's signature "funk" moves that helped make him such a great wrestler. With the Carry Cradle, you can get a takedown, back points or even a fall.
  • High crotch defense - Delgado teaches how to slip the shoulder in order to force the crackdown. This is an innovative roll-through series that will avoid the scrambles and stalemates that many wrestlers attempt.
  • Every technique shown is a difference-maker that can be adapted very quickly, that few of your wrestlers' opponents will be familiar with.

    Getting off the bottom is essential to being successful in wrestling.

    Ian Assael, Camp Director at Ken Chertow Wrestling, gives you the technique you need to score from the bottom against tough opponents. Maintaining shoulder-knee alignment is essential for getting weight off of the bottom man's hands, which is critical for standing up, as well as executing reversals.

    Coach Assael starts off detailing the proper position from the bottom, then goes through the mechanics of a proper stand-up step-by-step. He focuses on recovery using the knee-slide technique, which is an essential skill for all wrestlers, as they will not always escape off the whistle. Coach Assael shows a knee-slide to a stand-up with back pressure when the top man pushes forward.

    member of the U.S. National Freestyle Wrestling Team;
    2008 NCAA Champion at Pittsburgh; 2x All American; 2x EWL Wrestler of the Year; 120 collegiate wins

    This underhook series will help you improve your offense on your feet from one of the most dominant ties in wrestling. U.S. National Freestyle wrestler Keith Gavin presents his underhook takedown series from tie-up to finish. He presents takedowns from both the lead leg side as well as the opposite leg side.

    No matter what your opponent's reaction, Coach Gavin offers a scoring option for the offensive wrestler. Rather than providing several different variations off a single position, Coach Gavin breaks decision making into a series of simple reads: always do A unless he does X, in which case you do B. Instead of just a few new moves, you'll get an extremely effective system for attacking with underhooks.

    Being able to use an underhook off your strong side is the most fundamental of skills. Coach Gavin shares a solid series of attacks from this position, as well as entries into the position. The series starts with a throw-by to a single leg takedown. This first takedown is presented with a high-level finish, as well as low-level finishes on the mat when your opponent counters with a whizzer. Coach Gavin adds options for a double leg takedown, as well as a front headlock option to a go-behind to be used when the single leg is not available.

    Coach Gavin also gives four takedowns to use when you get into the even more dominant, double underhook position. You will be able to score with a throw-by, snap/front headlock, a footsweep or a modified arm drag from double underhooks.

    Opponents will often grab collar ties or wrists to try and slow down an opponent. Coach Gavin shows some of his signature drags to deal with this scenario. In addition, you'll see some of his favorite takedowns from an opposite lead leg, including a high-crotch, front headlock to a go-behind, a shrug, inside trip and an arm drag.

    This is an excellent series that teaches the most of the fundamentals of an underhook as well as some slightly less common positions that are very specific to coach Coach Gavin's game.

    WRD-04532A: with Mark Ironside,
    2x NCAA Champ and 4x All-American at the University of Iowa; 1998 Dan Hodge Trophy winner

    Hand fighting is an essential wrestling skill. Two-time National Champion Mark Ironside shares drills for becoming an effective hand fighter and, in turn, a more dangerous wrestler on your feet.

    Hand fighting is about moving your opponent so that you can set up your attacks. Coach Ironside takes a novel approach to the skill: He believes that a level of high intensity and complete domination must be maintained throughout the match. He stresses that wrestlers should set a fast pace and maintain it throughout the match.

    Coach Ironside covers the basic strategy of hand fighting in the neutral position, such as not reaching, keeping elbows close, using heavy hands, applying constant pressure and immediately re-attacking. He demonstrates how to correctly close the gap when hand fighting, which maintains a good position and makes it easier to move an opponent.

    He shares several drills for quickly improving positioning, including a push-pull drill that teaches wrestlers to move their hands and feet together. From these hand fighting techniques, Coach Ironside shows how to get and use four control ties, such as the 2-1, double inside tie and inside tie/wrist combination. He shows ways to control and clear these ties that will move your opponent. Each of these ties works together to create a potent offense that will exhaust your opponent. While demonstrating these ties, Coach Ironside also shows several takedowns.

    Finally, Coach Ironside demonstrates how to drill hand fighting with a partner and how to clear a front head lock.

