    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.

    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.

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

    The most important aspect of wrestling in the neutral position is hand fighting - controlling the opponent, setting up offense, and wearing them down. However, this is often considered the most challenging aspect of wrestling to teach - wrestlers are often shown discrete tie-ups, without an idea of how to transition between them and keep their opponent off-balance.

    In this video, two-time NCAA National Champion Chris Perry teaches a systematic approach to transitioning between tie-ups and leg attacks. You'll learn offensive moves from three common and important ties ups:

    • Inside tie and wrist control
    • Head ties
    • Elbow control

    Perry thoroughly explains the concepts, tricks and objectives of each tie up and how to set up shots and neutralize your opponent's offense, giving you the advantage of knowing that you can attack, while your opponent's options are limited.

    After explaining each tie up, Perry goes on to show the transitions from the tie ups, to the leg attacks, focusing heavily on the high crotch and single leg.

    Inside Tie, Wrist Control and Take DownsPerry begins by showing how a wrestler should approach the opponent so he/she doesn't extend themself and get taken down. With an inside tie, you will learn a nifty trick with your thumb that will hinder your opponent from being able to shoot.

    After getting an inside tie along with wrist control, you'll learn how to successfully use it to attack a high crotch. Perry methodically explains how to open a "window" with an inside tie to get to a high crotch, and from there, how to properly position your body and finish the take down.

    Perry also shows how to attack a single leg from this tie up. Learn why the single leg is actually easier, as often at times your attack hand is the closest hand to the leg. When attacking the single leg, Perry demonstrates the importance of ensuring your arm pit and attack hand are both underneath the leg, which prevents your opponent from being able to defend the single leg. You'll see two common finishes from the single leg, giving you the option to:

    • Use your shoulder to turn into the leg to finish it on the mat
    • Bring the leg up to your feet and finish it from there

    How to Clear Head Ties and Get to Leg Attacks

    Head ties are one of the most common and annoying tie ups in wrestling. In this section, you'll learn why you shouldn't go ear-to-ear when in a collar tie unless you're trying to stall or catch your breath. However, as all wrestlers know, being ear-to-ear with your opponent happens all the time and this can be annoying when you're offensive minded and looking to score.

    • You will learn how to get from being jammed up ear-to-ear in a collar tie, to a more offensive position where you are head-to-head and have the space to attack the single leg.
    • If you prefer the high crotch, Perry shows you how to set this up from a collar tie and how to open the "window," allowing you to successfully get to the leg and finish the take down.
    • If attacking from collar ties aren't your thing, Perry also shows you the option of using your hand to push your opponent's face away, to either create separation or transition into another tie up which you find favorable.

    Elbow Control

    Elbow control is a tie up Oklahoma State is known for. Perry begins by expelling the common misconceptions about elbow control and shows you how to hold onto the elbow properly, so you nullify your opponent's inside tie and take away any offensive opportunities.

    You'll learn how elbow control can be used as a control tie to bully your opponent around the mat, and how to recognize the best time to shoot off elbow control. From elbow control, you'll learn how to segue into the main attacks from the position: the inside reach single, the duck-under, and the high crotch.

    Elbow Pass

    If you find yourself stuck ear-to-ear in your opponent's head tie, and can't roll your head underneath theirs to create space or push their head away, Perry shows you how to execute an elbow pass off elbow control. When executing an elbow pass, you can often go to an inside tie and execute your favorite take downs from there. He explains why shooting off an elbow pass is dependent on how your opponent reacts, and shows attacks to the most common reaction of your opponent squaring up. From there, you have the option to go for a:

    • High crotch
    • Double leg
    • Low single leg

    Finishing Leg Attacks

    As important as hand fighting, set-ups and penetration are to wrestling, they are useless without strong finishes on takedowns. Perry breaks down the fundamentals of positioning to finish a single leg and a high crotch. He emphasizes how to keep the hips under a wrestler, and maintain a strong angle to minimize the use of strength and energy to finish the position.

    Wrestling on the feet is a tough skill to learn. Perry does an amazing job showing how these set-ups transition a bad shot into a great attack series.

    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.

    2x NCAA Champ and 4x All-American at the University of Iowa; 1998 Dan Hodge Trophy winner

    The difference between a good wrestler and a great wrestler is knowing how to break your opponent down and keep him down. Dan Hodge Trophy winner Mark Ironside teaches the skills necessary to dominate from the top position. His techniques center on applying constant, grinding pressure and the importance of always having forward pressure from the top position.

    Coach Ironside demonstrates four breakdowns that span all the various levels of wrestling, and explains the finer points of each. He shows the Chop & Drive, Deep Waist Far Ankle, Spiral Ride, and Hook Ankle. 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.

