    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 and 4x All American at the University of Iowa

    Learn to turn and pin any opponent you face.

    For the first-time ever, two time NCAA Champion Mark Perry passes along the techniques and strategies that made him a dominating force from the top position.

    Coach Perry begins with an in-depth look at his favorite pinning technique - the Claw Series. Perry shows you how to beat your opponent inside quicker and the best way to ensure success no matter which way your opponent turns his head. Once secured, Perry gives you six different combinations you can use to earn back points or a fall. These moves range from simple to advanced and work with any style of wrestler. What makes this series so effective, is that Perry shows you how to use these moves in combination. So, if your opponent is able to stop one attack, you can flow easily into another combination to score. Never give up a fall again!

    In addition, Perry shows you a pinning technique with both legs in that will secure a fall every time, as well as pinning combinations from the "far side" of the claw and three cradle options.

    with Steve Garland, University of Virginia Head Coach;
    2015 and 2010 ACC Champions; 2010 ACC Coach of the Year;
    All-American Wrestler at Virginia; 2000 ACC Wrestler of the Year; member of the 50th Anniversary ACC Wrestling Team

    The cradle position can be hit from anywhere - not just from the top. In this highly instructional presentation, Steve Garland shows a complete cradle series from all positions. He teaches a variety of cradle techniques from a defensive position in the neutral position. He then covers cradles from an offensive position on your feet, and cradles from the traditional top position. Finally, Coach Garland shows drills to be used for cradles and pinning in general.

    How to Cradle Your Opponent when They Shoot on You
    The most common attack in both folkstyle and freestyle wrestling is the single leg. Learning baseline defense is the most important skill but being able to go straight for points will give you a massive edge over the competition. Coach Garland demonstrates how to turn your opponent's offense into your offense, enabling your wrestler to score in bunches. Cradle finishes are covered from the single leg defense with the head inside, head outside single defense, and off of a low single leg attempt by your opponent. All his attacks come from a philosophical change of getting the legs back to attacking into the man. This change allows you to score almost at will from your feet.

    Cradle from the Offensive Neutral Position
    In the second segment, Coach Garland demonstrates how to offensively attack from the feet with the cradle. This includes options from a front headlock and a re-shot. The front headlock is a game changer in itself but when you add Coach Garland's cradle series to it, you can become unbeatable on your feet. He shows how to use the body's natural movement patterns to set up the cradle. Once you get down the positioning, you can almost always score.

    Cradle from the Top Position
    Finally, Coach Garland demonstrates the traditional approach to scoring with a cradle from the top position. This segment includes breakdowns, setups and finishing techniques for cross-face and near-side cradles. Although there is one dominant way to attack with the cradle, Coach Garland demonstrates his spin on hand positioning and where the legs are relative to the bottom man so that he gets a fall every time.

    All positions in wrestling require drilling and muscle memory in order to make them work. Coach Garland does a fantastic job of showing this throughout the presentation. You'll see drills from the feet as well as drills from the classic top position. There's also a series of pinning drills that focuses on an "always look for the fall" mentality.

    This is a fantastic set with a lot of useful information that allows coaches and wrestlers to become prolific cradling wrestlers. Coach Garland brings great teaching style to the presentation, making it easy for everyone to understand the subtle nuances that make this series unique. The tech fall and pin points resulting from these techniques will help your team become a better dual and tournament team.

    with Coleman Scott;
    University of North Carolina Head Coach;
    2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist;
    2008 NCAA Champion and 4x All American at Oklahoma State; 2x USA Junior Freestyle National Champion; 3x-time Pennsylvania HS State Champion

    The ankle pick is a highly effective move that becomes more devastating as a wrestler becomes more comfortable with hand fighting and tie ups. Olympic bronze medalist, Coleman Scott, demonstrates his patented Ankle Pick Series, with an emphasis placed on perfecting the setups to finish on either side of your opponent's body.