    Don't just hand fight; use it to create an offense that cannot be beat! Let Mark Ironside show you how to enhance your hand fighting skills to score from the neutral position.

He also shares six effective turns from these breakdowns, explaining the best option to use depending on how the bottom man reacts. He demonstrates a base drill to make wrestlers work both sides of their opponent, training them to flow from one breakdown to another until the opponent is exhausted. This also serves as a great conditioning drill.

    He concludes the video by demonstrating how to return an opponent to the mat once they reach their feet. You'll see two versions-- how to bring him to the mat by elevating him and another by rotating him down from his hips.

    Get help developing a multitude of practice plans that will maximize your wrestler's performance on the mat.

    Hall of Fame Coach Greg Strobel is a leader in coaching education. In this video, Coach Strobel shares many insights from his illustrious career that will provide you with a foundation on which to plan your practices. His discussion covers a wide range of topics including practice length, intensity, and the three main aspects of wrestling.

    Identifying your core philosophy will help you to plan your practices (and your program) around what you believe is most important. Coach Strobel emphasizes how your core philosophy drives not only how you run a practice, but what you want your athletes to get out of it. He believes that having fun is extremely important and that you don't have to break an athlete in order to get a top performance from them.

    Coach Strobel is a master at making a practice plan and laying it out in easy to digest bite-sized pieces that can be combined in multiple variations for an unending supply of practices. He then talks about five areas to consider when developing practices: length of practice, intensity of practice, three principles of planning (technical skill, athletic skill, and fitness level), week at a glance, and peaking.

    Strobel then reveals several of his trademark workouts:

    • Pre-Combat Options - Five different combinations of Warm-up and Drilling.
    • Combat Options - 11 different combinations of types of live wrestling.
    • Post-Combat Options - Different choices of cool down exercises.
    Varying practices is very important to keep your wrestlers fresh and excited about attending practice. By mixing and matching these options, the user can develop hundreds of different practice plans based on the level of intensity and volume you require.

    This enables you to see the principles of practice planning applied in the practice room and allows you to see one of his favorite practice formats.

    This DVD is an essential tool for novice wrestling coaches or experienced coaches looking to enhance their practices and give their wrestlers the edge they need.

    YWD-04220C: with Tom Koch, Strength and Conditioning Coach for Lehigh Valley Athletic Club, former Lehigh University Assistant Coach, EIWA Champion ('96) at Lehigh

    When coaching the developing wrestler, strength & conditioning is vital to their success. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to see the strength and conditioning philosophy of one of the most storied wrestling programs in the entire country.

    Lehigh has always been known for their exceptional strength and conditioning and in this video, Tom Koch walks through the fundamentals of athletic training and demonstrates a myriad of exercises to help enhance your athlete's speed, power and conditioning.

    Coach Koch begins with an informative overview of the principals of athletic training and how it translates to training the developing wrestler. Koch then talks about the importance of the following concepts:

    • Speed - Changing direction and quickness
    • Power - Maximizing force quickly
    • Conditioning - Small short bursts, starting and stopping quickly
    Agility Ladder Training
    According to Coach Koch, the perfect tool for agility training in wrestling is the agility ladder. You'll see more than 15 different drills including variations for each, for linear movement, lateral movement, plyometrics and upper body workouts. These drills help develop foot speed, coordination and "fast twitch" muscle fibers, as well as condition your athletes. You'll also see how to adapt those same agility ladder drills to develop hand speed. Your team will be able to work the entire body using the same movements to develop footwork.

    Plyometric Training
    Koch demonstrates several plyometric exercises designed to increase your wrestlers' functional power. He discusses common misconceptions with plyometrics that can hinder an athlete's performance improvement. There are more than 20 exercises demonstrated by Coach Koch in this section of the video, including different types of pushups, box exercises, plyometric jumps and core strength with the medicine ball.

    These drills incorporate conditioning into their in strength building. This carries over perfectly to wrestling since many matches require both strength/power and strength endurance in order to be successful.

    Coach Koch demonstrates, with young athletes, how these workout drills can be extremely challenging and fun at the same time. Often times athletes don't even know that they are being trained due to the change of pace and fun in completing these exercises. These are exercises that can be done by any age athlete that will push their sports development to new heights.

    The use of non-traditional items within your gym will lend greatly to improving strength and body control. This video is a great tool for coaches, parents, and athletes who want to improve their strength and general body control!

