    with Scot Davis,
    Bishop Heelan (IA) High School Head Coach;
    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.

    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.

    featuring Ken Chertow,
    Queens University Head Coach;
    US Olympian; 3x NCAA All American and 3x Academic All-American at Penn State,
    2x Junior World Champion, Midlands Champion and Outstanding Wrestler.
    Coach Chertow coached at both Ohio State and Penn State where his teams won the National Duals and finished in the top 5 at NCAA Championships 75% of the time. You can learn from Coach Chertow personally at his year round and summer Gold Medal Training Camp.

    US Olympian Ken Chertow believes "bottom wrestling is a fight," and that you must develop the "warrior attitude" when coming out from the bottom. In this instructional DVD, Coach Chertow will help improve your bottom wrestling and increase your ability to score big points.

    Coach Chertow covers scoring from the bottom using variations of stand-ups, hip heists, or rolls, and he explains how to use these moves in combination with one another. These techniques will make your wrestlers more explosive and able to score from the bottom position. Topics covered include:

    • Drilling Stand-ups - Get to your feet using an explosive stand up, applying pressure back, gaining hand control and cutting off to face your opponent. A variety of partner and shadow drills are provided for a coach or wrestler to utilize.

    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.

    Coaches and wrestlers who study and implement the drills in this DVD will see improved positioning and results from the bottom position.

    John Smith looks at a number of common "bad" situations you find yourself in once you get stopped on a takedown attempt - and how to come out of those positions and score. In this wrestling DVD, Coach Smith concentrates on two main areas - the single leg and high crotch. He shows how to score when you are on your stomach in extended position with hands locked, in a front headlock position, in an underhook and more. He closes the DVD with a couple drills he uses with his wrestlers to reinforce these techniques. These are positions you don't want to be in, but if you get there you can still win the battle and score. These techniques are the same ones he used with great success - winning six consecutive world championships, and will definitely make a difference for you in a match. They will help you recover from a bad shot and put points on the board once you have been stopped. This instructional wrestling DVD is truly a "one-of-a-kind"!

    with Dwight Hinson,
    Central Iowa Wrestling Club Head Coach;
    4x All-American at Iowa State University;
    3x Big 12 Champion; 138 career victories

    The 2-on-1, or Russian tie, is one of the most effective ties in all of wrestling. It can be seen at the NCAA and Olympic levels - in folkstyle, freestyle and Greco - but is particularly effective at the youth and high school levels as it provides a strong angle and handle to control the opponent. Once the opponent is worn down, the wrestler can attack while the opponent's offense is limited to a handful of low-percentage moves. Newer wrestlers can use the position to set up their attacks with minimal worry about counters.

    In this video, 4x All-American Dwight Hinson gives you his complete guide to the Russian tie.

    Takedown Series from Russian Tie

    Hinson demonstrates a variety of takedowns with wrestlers from his club. The full series includes 16 takedowns, including:

    • Pull downs
    • Single legs to both sides
    • Dumps and throws
    • Body locks and ducks
    • Ankle picks and knee picks

    Many of the takedowns work in sequence. Coach Hinson builds off the single leg, pull down and inside trip to set up a number of different moves that are difficult to defend once your opponent commits to defending the first move. Keen attention is paid to the placement of the hands throughout each move to maintain angle and connection.

    Follow-Up Pinning Combinations

    The ability to threaten with pinning and turns off of a takedown attempt is invaluable. Not only does the threat of the turn make finishing the takedown easier, it is also the easiest and best moment to score a fall. With virtually every technique shown above, Hinson demonstrates optimal follow-ups into cradles, turks, nelsons, and freestyle laces.

    Freestyle and Greco Techniques

    Coach Hinson doesn't limit himself to teaching folkstyle techniques in this video. He also shows a variety of modifications for freestyle and Greco, as well as follow-ups into leg laces for freestyle. The Russian tie is unique in that it works consistently in all three styles of wrestling, and can be especially effective in setting up upper-body Greco-native techniques. Many of these moves are just small modifications of the freestyle and folkstyle versions.

    This Russian tie series is a complete offensive game plan for wrestlers at any level. Learn how to hand fight, score and pin in one convenient video!

    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.

    Day 1:
    Coach begins practice with a team meeting in which he explains the importance of getting mentally prepared for practice. Smith proceeds to teach the bottom position drills that the team will use on a regular basis to build technique and form the foundation for their wrestling season. The drills focus on specific situations and skill development. In this manner they warm-up with more technique than some teams include in an entire practice. All drills build wrestling specific movements and habits to score from the bottom position. The team proceeds with drilling from their feet. Before releasing the team, coach explains the aspects of what makes a good drill and why it drilling is important.

    Day 2:

    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!