    There are many ways to finish shots, but getting a proper setup is a key fundamental stressed in this video. Coach Scott demonstrates four setups to use to hit the ankle pick. This variety allows you to react to whatever defensive tactic you encounter. The four setups you'll see are the over tie, collar tie, elbow control and 2-on-1. All of the attacks transition from a rocker step - not circling. They are all extremely effective and will lead to scores or favorable scrambles for anyone who spends time working on them.

    Over Tie Series

    Coach Scott favors the unorthodox over tie to set up his traditional ankle pick. Whether you use a traditional head on the opposite side approach, or your opponent forces you to attack the same side, the key is always to use a rocker step to keep your feet in a position to shoot to whichever leg your opponent gives you. As with most good setups, proper positioning and push/pull motion opens up the opportunity for a finish: cross ankle pick, same-side ankle pick, single leg, or low single leg.

    Collar Tie Series

    The Collar Tie Series is one that Scott developed when his opponents started studying film and would not allow him to get to his Over Tie Series. Coach Scott presents a number of set-ups to get to the opponent's ankle/heel in order to take a high percentage shot. The finish will depend on how your opponent reacts to being moved.

    Elbow and 2-on-1 Series

    A student of John Smith's, Coach Scott uses an elbow tie to set up his duck under. Sometimes, the threat of the duck under is enough to act as a misdirection of sorts, allowing you to set up a near side leg attack when your opponent expects you to attack the outside leg. Similarly, traditional hip-in positioning to a 2-on-1 (Russian tie) can be used to first "catch" and then attack your opponent's ankle, allowing for a clean dump.

    By learning the positioning to finish a shot off of the several set ups taught in this DVD, wrestlers will be able to keep themselves within one or two steps of launching an effective leg attack.

    with Scot Davis,

    former Eden Prairie (MN) Head Coach;
    Back-to-Back-to-Back Lakes Conference Champions (2014-16) - first three conference titles in program history;
    2x National High School Coach of the Year ('07 and '98),
    Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame;
    holds the national record for dual meet wins with over 1,000 victories;
    former Owatonna (MN) Head Coach; 2x Minnesota High School Coach of the Year; 2x Minnesota AAA State champions, 2009 Dream Team Classic Head Coach

    This video is designed to give coaches an inside look at how a legendary high school program runs their practices early in the season. During the course of three live practices, two-time National High School Wrestling Coach of the Year, Scot Davis, shares a break down of his uniquely designed, early season practices.

    Each practice begins with a proper warm-up including light jogging, gymnastics, partner drills and wrestling-specific drills for developing strength and wrestling motor skills.

    Coach Davis divides the wrestling room into multiple groups and has several coaches teaching technique at the same time. During the following day's practice, the groups rotate. Coaches in each group work on techniques that chain together starting on the feet and working to the mat showing wrestlers how the techniques logically fit together. This is a great way to get a lot of technique in with a number of athletes, while at the same time, giving them the one-on-one technical coaching they need.

    In this presentation, you'll see Davis' staff implementing this practice strategy. The staff includes former Apple Valley (MN) Head Coach Jim Jackson, who won 14 state titles while at Apple Valley. He was named National Coach of the Year three times while consistently producing one of the nation's top high school programs.

    In addition, the staff features Jeff Becker (undefeated Minnesota State Champion with 20 years high school coaching experience); Derek Skala (2012 NCAA D-II National Champion and 2x All American); Jafari Vanier (3-time NCAA D-III National Runner-Up and All American); and Jeff Hohertz (two-time NCAA D-II National Champion and three-time All American).

    Each coach has their own unique coaching style and way of dealing with a range of abilities from beginners to national caliber wrestlers. These coaches cover a number of techniques in this three-disc set, including how to:

    • execute several variations of an ankle pick and the subtle nuances of each
    • use a front headlock series and several finishes
    • finish a single leg numerous ways while using a 2-on-1 setup
    • apply pressure and control using the claw ride in neutral positions and to get cheap tilts from the top position
    • set-up and shoot a Hi-C
    • set-up and use the Augsburg cradle
    • use a snap-down technique to set-up other takedowns or cradles
    • score with a boot scoot series from an outside tie

    Each practice concludes with live wrestling or situational drills. You'll also see how to use a partner-based conditioning circuit to get wrestlers in shape without the need for a special strength session.

