Terry Steiner: Advanced Freestyle: Attacks & Transitions

with Terry Steiner,
US National Women's Team Head Coach,
NCAA Champion and 3x All American (Iowa);
Distinguished member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame

In freestyle wrestling, it's crucial for athletes to make progress and score turns quickly before the official calls the wrestlers back to their feet. U.S. National Women's Team's Terry Steiner shows multiple attacks in this video that work together in transition so that athletes can flow from one attack to the next and score a turn quickly.

Attack Basics

Coach Steiner begins with how to transition into several different types of turks off of a takedown, which are effective for both freestyle and folkstyle. He also covers numerous moves, including different types of leg laces, cross knee turns, and a toe trap gut wrench. Many of the moves are deceptive to the bottom wrestler because they don't feel threatening during a match.

Missed Attacks

If the wrestler misses an attack off the takedown, Coach Steiner provides a starting point that leads to all core attacks for the top wrestler. He gives multiple options that can be used together if one move doesn't work initially. Steiner also shows how to use the bottom wrestler's momentum against them, allowing the top wrestler to capitalize on their opponent's reactions.

Problem Solving

Coach Steiner demonstrates the biggest mistakes that are made while making an attack and how to correct them. He also shows how to make a correction quickly if something goes wrong on an attack without wasting valuable time. You'll see how to progress and score against various defenses that frequently make turns difficult.

The highest percentages of takedowns are leg attacks, and Steiner shows multiple ways to score on the lower body after a leg attack in this video. Having an effective system in place gives wrestlers a path to follow so they can progress and score quickly no matter what type of defense they face. This is a great video for freestyle wrestlers and coaches.

2x U.S. Open champion;

Coach Chun, the USA Wrestling Women's National Team Assistant Coach, details how wrestlers can avoid getting exposed and make opponents work much harder for their points.

Basic Position and Setup

Chun beings by teaching how to close off both the upper and lower body by using your arms and legs so your opponent can't gain position. You'll learn how to move in order to stay one step ahead of the opponent at all times.

Next, Coach Chun covers how to find the lock and apply pressure in order to roll the lock and break it while staying open. She also teaches how to circle on the mat and pin the lock if it won't break.

Defending the High Guts and Leg Lace

You will see Chun demonstrate how to utilize proper hip placement to put pressure on the lock. She also details how to inch forward while remaining open to break the lock.

Defending the leg lace boils down to the wrestler keeping their hands below their knees. Coach Chun shows how to maintain wide knees and keep ankles separate so the opponent can't get the lock. You'll observe how Chun uses knee and hip movement to break the lock and what to do if the opponent gets a leg turk in order to stay bellied down.

Coach Chun teaches you her entire philosophy to defending the par terre position. She explains where to put pressure and how to achieve maximum pressure to break your opponent's lock and keep from getting turned. An added benefit to this video is listening to coaches ask questions at the end of her presentation. In all, you'll get impactful, informative insights from an Olympic coach on how she defended as a wrestler, and now, how she trains resident and visiting athletes at the Olympic Training Center.

Kevin Jackson's experience as a coach and one of the top wrestlers in United States history has given him the opportunity to develop a clear understanding of what it takes to compete at a high level. These are the same world-class skills that he uses with the wrestlers in the Elite Athlete Program in order to prepare them to compete against the best wrestlers in the world.

The key to scoring from the neutral position is a wrestler's ability to quickly change between an offensive and defensive mindset. Coach Jackson demonstrates how to effectively use a wrestler's body to defend a leg attack and to immediately turn the table on the opponent with an offensive attack. He also uses his experience to make it clear that the combination of efficient technique and determination to win the situation is the difference-maker in a wrestler's performance.

Neutral Positioning

Coach Jackson explains the importance of a wrestler's body position in the neutral position for both offense and defense. This will shift a wrestler's mentality to not allow an opponent in on their legs, but that they should be in on the opponent's legs. Topics Jackson covers include:

  • How a wrestler should use their head to close the gap or defend a shot of an opponent.
  • Why the best reaction to an opponent's shot is a head-down leg away action.
  • How to use ties to control the opponent with a thumb block or create offense with a snap and go behind, snap and shoot, and how to snap an opponent after a fake shot attempt.
  • A drill that will allow a wrestler to open an offensive scoring opportunity from a half sprawl or full sprawl reaction.

Coach Jackson also covers efficient ways of finishing a single leg when the opponent is using a shin whizzer as well as a high-crotch from the crackdown position.

Counter Offense

Next, Jackson demonstrates how good defense can open scoring opportunities. He touches on:

  • How to run corners in order to create scoring opportunities on your opponent after defending their shot.
  • When a wrestler should use a front headlock and how to finish with a go behind, jab step near-ankle and Kendall Cross's jab step variation.
  • The mentality needed to instantly switch from a defensive to an offensive mindset.

Coach Jackson provides insight into how a wrestler should always be looking to score and how to capitalize on a defensive situation by turning it into an offensive situation. These skills can help an average wrestler become a dominant wrestler by opening up more scoring opportunities.

with Mohamed 'Bogy' Abdelfatah,
U.S. Greco-Roman National Team Assistant Coach;
2006 World Champion (84 kg);
3x Olympian for Egypt;
over 25 medals in international competition

The best wrestlers in the world have one thing in common: they can control their opponent from the start of the match to the end of the match. By controlling an opponent throughout the match, wrestlers have the ability to create opportunities for offensive attacks and shut down their opponent's opportunity to score.

This video featuring U.S. Greco-Roman National Team Assistant Coach Mohamed 'Bogy' Abdelfatah will help you develop an understanding of how to open scoring opportunities off initial contact. Coach Abdelfatah demonstrates two primary ways to make initial contact in order to gain control of your opponent and score. He also demonstrates how to develop a series of attacks off these initial control positions and explains the importance of having an "A", "B", and "C" plan of attack.

Develop a Series of Attacks to Score

Learn how the initial control of an opponent allows a wrestler to develop a series of attacks based on their opponent's reaction to a set-up. Abdelfatah explains why understanding how an opponent may react is key in how a wrestler should prepare in order to score off the reaction. You will learn:

  • How to properly utilize an underhook or 2-on-1 in order to control your opponent to set up offensive attacks.
  • How to use your positioning to make an opponent uncomfortable, causing them to get out of position.
  • The key points to execute an underhook and transition into offensive attacks, such as a body lock and reverse headlock.

Coach Abdelfatah also demonstrates a variety of ways wrestlers can score from one attack based on the opponent's reaction, such as using an off-balance to a front headlock in the down position, duck under in the middle position, or arm throw in the upright position.

Coaching Philosophy

Coach Abdelfatah provides insight on how he had to evolve as a coach by realizing that what worked for him as an athlete may not work for someone else. He also discusses how to successfully grow a wrestler's interest in the sport and prepare athletes for competition. His presentation touches on:

  • Understanding how the skills developed in wrestling can be utilized for other sports.
  • How to integrate Greco-Roman skills into freestyle/folkstyle wrestling.
  • The importance of adjusting coaching style based on each wrestler's unique needs.
  • The importance of match analysis for competition preparation.

You also will hear Abdelfatah respond to numerous questions from the attending coaches, which helps clarify points discussed during the session.

Abdelfatah is reknowned as being one of the most technical and dominant wrestlers in the world during his time as a competitor. You will learn how he developed this reputation through gaining control of his opponent through wrist control and how he developed a scoring system off his opponents' reactions to his set-ups.
