Three-Quarter Nelson with wrestling tips

Posted in Wrestling Pinning Combinations with tags , on October 16, 2009 by wrestlingtips
  • When your opponent is down on the mat and you are on top of him the first thing you want to do is get him flat on the mat
  • Now slide your left hand under his left arm and put your left hand on the back of your opponents neck
  • Then hook your right leg around your opponents left leg. To hook your leg around his take your right leg and stick it between his legs and slide it under his left leg. Thats how you hook your legs around your opponent
  • Then with your right hand you want to reach under his chest and grab onto your left forearm
  • Now pull his head down and tick it in- so his head is by his knees/upper thighs
  • But you still want to have his head resting on the mat
  • From here walk from his left knee towards his head so you can roll his body onto his shoulders

Wrestling tips

  • make sure that you always keep constant pressure on your opponent so he doesn’t try to escape, always keep him flat on the mat
  • make sure when you are making your three-quarter nelson that you make the lock as tight as possible. This will make it harder for your opponent to try to escape and it will make it hurt worse for him

Long Sit-Out with wrestling tips

Posted in Wrestling Escapes/Reversals with tags , on October 16, 2009 by wrestlingtips
  • So this is when your down on all fours and want to escape from under your opponent
  • Plant your left hand on the mat firmly
  • Then you want to swing your legs out as far as you can in front of yourself
  • While you do step 3, and your legs are still in the air from swinging them out from under you, you want to land on your left hip
  • As your doing steps 3 and 4 your opponent should lose his hold on you
  • So as your on your left hip you want to kick your right leg over your left leg so now your stomach is facing the mat, and you and your opponent will be facing each other too
  • From there you can scrammble to your feet.

Wrestling tips

  • When your doing moves like these you want to move quickly so that you can get your opponent to lose his grip on you. If you do act too slow then he will be able to move around with you and stay on top of you.
  • If you are going to do this move in a match make sure that you have practiced it diligently so that this move is second nature to you. Becuase if its not and you try to perform this move your opponent may be able to snap you down to your back when you kick your legs out in front of you.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, that does not mean that you shouldn’t try it again. When your on bottom you need to keep moving so you can wear your opponent out and sooner or later you will be able to escape or get a reversal.

Half Nelson with wrestling tips

Posted in Wrestling Pinning Combinations with tags , on October 16, 2009 by wrestlingtips
  • When your opponent is on the ground and you are on top of him the first thing that you want to do is get your opponent flat on their stomach
  • Then slide your left hand under his left arm and put your hand on the back of his neck
  • Keep constant pressure on him so he will stay flat
  • With your free hand grab your opponents right wrist so he cant try to get free
  • Now you want to get on your opponents left side because when you get on his side you will be using your left arm and body to roll your opponent onto his back

Wrestling Tips

  • when you put your left hand under your opponents left arm and place your left hand on the back of his neck you want to make sure that you make that lock really tight. If it is not then you wont be able to roll your opponent as efficiently. Even if you can roll him it will be easier for him to escape. But if you keep your lock tight then not only will it be hard for him to escape, but when you roll him you want to make the lock tighter so it hurts him. This will make him squirm less so you try to not only get back-points but maybe a pin.
  • When you go to roll your opponent do not just push him straight on. You want to push as an angle towards his head because it will be easier to get him to go to his back.

Stand Up with wrestling tips

Posted in Wrestling Escapes/Reversals with tags , on October 16, 2009 by wrestlingtips
  • This move is performed when you are down on all fours and your opponent is on top of you. This is an escape move and not a reversal
  • For steps 3-6 you have to do them all at the same time
  • With your left leg you will step up onto your foot. While your other leg is still on its knee. When you do this step you also want to arch your back a little so now your leaning into your opponent
  • Also you will throw your left arm into the air
  • While you do this your opponent will try to grab around your waist to keep you down.
  • So use your right hand to grab your opponents right wrist when he does grab around you
  • Now you can come up so your standing on both feet, still arching your back into your opponent
  • If his hands are not locked around you then you can pivet towards him so you both are back in neutral position
  • If his hands are locked around your waist then push your thumbs in between your stomach and his hands and then wrap your fingers around his hands
  • Now if his locked hands are closer to your left hip then step forward with your left foot and push your hip out and visa versa
  • By doing this you are stretching your opponent so he can not keep an as strong grip on you
  • At the same time when you push your hip out with your hands still in the step 9 position try to break his grip by pushing them further outward and pulling his hands apart When you break his grip, pivet towards him so your both in neutral position