    Take an inside look at the practice structure and team discipline that Coach Davis has employed to build a legendary high school program. Gain a unique insight on how to differentiate practices to ensure you provide the best possible opportunity for your wrestlers to achieve their potential.

    WRD-04079C: with Ian Assael,
    full time Camp Director for Ken Chertow's Gold Medal Wrestling Camps;
    former high school coach who developed 14 state champions and two high school All-Americans

    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. Other knee-slide variations include a hip heist when the top man rides your hips, and a high turn when the top man chops.

    Coach Assael also details a wide array of bottom wrestling that will help your wrestlers win the battle on the mat. You will learn several key concepts from bottom and watch as Coach Assael continually reinforces them through coaching cues and drills: pressure back, get hips under shoulders, seal off, get your hands off the mat, and be aggressive on bottom. You'll get an in-depth look at:

    • High Turn - Going from bottom to top and scoring 5 by securing a Peterson
    • Getting off your stomach and properly building a base
    • Defending the chop - executing a quarter turn to a knee-slide
    • Protecting and clearing your wrists to prevent tilts and other turns
    Coach Assael covers several drills to help your wrestlers master these techniques and continuously maintain a position from which they can score. These drills include a takedown to knee-slide recovery drill, a rear standing lift to knee-slide and stand up drill, and a sit out and turn in drill with a variety of realistic scenarios the bottom man may face.

Learn how and when to use each of these drills to improve wrestler performance. Nickerson has designed these progressions to grow athletes from a very raw and basic level, to the highest level of competitors.

    Footwork Drills: Speed, Balance, and Flexibility

    Any wrestler that is great on their feet uses stance and motion to improve their skills. Coach Nickerson demonstrates drills to get hands and feet moving together to improve attack and defense speeds. These drills cover:

    • Stance and Motion - Learn how to move hands and feet together, plus how to develop solid level changes, down blocks, cross blocks, head blocks and knee drops.
    • Foot Speed - Develop the speed needed to get to the leg and defend. Master the over and back, side to side, and leg switches.

      Flexibility and Balance - Increase hip and leg flexibility by mastering single leg finish stretches and back step drills.

    Learn How To Drill Control Ties

    Nickerson covers a few different drills on positioning that allow wrestlers to have a higher success rate on their shots. He demonstrates drills for gaining and getting out of underhooks, collar ties, and 2-on-1 ties. Using the climbing drill, wrestlers will learn how to work up to a proper tie without providing a chance for their opponent to score.

    NCAA D1 National Champion and 4x All-American at Cornell University;
    the first 5x state champion in New York

    Mat wrestling is a forgotten art. Most kids want to work on takedowns, but wrestling consists of three areas in total that need to be worked on.

    In this video, four-time All-American Troy Nickerson shows you how to incorporate a series of drills that will improve wrestlers in the top and bottom positions at the same time. He starts with some foundational drills that are later integrated into other drills.

    Coach Nickerson teaches you drills that you can put your own moves into and have success. Bottom wrestlers will learn how to maintain a solid base and how to get their hips away for an escape or reversal. Top wrestlers will learn to maintain forward pressure and hip control. These drills will build good instincts and will give wrestlers the confidence to hit their moves in competition.

    Bottom Position Wrestling Drills

    Nickerson builds wrestlers by getting them to embrace the basics. He starts with a drill that helps the bottom wrestler learn to maintain a good base position while creating space on bottom with a knee slide or changeover. It's important that a wrestler has great hips, which helps them to move on bottom. He covers three different drills to help improve hip heist for all wrestlers. He then uses several drills that cover stand ups, sit-outs, and Granby rolls.

    All the moves are combined, and the scenarios are endless. There are also drills for clearing legs, working reversals, and re-attacking from a stand up. This series isn't just focused on technique, it also incorporates whistle start drills and drills from bottom with mat returns. These drills can advance athletes to a high level in a short amount of time.