    4x All-American at Iowa State University;
    3x Big 12 Champion; 138 career victories

    The 2-on-1, or Russian tie, is one of the most effective ties in all of wrestling. It can be seen at the NCAA and Olympic levels - in folkstyle, freestyle and Greco - but is particularly effective at the youth and high school levels as it provides a strong angle and handle to control the opponent. Once the opponent is worn down, the wrestler can attack while the opponent's offense is limited to a handful of low-percentage moves. Newer wrestlers can use the position to set up their attacks with minimal worry about counters.

    In this video, 4x All-American Dwight Hinson gives you his complete guide to the Russian tie.

    Takedown Series from Russian Tie

    Hinson demonstrates a variety of takedowns with wrestlers from his club. The full series includes 16 takedowns, including:

    • Pull downs
    • Single legs to both sides
    • Dumps and throws
    • Body locks and ducks
    • Ankle picks and knee picks

    Many of the takedowns work in sequence. Coach Hinson builds off the single leg, pull down and inside trip to set up a number of different moves that are difficult to defend once your opponent commits to defending the first move. Keen attention is paid to the placement of the hands throughout each move to maintain angle and connection.

    Follow-Up Pinning Combinations

    The ability to threaten with pinning and turns off of a takedown attempt is invaluable. Not only does the threat of the turn make finishing the takedown easier, it is also the easiest and best moment to score a fall. With virtually every technique shown above, Hinson demonstrates optimal follow-ups into cradles, turks, nelsons, and freestyle laces.

    Freestyle and Greco Techniques

    Coach Hinson doesn't limit himself to teaching folkstyle techniques in this video. He also shows a variety of modifications for freestyle and Greco, as well as follow-ups into leg laces for freestyle. The Russian tie is unique in that it works consistently in all three styles of wrestling, and can be especially effective in setting up upper-body Greco-native techniques. Many of these moves are just small modifications of the freestyle and folkstyle versions.

    This Russian tie series is a complete offensive game plan for wrestlers at any level. Learn how to hand fight, score and pin in one convenient video!

    with Cody Caldwell,
    South Dakota State University Assistant Coach;
    former Grand View University Assistant Coach; helped Grand View win the 2016 NAIA National Championship;
    four year starter at the University of Northern Iowa and 2014 NCAA qualifier

    This video from South Dakota State University's Cody Caldwell contains a full look at how to dominate using the claw position. He goes in-depth to give you an effective series on top that isn't just limited to claws and bars!

    Coach Caldwell's top work begins with the claw and transitions to bars and a tough side headlock. This series is particularly effective because it will help your wrestlers stop the opponent's counters and ability to get to their feet; this is must-have skill for every athlete on your team!

    Getting to the Claw

    The key to working the claw is to keep your opponent's weight on their hands. You'll see how Coach Caldwell pinches with his hips and stays on his toes to stay in the correct position. Additionally, you'll learn how to shift from side to side in order to stay active and continue applying pressure.

    Next, Caldwell shows how he gets his claw from a variety of positions. He details how to implement the foot speed, stance and motion into foot fire drills. It's important to understand how the body changes physically, physiologically, neurologically and psychologically, and Coach Caldwell breaks down each of those categories.

    Controlling the Opponent

    From the claw, Caldwell teaches how to break down an opponent to where they are flat. He includes how to control the opponent's legs and hips in order to keep them in the position where you can score back points. Leg, head, and arm positioning are covered in order to ensure you can't get reversed.

    Coach Caldwell also touches on how to shift from an arm chop to a deep waist if your opponent is too strong. You'll learn how to block the opponent's knee and roll them over to their back.

    Running the Claw from Different Positions

    Sometimes, your opponent will do a good job of avoiding getting broken down with the claw, which is why it's important to learn how to transition to an inside chop and wrist until you can get back to the claw. Caldwell covers how to handle the claw if your opponent quad pods as well as how to mat return your opponent while keeping your claw.

    Arm Bar Series

    Many wrestlers struggle to get an arm bar on strong opponents. Coach Caldwell teaches how to not only use your arms, but also your legs to get your opponent's arm. You'll see how to lift and turn an opponent with your arm bar as well as a slick method to get your leg turk in to open your opponent up.

    Coach Caldwell keeps his technique on a level that anyone can understand and implement in their own practice. Learning a tough top system will help your wrestlers dominate and score quick points on their opponents. This video will give you not only the techniques, but also the ways to drill each of these positions in practice.

    4x All-American wrestler at Cornell University; NCAA National Title at 197 pounds (2012)

    One of the prettiest takedowns in wrestling is the ankle pick, and in this video, you'll learn the ankle pick from one of the masters of the move: Cam Simaz!

    The ankle pick is a safe technique that can be effective when you need to get two points. The information presented by Coach Simaz will help you increase the number of takedowns you get using the ankle pick.

    Getting Started and Setups

    Simaz leans on his past experience, which includes winning the individual NCAA Title in 2012 (Cornell), to explain and demonstrate three different techniques to get to the ankle pick. From there, he shows how to use head position, hand position, and foot movement setups to hit a shot.

