    Double Leg Takedown

    One of the first offensive techniques taught to beginning wrestlers is the double leg takedown. As previously said, the approach begins by firing in on the opposition. Once in position, you seize both sides of your opponent's knees. Then, while pulling your opponent's legs into you, thrust forward with your legs and apply pressure to the hip of your opponent. The stance can also be used to lift the opponent off the mat and then toss him back onto it. Repeated use of this technique is essential for mastery. You should be able to carry out each of the aforementioned actions in a single fluid motion. Learn this, and you'll be a double leg.

  3. Wrestling is one of the oldest forms of grappling, with methods dating back hundreds of thousands of years. When compared to other martial arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a relatively new one. The heart of bjj dates back hundreds of years, yet what we see today in tournaments like the ADCC and the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation is a relatively new sort of martial art and sport. Wrestling can aid in the development of your bjj technique in a variety of ways. Wrestling and bjj have so many similarities that it's almost ridiculous. So many guards and positions in Jiu Jitsu end up in a position that is probably also used in wrestling. Take the half guard, for example, either bottom or top. In bjj, you use your underhook to go up for many of the finest sweeps when playing half guard on the bottom; this puts you in dogfight position. This is one of the most popular fighting positions in wrestling. If someone tries to do an underhook get up when you're on top half guard, you'll utilize a whizzer. In wrestling, this is also one of the principles. Check out this video of a half guard sweep with an underhook to see how similar they are. The Only Difference is the uniform!! As you can see from the examples above, wrestling is very popular in bjj. This is one of many situations when wrestling could be the differentiator that separates you from your opponent and helps you to win the match. Wrestling can be used in a variety of other situations in Jiu Jitsu. The De La Riva guard, for example, is extremely popular nowadays; there are numerous sweeps from the De La Riva guard that will place you in a single leg or standing takedown position. Obviously, grips play a part, and wrestling does not employ a gi, but the fundamental principles of finishing takedowns and connecting takedowns from one to the next are present. Wrestling can help you develop your sweeps in butterfly guard, Reverse De La Riva Guard, and many other guards.
  4. The notion that a takedown will help you establish control so you can work for a pin or a submission is similar in both cases. There are movements in both genres that skip right to the eventual outcome. Without establishing control on top first, you can throw someone or attempt a pinning combination from the neutral position in wrestling. Submissions are possible in jiu-jitsu from both the neutral and guard positions, thus the traditional sequences aren't always followed. We'll look at what benefits wrestlers can expect from cross-training in jiu-jitsu and vice versa, because cross-training improves both sides. In many ways, wrestling outperforms BJJ, particularly when it comes to explosive and devastating takedowns. Yes, BJJ teaches you how to defend against takedowns, but skilled wrestlers would breeze right through it like butter. If we're talking about MMA fights, for example, this is critical. BJJ trips and throws are effective as long as the opponent lacks a strong takedown defense. We've seen how they struggle when faced with a nasty striker with a strong takedown defense. Wrestlers, on the other hand, have no such issues because they can score takedowns against anyone. Wrestling's other edge is its strength and unrelenting tempo. Wrestlers are all powerful, explosive, and have enough cardio to keep up a fast pace for days. They are rarely weary, and having them on top of everything is exhausting. Not to mention the strength of their slams, which have been known to knock opponents out cold in MMA. Slams like suplexes have the potential to kill a person, which has happened on the streets numerous times. Yes, BJJ has more weapons and is more self-defense oriented. Make no mistake about that, though. Wrestling is no laughing matter. It is a combat sport that prepares you to compete according to the regulations. However, its principle and tactics are transferable to any freestyle fighting.

  6. A ridiculously powerful lower back? Check. What is a gorilla's grip strength? Check. Exceptionally powerful glutes and hamstrings? Check. Anyone with lats and biceps capable of finishing a single leg? Check. Abs that are bulletproof? Check. If those aren't enough reasons to deadlift, check out Dean Somerset's list of 75 reasons why deadlifting is awesome. Deadlifting is difficult. It may scrape your shins, make you fatigued, and most likely humble you. However, greatness necessitates doing things you're not good at or don't want to do. This is one of the best five lifts for wrestling because it essentially trains every muscle you'll need to become a better wrestler. Furthermore, while I enjoy squats, a deadlift is difficult to cheat. I've heard numerous accounts of high school athletes "squatting" about 1/4 of the way to parallel and calling it a squat. The beauty of a deadlift is that you either pick it up or don't. It could be the most accurate indicator of wrestler strength. Way: Bend down with your hips slightly higher than your knees, ensuring the bar touches your shins. To begin the lift, make sure you have tension in your arms, a neutral spine, weight on your heels, and an alternate grip (one overhand, one underhand). Lift the bar while keeping a consistent joint angle at both the knees and hips once the bar is set (i.e. knees and hips must straighten out at the same time).

    "Wrestling" A Safe Journey

    Strength and conditioning programs that are effective should be supported. Ascertain that your wrestler is performing the warm-up movements correctly, with optimal body mechanics and form. Your wrestler will be safer and more successful in competition if they work hard in practice. Allowing your child to reduce or deplete food and hydration consumption in order to fit into a certain weight class is not a good idea. It has the potential to be harmful to your child's health and safety in the long run. Tell your wrestler that he or she should fight hard and fairly. Encourage your wrestler to practice the grips and movements that have been taught to him or her. Encourage people to avoid using unlawful or made-up grips and maneuvers. Wrestlers should be urged to use ear protection and protective equipment. Wrestlers should shower before and after exercises, wash their workout clothing daily, dry their skin well, and clean their mats regularly to prevent the risk of skin disorders. Wearing street shoes on the mats or wrestling shoes off the mats is not recommended. Wrestlers with open wounds, broken skin, or skin disorders should not compete until the wounds have healed or the wrestler has been cleared to do so by a qualified physician. If the athlete is allowed to wrestle, the afflicted skin should be covered to prevent cross-contamination. Without current written documentation from a physician stating that the skin condition/disease is not communicable and that the wrestler's participation in practices and wrestling events would not be harmful to others with whom the wrestler comes into contact, no wrestler with a suspicious skin condition/disease shall be permitted to wrestle.