    Top Position Wrestling Drills

    The second half of this video starts with teaching the top wrestler how to break down an opponent's solid base by keeping active forward pressure. Drills are added that emphasize riding under the arms and hip control while staying off the knees. Key concepts cover countering all offensive scoring attempts from the bottom wrestler.

    Coach Nickerson's drills also touch on maintaining control when the bottom man rolls, sits out, or stands up.

    You'll get a drill that Nickerson uses with his wrestlers to improve returning wrestlers to the mat. It covers how to land and how to use multiple returns. There are also drills for using tilts and pinning combinations. These drills are then combined to encourage chain wrestling on the mat.

    Coach Nickerson does a great job of setting athletes up for success. This is a fantastic video for athletes and coaches that want to improve rapidly!

    NCAA D1 National Champion and 4x All-American at Cornell University;
    the first 5x state champion in New York

    One of the easiest ways to control the bottom man is to be good at using the legs. Leg riders can control a match and score a lot of points before the bottom man has realized what's happened. This video is great for teaching leg riding.

    Troy Nickerson demonstrates over 15 drills and moves that show how to get into legs and how to crush opponents from the top position. What makes his legs rides so tough to defend is that they transfer from legs to other turns and rides with ease.

    Getting the Leg In

    Most wrestlers only have one way to get legs in, which makes them predictable. Nickerson covers two standard breakdowns that he uses to make the transition to legs simple. He begins with a tight waist chop that sets up legs with a tilt. When he comes out of the tilt, the leg easily goes in.

    His next setup is a spiral ride that gets the bottom wrestler extended and allows the leg to easily flow inside. These two rides help wrestlers get to the legs, regardless of their positioning, and help eliminate the riskiness of riding legs.

    Turns and Pins

    Coach Nickerson covers six turns that are based around his breakdowns. These range from a simple face-lift to a power half, to a tilt series, and cross-body ride series. The great part about several of his turns is that they easily transfer to an arm bar series or a ball and chain series of turns and back to the legs. Because of this flexibility in the top position, the top wrestler can become almost unstoppable and can make it hard for the bottom man to figure out any way to escape.

    This video from Coach Nickerson will allow an average rider to become a devastating force and make others want to avoid going underneath at all costs!

    Are you wondering what you can do to improve practice? Do you want to know if you're doing the right things? Many coaches spend time wondering if what they're doing is the right thing for their team.

    Kevin Dresser has experienced great success in high school and college as a coach. In this video, he describes some of the biggest mistakes he has made as a coach. He also passes on what he's learned from those mistakes to allow you an opportunity to avoid making the same mistakes.

    Coach Dresser's Keys to Success

    The first part of the video outlines what Dresser calls his practice 'anatomy.' He has eight general steps that he uses everyday leading into his competition weekend. These begin with warm-ups (when to warm up hard and when to warm up subdued) and complete with live wrestling. He bookends these steps with a pre-practice talk and closes with an exit message. These are both important to the athlete as you bring them into a practice, as well as when you send them forward from practice.

    'The 5 Biggest Mistakes a Coach Can Make'

    Coach Dresser follows up practice plans with his five biggest mistakes that you can make as a coach. These come from many years being on one side of the whistle. The biggest one is not showing every move you know. Your athletes will learn the flashy/fun stuff on their own, but to win, they have to be good at the basics.

    Dresser is also a huge proponent of the team concept, even as far as how he utilizes his staff and communication with those over him in the food chain. He concludes with an insightful, experience-laden perspective on warning signals of over-training (especially high school athletes).

    'The 5 Most Important Things to Build a Championship Program'

    Coach Dresser completes his session by sharing program-building philosophies. Thoughts on building from the ground up in your school, becoming someone who is respected and embodies the values you will want in your athletes such as hard work. The 'grassroots' style of program building will eventually get people into the seats and have your community, parents and administrators supporting you. He emphasizes the team concept once again, but places more importance on self-development and out-working everyone else you compete against.