    Adjustments and Finishes

    One of the keys to wrestling is to be able to anticipate what the opponent is going to do next before they actually do it. Coach Simaz addresses many of the different methods that opponents may use in reaction to an ankle pick. You'll also get various combinations of turks and cradles that can quickly put your opponent on their back.

    Finally, Simaz demonstrates multiple finishes that will increase your chances of scoring. He even covers finishes from different wrestling styles (Folkstyle and Freestyle).

    This is one of the most complete breakdowns of the ankle pick ever put together in one place. Coach Simaz has often used the ankle pick to his advantage, and with the help of this video, your wrestlers will soon be able to as well!

    Oklahoma State University head coach John Smith has won at all levels, both as a wrestler and a coach. He's widely known for his capabilities on his feet, but he also had tremendous success pinning. Pinning, to Coach Smith, is the pinnacle of an individual match and he continually states the importance of not just practicing pinning a lot, but practicing 'getting to the pin' as well.

    Combinations and Breakdowns

    Smith covers several different pinning combinations as well as four major breakdowns that can get wrestlers to that point. This video begins with four breakdowns before covering eight different turns for the pin. All of Smith's turns can be performed from each of the various breakdowns, which is what makes this series so effective! Without the breakdowns, wrestlers cannot expect to score near-fall points or get occasional pins.

    Pinning Situations

    Coach Smith breaks down pinning from the feet as well as pinning off of an opponent's attack. These are particularly important areas since opponents are vulnerable as they attack and you can make things end in a hurry if you take advantage of the opportunity. Smith shows three different pins from each spot, and, how to ensure you finish the match quickly to prevent the opponent from ever having a chance.

    Every wrestler loves the excitement of the pin, and this video, from one of the all-time great pinning artists, will help you get more pins. Coach Smith shows solid technique that progresses from the beginning of the breakdown through a basic, but effective pin. Perfect for athletes and coaches at any level.

    with John Smith,
    Oklahoma State University Head Coach,

    • 2016 Big 12 Coach of the Year - 9x Big 12 Coach of the Year

    • 2x Olympic Gold Medalist
    • 6x World Champion
    • 2x NCAA Champion

    Legendary NCAA coach and Olympic Gold Medalist John Smith created a technique that was revolutionary 20-30 years ago. What was once thought as almost unstoppable has since become the norm. Now, Coach Smith brings an entirely new series that will revolutionize the low single once again.

    The low single-leg takedown should be a staple of every wrestler's arsenal. As the move has evolved over the years, the defense to stop it has changed as well. Coach Smith traces the evolution of the low single-leg takedown and makes modifications to the technique in order to help wrestlers counter defenses created specifically to combat it. He also goes over how to make the low single available from a contact position.

    Low Single from Contact: The Snatch Low Single

    Traditionally, the low single-leg takedown has been most effect from the outside, requiring space to shoot in and get below an opponent's defense. However, by making a few adjustments to the technique, Coach Smith shows how to get the takedown from an inside attack, using what he calls a reach or "snatch" entry. Now, wrestlers will feel comfortable hitting the low single from a variety of control ties.

    Countering Low Single-Leg Defense: Scrambles

    Wrestling has changed throughout the years and scrambling has become a natural part of the sport at all levels. Whether it's a knee down, a leg across, an ankle grab, or an attempt at a roll or cradle, Coach Smith shows how to counter the most-frequently deployed defenses against the low single-leg takedown - many of which have been inspired by funk wrestling.

    Coach Smith stresses the most important aspects of winning a scramble: covering your ankles, getting your head higher than your opponent's and using the cross face. Similarly, he covers techniques from previous videos, such as peek outs and drags as offensive tools from missed shots, to illustrate how there are scoring opportunities from both good and bad shots.

    The great piece of this technique is that it is applicable to both folkstyle and freestyle!

    Scoring Off the Threat of a Low Single

    Just the threat of a low single-leg can set up offense for a different takedown. Coach Smith uses a "touch and go" philosophy to turn jabs, fake shots, and an opponent's natural reactions into scoring opportunities from snap downs, inside ties, and even a "jump throw."

    Coach Smith illustrates six takedowns that are opened up by the low single-leg. The "drag out" is becoming a popular takedown that is set up by the low single-leg. Coach Smith covers each takedown in full detail to help ensure a clear understanding of the technique to help every wrestler be able to score points.

    He finishes his series with a throw that is set up from the low single. It's ironic that one of the greatest leg attackers in the world has set up a throw that is devastating to the opponent once they get out of position. The throw is low risk and has a high level of effectiveness.

    Coach Smith does an amazing job of breaking down simple and complicated techniques and positions so that even inexperienced wrestlers can understand. This video is the perfect compliment to How Low Can You Go, Vol. 2. It answers all the most common "what if" questions wrestlers and coaches have regarding the low single-leg takedown.