    Go from good to great with these top breakdowns and skills.

    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.

    • Head ties
    • Elbow control

    Perry thoroughly explains the concepts, tricks and objectives of each tie up and how to set up shots and neutralize your opponent's offense, giving you the advantage of knowing that you can attack, while your opponent's options are limited.

    After explaining each tie up, Perry goes on to show the transitions from the tie ups, to the leg attacks, focusing heavily on the high crotch and single leg.

    Inside Tie, Wrist Control and Take DownsPerry begins by showing how a wrestler should approach the opponent so he/she doesn't extend themself and get taken down. With an inside tie, you will learn a nifty trick with your thumb that will hinder your opponent from being able to shoot.

    After getting an inside tie along with wrist control, you'll learn how to successfully use it to attack a high crotch. Perry methodically explains how to open a "window" with an inside tie to get to a high crotch, and from there, how to properly position your body and finish the take down.

    Perry also shows how to attack a single leg from this tie up. Learn why the single leg is actually easier, as often at times your attack hand is the closest hand to the leg. When attacking the single leg, Perry demonstrates the importance of ensuring your arm pit and attack hand are both underneath the leg, which prevents your opponent from being able to defend the single leg. You'll see two common finishes from the single leg, giving you the option to:

    • Use your shoulder to turn into the leg to finish it on the mat
    • Bring the leg up to your feet and finish it from there

    How to Clear Head Ties and Get to Leg Attacks

    Head ties are one of the most common and annoying tie ups in wrestling. In this section, you'll learn why you shouldn't go ear-to-ear when in a collar tie unless you're trying to stall or catch your breath. However, as all wrestlers know, being ear-to-ear with your opponent happens all the time and this can be annoying when you're offensive minded and looking to score.

    • You will learn how to get from being jammed up ear-to-ear in a collar tie, to a more offensive position where you are head-to-head and have the space to attack the single leg.
    • If you prefer the high crotch, Perry shows you how to set this up from a collar tie and how to open the "window," allowing you to successfully get to the leg and finish the take down.
    • If attacking from collar ties aren't your thing, Perry also shows you the option of using your hand to push your opponent's face away, to either create separation or transition into another tie up which you find favorable.

    Elbow Control

    Elbow control is a tie up Oklahoma State is known for. Perry begins by expelling the common misconceptions about elbow control and shows you how to hold onto the elbow properly, so you nullify your opponent's inside tie and take away any offensive opportunities.

    You'll learn how elbow control can be used as a control tie to bully your opponent around the mat, and how to recognize the best time to shoot off elbow control. From elbow control, you'll learn how to segue into the main attacks from the position: the inside reach single, the duck-under, and the high crotch.

    Elbow Pass

    If you find yourself stuck ear-to-ear in your opponent's head tie, and can't roll your head underneath theirs to create space or push their head away, Perry shows you how to execute an elbow pass off elbow control. When executing an elbow pass, you can often go to an inside tie and execute your favorite take downs from there. He explains why shooting off an elbow pass is dependent on how your opponent reacts, and shows attacks to the most common reaction of your opponent squaring up. From there, you have the option to go for a:

    • High crotch
    • Double leg
    • Low single leg

    Finishing Leg Attacks

    As important as hand fighting, set-ups and penetration are to wrestling, they are useless without strong finishes on takedowns. Perry breaks down the fundamentals of positioning to finish a single leg and a high crotch. He emphasizes how to keep the hips under a wrestler, and maintain a strong angle to minimize the use of strength and energy to finish the position.

    Wrestling on the feet is a tough skill to learn. Perry does an amazing job showing how these set-ups transition a bad shot into a great attack series.

    Chain wrestling is a vital element to wrestling success. It gives your wrestlers the ability to string together a combination of moves once they get stopped that will lead to points.

    Chain wrestling is a skill set that does not "just happen," it is a skill set that needs to be trained. For the first time on DVD, five-time NCAA Championship coach John Smith shares his philosophy on chain wrestling and presents drilling ideas so that your wrestlers can put together a sequence of moves to dominate their opponent.

    Smith delivers drill ideas for on the feet, defense, top and bottom position, freestyle and more. Smith's demonstration will give you a blueprint on how to develop the sequence of moves you want to teach. He shows how to drill a high crotch to drag to a breakdown position, a chop to wrist control to arm bar, tight waist to getting back to your base to hip heist and more.

    You cannot execute your moves successfully every time, so it's imperative to stay on the offense even though you've been stopped. These drills will force your wrestlers to continue to wrestle until they score!
