Effectively Move Your Opponent

Coach Zalesky begins with an explanation of the origins of these techniques and how mastering the ability to get your opponent to move into position is key to scoring consistently. Next, you'll see how to get into an inside tie position, which is the most effective way to control your opponent. Zalesky also goes into detail about how to apply pressure and utilize the back step effectively.

Set-Ups for the Hi-C, Single Leg, and Double Leg Takedown

Coach Zalesky continues by demonstrating how inside tie-ups can be coordinated with the back step to set up several takedowns, including the hi-c, single and double leg takedowns. He also covers how to stay out of bad position on takedowns by refraining from chasing your opponent's legs, and instead moving their legs where you want them to be.

As an added bonus, Zalesky demonstrates how to best prevent being stuck under your opponent's sprawl. In all, you'll learn how to:

  • Set up a single leg shot on either leg
  • Avoid chasing your opponent's leg on a hi-c or double leg
  • Clear your opponent's arms and keep your hips under your shoulders to avoid being stuck in bad positions

Ankle Picks and Set-ups
with Jason Borrelli,
Stanford University Head Coach; All American wrestler at Central Michigan,

Jason Borrelli presents a comprehensive look at the ankle pick series. From set-ups to finishes, Borelli takes you through a wide assortment of ankle picks with critical coaching points designed to help you teach this series to your athletes, allowing them to score with ease from all kinds of angles and situations on any opponent.

Coach Borrelli shows six set-ups to ankle picks, allowing you to use the ankle pick in a variety of situations. While demonstrating these set-ups he shows 12 different takedowns from these set-ups. Topics include:

  • The Steering Wheel Ankle Pick - Learn the key points of an explosive steering wheel ankle pick, including proper footwork, level change, and hand position to make this move unstoppable.
  • Ankle Pick Set-up to a High Crotch or Low Single - Use these takedowns to counter your opponent's quick reaction to the ankle pick.
  • Ankle Pick Off Opponent's Collar Tie - Be tough against your opponent's inside collar tie and attack with your pick using these three set-ups: The shuck-by, the 2-on-1, and the elbow bind (elbow control).
  • Ankle Pick from an Underhook - Pull your opponent in tight with an underhook tie and attack the nearside with a single leg attack or the far side with a pick.
  • Ankle Pick from a Front Headlock - Use this punishing position to keep your opponent's head down and out of position while you perform picks to both the near and far ankles.
The technique is broken down into easily teachable steps and is shown from many different angles. Coach Borrelli does a good job building the skills from simple to complex, which will allow you to finish ankle picks cleanly and avoid scrambles when taking down their opponents

In order to keep an opponent from anticipating the pick, Coach Borrelli also shows other shots that can be taken from the same set-ups. Coach Borelli shows several problems that occur while attempting these takedowns and thoroughly explains solutions to these problems.

A large portfolio of takedowns, these techniques have helped Coach Borrelli's athletes set school records and raise Stanford wrestling to a new level.