    WRD-05313A:

    with Bill Zadick,
    US National Freestyle Head Coach;
    2018 UWW World Cup Champions (Freestyle);
    2017 World Team Champions (Men's Freestyle);
    2006 Freestyle World Champion, 1996 NCAA Division I National Champion (University of Iowa)

    and Jon Pfeifer,
    University of Nebraska Wrestling Strength Coach; NSCA-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist

    Ever wonder what the difference is between the American freestyle and what's happening on the international scene? In this video, USA Men's National Freestyle Coach Bill Zadick breaks down the major trends in international wrestling that allowed the Men's National Freestyle team to capture their first team World Championship since 1995.

    Additionally, Jon Pfeifer breaks down the approach he has used at the University of Nebraska to produce of one of the toughest, best-conditioned teams in the NCAA. He walks you through their approach for each phase of the year and how he works with different weight classes and builds specific lifting programs for them during the season to help build or maintain strength.

    On the Mat: Trends in International Wrestling

    For many wrestlers and coaches in America, NCAA wrestlers are the most studied and imitated. Relatively little attention is paid to the techniques and trends in the broader world of freestyle wrestling, where the best wrestlers in the world compete.

    Bill Zadick has been through it all, from winning a National Title to winning a World Championship. He has coached the best in the world and now brings his insight to you. Coach Zadick has broken down international freestyle wrestling to see what other countries are doing to gain the advantage.

    Head Positioning

    Too often, coaches focus simply on maintaining a good stance, when in fact the most important thing to do is to control the head position battle. Using the example of Iranian wrestlers, Zadick breaks down an approach that will allow wrestlers to keep opponents off their legs while creating their own angles. He also shows a variety of drills and hand fighting methods that will create angles that allow for leg attacks against the fastest and most disciplined opponents.

    Underhook Defense

    The underhook is the most advantageous control tie in the current world of freestyle wrestling, as it allows the underhooking wrestler to push forward, scoring push outs and controlling the center of the mat for shot clock purposes. Zadick breaks down the drills being used by national team wrestlers to prevent leg attacks and clear the tie quickly. He puts special emphasis on the current methodology being used by the national team to prevent push outs.

    Par Terre Defense

    Par Terre is an area of freestyle wrestling where Americans have traditionally struggled - it's completely different from the mat wrestling found in folkstyle. Zadick breaks down the finer details of hip movement and scooting that are necessary to prevent an experienced and skilled opponent from completing a gut wrench turn.

    Coach Zadick breaks down the trends in the modern freestyle world, with many ideas into how one can incorporate this into developing your program and athletes for both the short and long term. He also provides many cutting edge insights into the techniques, approaches and styles of the current national team members, and many other international competitors.

    Lecture: Year-Round Strength Training for Wrestling

    Strength and conditioning plays a key role in the performance of any wrestler, whether it's the strength to finish a takedown or complete a stand-up, the quickness and explosiveness needed for a high-level shot, or the endurance required to fight through the third period and overtimes.

    Managing Different Phases in a Yearly Cycle

    Too often, coaches and wrestlers make the mistake of trying to tackle everything at once: strength, size, explosiveness, conditioning and wrestling skill. University of Nebraska Wrestling's Strength Coach, Jon Pfeifer, explains that this is impossible, and that these skills need to be emphasized during different parts of the year. Breaking the year down into four seasons - pre-season, in-season, post-season, and off-season - he explains how to tackle weight training and conditioning during each phase, and how to balance time on the wrestling mat and in the weight room during each season.

    Wrestling Specific Training

    Frequently, strength programs are adopted from templates designed for football or power lifting. They don't account for the unique demands of wrestling, specifically the overwhelming importance of training grip and neck strength. Pfeifer explains how they approach training these muscles, which frequently require a different approach than lifts like squats or deadlifts. He delves further into how they have programmed other wrestling-specific workouts, like banded resistance shots, weighted stance and motion drills, and footwork drills.

    Coach Pfeifer details a specific approach to training wrestlers year-round (in fact, over multiple years), to get the most out of time spent in the weight room. Additionally, he gives you the tools to make your own decisions and adjustments in order to fulfill your program's needs.