    Success isn't just measured in wins and losses; it has to be also measured in the incremental steps necessary to get to the top and then sustain it. Whether you are a rookie coach, or have been coaching for numerous years, this video contains information that anyone can use to grow!

    with Mark Ironside;
    2X NCAA Champion at the University of Iowa,
    1998 Dan Hodge Trophy winner

    Mark Ironside teaches you his "go to" escape that helped him earn two NCAA Championships - the Sitback Series. The Sitback differs from the traditional sit-out in that you are moving back into your opponent, which helps keep your hips underneath you and give you a better chance to control your opponent's hands. Ironside begins by showing the proper starting position, and then breaks down his Sitback, and includes a lesson on how to do a proper hip heist. Once the basics are covered, Ironside shows how to effectively execute the Sitback versus many common situations your wrestlers may find themselves in, including a 2-on-1, underhook, bar arm and more. This escape works well for those wrestlers who don't have that "explosive reflex" off the bottom. Ironside calls the Sitback series "a move that can make good wrestlers great!"

    See what it's like to be in the wrestling room at Cornell University. In this unique wrestling DVD, Rob Koll opens the doors to three of his practices from the 2010 season. Experience the inner-workings of Cornell practices, get drills and techniques you can use in your program and see what it takes to run a championship caliber practice.

    DAY ONE:
    Koll and his staff introduce new techniques that will be incorporated into each practice throughout the year. Koll's techniques and drills center around the three main goals of the Cornell program: Be strong defensively, be tough on top and don't get ridden.

    First day highlights include:

    • Front Headlock Series - Taught by Assistant Coach Damion Hahn. You will see how Cornell wrestlers use the front headlock as an offensive weapon. This motion based technique will get your opponent off balance, which opens him up and gives your wrestler many scoring options.
    • Leg Series - Jeremy Spates shows you a punishing leg ride series that will keep your opponent on the mat and lead to back points for your wrestlers. Spates includes a lift and throw technique, as well as troubleshooting counter defense ideas.
    • Drill Work - This practice includes 30 minutes of drill work including 14 drills to perfect takedowns, defense, tilts and stand-ups.

    DAY TWO:
    The second day of practice features a lighter workout. In it you will see the team demonstrate more than 10 weightlifting exercises that will not only build strength, but help maintain it through the season. These lifts feature resistance bands and dumb bells.

    The technique session focuses on:

    • Attacking Ties to Dominate the Position - Assistant Coach Matt Azevedo emphasizes putting pressure on your opponent. See how your wrestlers can use their hands to move their opponent to create angles for high percentage scores. Azevedo also demonstrates how to beat a thumb block.
    • Breakdowns - Azevedo teaches a tight waist chop and spiral breakdown and how to use them to get into the leg series that was shown in Day One.

    DAY THREE:
    In the third practice, Coach Koll focuses on two techniques:

    • Collar Tie to Russian Tie - Stay tight and use the set-up to hit a drag or high crotch takedown.
    • Leg Defense - Coach Spates shows four ways to prevent the leg from getting in, which is the best defense to any leg rider. In addition, he shows the hip smash technique, which will get your opponent off the leg if he beats your defense. You'll also see how to defend the power half and how to free yourself from a scissor/figure four ride.
    • Grind Match Drills - Get your wrestlers focused on technique when they are tired!

    This is the first wrestling practice planning DVD of its kind. This DVD package delivers technique, drills and coaching points all in a live setting, giving you the full experience of a championship-caliber practice.

    YWD-04509A: with Eric Akin, East Kansas Wrestling Club Head Coach;
    United States Olympic Team Alternate (1996 and 2000); USA World Team member; 3x Big 8 Champion and 4x All American for Iowa State University; 3x Kansas High School State Champion

    Four-time All American Eric Akin was a top level athlete at Iowa State University. Now as a youth coach he has developed a series of techniques that focuses on fundamentals that will train athletes at all levels to be successful.

    Coach Akin starts with the stance - the most basic element to being successful on your feet. Akin provides a series of stance and motion drills all wrestlers need to become fluid and agile in any takedown attempt and help ingrain it into muscle memory.