Wrestling Tips

  • The key to this is not only to move quick but to also keep constant pressure on your opponent by arching your back, and also when you push your hip out so that you are stretching him out and he will not be able to lock around you as tightly. Which is key to your escape
  • Make sure that if your opponent picks you up and takes you back to the mat that you do not give up. Just start this move over and over again until you can perform it successfully. Because I always see kids give up on a move when it fails the first time but if you keep attempting sooner or later you will tire out your opponent and will be able to escape.
  • When your thumbs are between your stomach and your opponents hands, and the rest of your hands are locked around his hands make sure that your push his hands foreward away from him and break his lock. If you dont do this then you will never be able to succeed at this escape

Low Single Leg with wrestling tips

Posted in Wrestling Takedowns with tags , on October 16, 2009 by wrestlingtips
  • If you lead with your right foot then you will shoot for your opponents left leg and visa versa.
  • Once you clear his hands and you have an open shot then lower your stance and take a deep penetration step with your lead foot
  • When you take that step your foot will be on the outside of your opponents leg- and just like the double leg you should be on your knee momentarily till you get a hold of his leg
  • Also instead of grabbing around his knee like with a high single leg, you are going to lock around his calf
  • So at this point you are on your knees and your arms are locked around your oppenents calf, and your opponent should still be standing
  • So now whatever calf you are locked around you want to work your way to the side of that leg your locked around. So instead of being in front of your opponent locked on his leg, you want to be to the side of your opponent.
  • Now drive your right shoulder into his knee to drop your opponent to his knees
  • When this happens you can let go of his calf and do whatever you want since you will be behind him

Wrestling Tips

  • Like you should always do, make sure you have an open shot before going for his leg. So you want to clear his arms from in front of himself. For more detail on this just view the double leg takedown.
  • Make sure you have a tight lock on your opponents calf. If you dont then he can just pull his leg out from your grasps and guess what you will still be on the ground and he will still be standing so now he can sprawl on you and try to get some points.
  • When you go to take your opponent down put a lot of pressure using your shoulder on the back of your competitors knee. This will help not only get him to his knees but also keep his focus on trying not to fall instead of trying to escape.

High Single Leg- with wrestling tips

Posted in Wrestling Takedowns with tags , on October 15, 2009 by wrestlingtips
  • If you lead with your right foot then you will shoot for your opponents left leg and visa versa.
  • Once you clear his hands and you have an open shot then lower your stance and take a deep penetration step with your lead foot
  • When you take that step your foot will be on the outside of your opponents leg- and just like the double leg you should be on your knee momentarily till you get a hold of his leg
  • From there you grasp your hands together around your opponents knee
  • Then as you lift his leg in the air and you come to a standing postition put the side of your head into his ribs
  • To finish you can do a few things. One thing is a sit back. To do this slide your grip from your opponents knee to his upper thigh. Then sit down on your right hip while also driving your head into his stomach/chest backward. The other finishing option you have is to just trip your competitor foreward. So once you have your opponents leg in the air use your right foot if thats your lead and trip him above his right knee. Also drive him forward at the same time.

Wrestling Tips

  • Make sure you have an open shot. Most wrestlers will shoot regardless, and if you do that then you will find that your opponent will sprawl and then can spin around you and get the takedown. So make sure he is open before shooting.
  • Also when you have your arms locked around your opponents leg make sure you keep a tight lock and keep your head close to his body so you can keep constant pressure on him.
  • Lastly when you have his leg in the air dont just stand there while you attemp to take him to the mat. Always keep moving around so your opponent will be more concentrated on keeping his balance and not on trying to escpae.

Double Leg Takedown and Wrestling Tips

Posted in Wrestling Takedowns with tags , , , on October 11, 2009 by wrestlingtips
  • First off start by grabbing your opponents wrists, and then throw them apart in opposite directions so you have an open shot on your opponent without his hands in front of himself
  • Lower your body- by bending your knees
  • Step between his legs with your lead foot and then drop to your knee with this leg till your ready to finish the move
  • Also your shoulders should be over your lead foot
  • Grab his legs, one in each hand at either his knees or thighs
  • If your lead foot is your right foot your head should go on the outside of your opponents right side and visa versa is your lead leg is your left leg
  • Since your ready to finish you can stand back up on your lead foot and pick up your opponent using your legs- not back. Also drive with your head into his side to get him off his feet and now he’s off the ground and you can take him down to the mat.

Wrestling Tip:

  1. In the second to last step when it says “if lead foot is your right foot your head should go on the outside of your opponents right side and visa versa” remember when your in the last step and going to takedown your opponent push your head into his side and take him down in that direction. So if your head is on his right side, then you will take him down to your right, not to your left. I always see kids try to do it the opposite way and cant because then you have to throw your opponent over your head and they always get stuck.
  2. Always lift with your legs! It will be easier then trying to do it with your back and if you lift with your back you have higher chances of getting injured.