    WRD-05313B:

    with Matt Meuleners,
    Brown University Assistant Coach;
    former University of Nebraska Assistant Coach;
    Back-to-Back NCAA D-II National Champion and 4x All-American at Northern State University

    and Lindsey Remmers,
    Director of Performance Nutrition at the University of Nebraska; works specifically with the University of Nebraska wrestling team

    Matt Meuleners shows you the tricks and techniques he used to win two NCAA D-II titles. He demonstrates multiple attacks - focusing heavily on the high crotch and single leg - from multiple tie-ups and positions. Although the technique is designed for heavyweights, it is applicable to athletes of all sizes. His skill set is universal and he's masterful at teaching the little details that make it so effective for everyone.

    Lindsey Remmers has been working specifically with the Nebraska wrestling team. Therefore, she understands the constant need of wrestlers to maintain their weight and the rigors and demands of the sport. She presents a deeper understanding of the importance of correct eating habits and strategies to ensure your wrestlers are able to always make weight in a safe and effective manner - without draining them and optimizing their peak performance.

    On the Mat: Shot setups from ties, defense and short-offense

    Coach Meuleners learned to use his size and skill to defeat some of the toughest wrestlers in the nation. He breaks down his best techniques for positions that heavyweights notoriously use to slow matches down.

    Collar Ties

    Learn how to get an inside tie when your opponent collar ties you, and how to adjust your stance so your posture doesn't get broken down. From the inside tie, you will learn a couple of offensive options depending on the reactions of your opponent.

    From offensive collar ties, you will see how to get to a single leg when your opponent tries to get an inside tie, and how to get to a high crotch after switching to another collar tie with your opposite hand.

    Modified 2-on-1

    The modified 2-on-1 resembles a reverse arm drag in regard to hand position. This tie is great because as you circle into it, you have an excellent chance of getting deep into a high crotch, which is low risk and requires minimal effort; or, if your opponent squares up as you are circling in, he presents you with the opportunity to get a snatch single.

    Underhooks

    The number one move for a heavyweight from an underhook should be the snatch single on the same side. Meuleners goes into detail on how to get to the snatch single and finish it. If your opponent has head position, he shows how to easily snap the opponent down and get to a front head lock.

    As a smaller heavyweight, Meuleners became well-versed on how to clear underhooks and turn them to his advantage. He demonstrates three easy and simple ways to clear and get out of the underhook.

    Leg Attack Defense and Counter Offense

    Meuleners will explain why the common reaction of pulling your leg back while trying to defend either of them is incorrect. After successfully defending the leg attack, Meuleners combines this with a section on short offense. He demonstrates ways to score when:

    • Your opponent starts standing.
    • Your opponent grabs the elbow you are using to hold the front head lock.
    • Your opponent starts quad podding.

    Lecture: Nutrition for Wrestling

    Lindsey Remmers dispels outdated, dangerous methods of weight-cutting and sheds new light on how to make weight in a safe manner that optimizes performance and eliminates the feeling of hunger, which plagues most wrestlers when it comes time to make weight.

    Remmers illustrates the importance of eating proper meals throughout the day, and how this optimizes an athlete's muscle mass, reduces the level of body fat, and prevents the temptation to binge eat. Explanations are given on how consistently eating right can help wrestlers lose weight, and dispels the misconception that eating frequently hinders weight loss, when it actually speeds up metabolism. She provides examples of what could be consumed during the day at breakfast, pre-workout meals, and post-workout meals.

    Recovery

    It's common for wrestlers to skip eating something immediately after practice, for fear of gaining weight. Scientific studies are used to show that consuming carbohydrates and proteins during the early phases of recovery will positively affect exercise performance. Remmers also dispels the common misunderstanding that you must consume the largest portion of protein after working out, stressing that for optimal muscle building, protein should be consumed throughout the day.

    Weight Loss and Weight Gain

    Since dehydration plays such a big part in weight-cutting and wrestling culture in general, Remmers provides recommendations on what percentage wrestlers should stay above their weight division hydrated to make for an easy cut. If they follow the recommendations carefully, then when it comes time to cut weight, they will have roughly 1 to 2 pounds to lose.

    Graphs are displayed to give an example of the eating and hydration pattern a wrestler should follow when they are either trying to gain weight and move up a weight class, or lose weight. Additionally, several tips that adhere to safe practices for in-season weight-making are provided to help wrestlers lose any extra weight they might be concerned about. This will teach wrestlers how to eat correctly, maintain a feeling of satiety throughout the day, and perform optimally come competition time.