    He teaches setups that will work at any level to control the opponent and open attacks. His instruction covers elbow control, inside tie and collar tie, and telephone wrist tie to 2-on-1 control. From the set-up, Akin moves to three types of penetration steps (with drills to practice the steps) to get in deep on your attack. The steps include: the drop step/inside step, the punch-punch sweep single step, and the spring-load step for double legs and low singles.

    All wrestlers, especially young wrestlers, commonly lack the ability to finish their leg attacks. To get those hard earned points, Akin demonstrates finishing drills for the "Big Three" (Single leg, double, leg, and Hi-Crotch). He also shows a slide-by - a technique that is really effective on an opponent that we cannot pass his leg defense.

    Finally, Coach Akin covers basic leg attack defense from the most basic sprawl to the more advanced Wizzer. He discusses two types of level change skills, which is a fundamental component for good defense and blocking, as well as the key to effective leg attacks.

    This video is packed with information from start to finish. It is ideal for any wrestler or coach who wants to learn sound and basic principles that are effective at all levels.

    YWD-04509B: with Eric Akin, East Kansas Wrestling Club Head Coach;
    United States Olympic Team Alternate (1996 and 2000); USA World Team member; 3x Big 8 Champion and 4x All American for Iowa State University; 3x Kansas High School State Champion

    Four-time All American Eric Akin has compiled a video full of essential techniques that wrestlers need to be tough on the mat.

    Starting at square one, Coach Akin shows you stance and hand position skills in order to build a good stance on the bottom, which are essential to maintaining a base and defending attacks by the opponent. You'll learn how to be light on your hands to get hands and feet up quickly. The hip heist is a fundamental skill for escaping and reversing on bottom, and Akin demonstrates a hip heist drill series to learn how to feel comfortable executing the technique.

    He then moves on to the fundamentals of a stand-up, switch, and finally the complex Granby Roll. The techniques you'll learn include:

    • How to attack a hand and cut out for an escape. Hand control and cutting out to face the opponent are the foundation needed to finish to a stand up. No points are earned by the bottom man until he cuts out and faces the opponent.
    • Sit out and head post. This is a great escape for developing wrestlers who struggle with stand up.
    • A unique take on the switch. Coach Akin shows mistakes he believes are commonly taught on the switch and demonstrates a technique that may improve the switch from bottom.
    • And much more!

    He completes the DVD with several different counters to the highest used turns from the top position.

    Coach Akin uses youth wrestlers of varying abilities to demonstrate the technique and drills that he uses in his own room. He has made this basic level series very easy to learn or teach.

    YWD-04509C: with Eric Akin, East Kansas Wrestling Club Head Coach;
    United States Olympic Team Alternate (1996 and 2000); USA World Team member; 3x Big 8 Champion and 4x All American for Iowa State University; 3x Kansas High School State Champion

    Coach Akin was a top level athlete at Iowa State University. Now as a youth coach he has developed a series of techniques that focuses on the fundamentals of turning and pinning your opponent.

    Breakdowns:
    Coach Akin does an excellent job demonstrating and explaining proper body position and pressure on your opponent. He gives constant reminders about "good" position on top. Akin teaches basic breakdowns including the 180 breakdown, the Spiral ride and the Tight Waist Ankle. He uses the 180 and Spiral ride to get into his Cross body ride. Akin shows how he keeps himself in the "saddle" an effective method to stay top of an opponent to get into a variet of pinning combinations.

    Pinning:
    The former U.S. World Team member, Coach Akin demonstrates a ton of ways to get opponents on their backs and rack up team points. He covers six turns that are fundamental to having success at any level from the top position. You'll see everything from a half nelson and chicken wing to cheap tilts, turks, cradles and the dreaded spladle position. Akin sets up his spladle from a side headlock and single leg defense. He also shares unique details to his nearside and crossface cradles that will ensure a pin every time your opponent is on his back.

    We often take minor details for granted, but Coach Akin covers those details as a part of his teaching so that it is easy to integrate into your practice. This is a great DVD for any wrestler or coach to learn sound and basic principles that are effective at all levels.

