  • 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.
  • Hip Heisting - Learn to use a powerful hip heist with your switch or sit-out to score 1, 2, or 5 points.
  • Rolls - Learn how the cut roll and cross wrist roll can be used for all ages and weight classes. See how to hit these moves when the top man is applying a lot of pressure down and a stand-up is not an option. Coach Chertow demonstrates these rolls with Peterson and headlock finishes to pin your opponent.
  • Advanced Granby Rolls - Execute the flip Granby and the "ninja flip", a standing Granby variation designed so you can escape from your toughest opponents.
  • Leg Ride Defense - There is no position more punishing for the bottom wrestler than when his opponent has his legs in. Learn to defend both parallel and cross body rides by "swimming out" or using the "kamikaze roll."

with John Smith,
Oklahoma State University Head Coach;

The stand-up is a high percentage escape that is very complex. The technique for the stand-up has to be good or you won't be able to get away from a good rider. Coach Smith begins with his philosophy on the move and some key points on finding a base position that is comfortable for you. From there he demonstrates the inside leg stand-up - from the base position to getting away once you reach your feet. He goes step-by-step through the move, highlighting the key points as he goes along. From there he shows how to successfully hit the stand-up versus three common breakdowns - the chop, ankle pick and spiral ride. He also includes a stand-up variation for heavyweight wrestlers. Throughout the presentation, Smith calls on his brother, Lee Roy Smith, Executive Director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame and Museum, (and former Arizona State University Head Coach, World Silver medalist and NCAA Champion) to complement his teaching points. Through this DVD, Coach Smith presents the key points to help you get off the mat quicker and make the stand-up and make it your "go to escape."
