The following Critique of the Week was of the wrestler wearing BLACK:
1. Great shot off the whistle just wanted to highlight that this scoring opportunity presents itself usually once a match at the youth level. The best time I feel to hit this type of shot is anytime during the second or third period after going out of bounds, or any time there is a stoppage of the match and both wrestlers come back to the centerline. Wrestlers will tend to get lazy on the whistle so it’s important to always try and slip and easy scoring takedown in there.
2. Focus on killing your opponent’s base before running arm bars. Attempting the arm bar to early will only help take pressure off the bottom opponent. Please see following videos inside library: breakdown drill and weight on and circle drill
3. When looking at the freeze frame your opponent is fighting that arm bar to the extent he is now wide open for the half on the other side. When you make the change it’s hard and fast with the key being getting your chest in position to help you finish the half. Please see following videos inside of library: breakdown to arm bar half turn
1. Focus on not leaving your hand on the mat when hitting a switch this leaves you open for an arm bar. Please see following videos inside of library: clearing hand and inside leg (danger of not clearing hand) & exploding switch