  • 10/03/18--22:00: The Art of Hand Fighting
  • 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.

    WRD-05368A: with Mike Duroe,
    Cornell College Head Coach; winningest coach in Cornell history

    and Mike Clayton,
    USA Wrestling National Coaches Education Program Manager;
    Former Head Coach at Stevens Institute of Technology;
    2008 NCAA Division III Rookie Coach of the Year

    and Joe Russell,
    US National Freestyle Assistant Coach;
    former George Mason University Head Coach and Assistant Coach at the University of Minnesota

    Mike Clayton and Mike Duroe take on common problem positions for youth and high school wrestlers. This is a wonderful training video where both coaches take insightful questions from the field and answer them on the spot.

    Joe Russell has an extensive background in wrestling and coaching. Along the way, he has put together a guide book that goes out to each of his athletes. This helps all parties to be on the same page and a true part of the program.

    On the Mat: Coaching Techniques

    Coaches Clayton and Duroe field questions regarding technique, but also cover finishing and countering a head inside single. Their focus is on when to let go of the leg as well as how to counter this shot.

    Clayton begins with basic understanding of when a good time is to hang onto the leg and let go of it. This sequence leads to discussion on the importance of having good mobility in order to finish and some complete finishes from a head inside.

    He also discusses the importance of connecting with your athletes and including them in the teaching aspect of coaching as well as sitting down with your assistants and getting their involvement or technique to assist the athletes. Clayton completes with some finishes and how to coach young kids.

    Coach Duroe discusses the importance of position and how to integrate it into a practice. He firmly believes in having high and low level guys in the room at the same time in order to grow everyone. He also discusses how getting up off the mat is of primary importance after hitting a shot. This leads into several ways to get to a single and how hand fighting makes that easier.

    From a more technical aspect, Duroe covers basic positioning for his short offense and how he continues to win those positions. Finally he fields a question about crossfacing; when, how, and the most important aspects of it. Coach Duroe has a good pedigree in coaching athletes at the highest levels of the sport.

    Lecture: The George Mason Way

    Coach Russell provides a description of materials that he provides to each of his athletes to ensure they are all on the same page and know what is expected. He also goes through some of his general team philosophy of technique

    The first part of his guidebook is a section on general expectations and priorities. This gives a rough outline to his philosophy, the team culture, and some principles of success. He talks about how important it is to take care of each other and how to "Maintain excellence in everything we do." He stresses time management and his code of conduct that holds athletes accountable.

    In the second section, Russell focuses on technique strategy. This includes the general items that are practiced during the season as well as all the "fun stuff" that will be gone over in the off-season. He outlines the difference between high percentage and low percentage technique and why it's important to differentiate between the two. Finally, he goes through his philosophies in each position on the mat.

    As a conclusion, Coach Russell writes about his off the mat strategies. This includes items such as life skills, "How do we win in other areas of life," and "Fake it until you make it." This is a great section because typically, if our lives outside of wrestling are squared away, the wrestling part is easier!

This system is a game-changer in the world of sports performance because it can drastically increase performance in an athlete.

    Questions and Answers

    The team uses many of the Day 1 drills in their warm-up and coach reviews them as needed. They then proceed to warm-up drills from the neutral and top position. After the warm-up drills are finished the team works on scoring from their feet.

    Day 3:
    Day three features a workout in the OSU weight room as the team is led through a strength workout. Coach Smith and his staff share a plethora of techniques as they work with the wrestlers on takedowns. Later, the team has a workout on the mat in a smaller group setting. This allows the coaching staff to work on the individual needs of the team members. By watching Coach Smith and his assistants, you will learn how to provide feedback to wrestlers, how to target instruction to individuals, and how to match your coaching style to individual wrestlers.

    Developing positive habits and a strong state of mind is essential to building a quality wrestling program. The drills demonstrated in this video and John Smith's coaching style has been integral in building the OSU program into one that is always in contention for a championship. Now you can use these same drills and coaching techniques to create champions in your program!

    All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's practice can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you!
