Turning an opponent, especially a good one, is one of the most difficult aspects of wrestling. In this video, Barry Davis demonstrates how combination wrestling can earn you more back points. And more back points leads to more wins!
Coach Davis stresses the importance of moving from one move to another in order to be more effective at scoring from the top position. He shows how a hip tilt can lead to a leg turn, a leg turn can lead to an arm bar, and an arm bar can lead back to a hip tilt. The combinations are endless. The key is to stay ahead of your opponent mentally. While your opponent is on their back, you are thinking of the next possible turn. A turn that will lead to more points and more victories.
Davis sets up his combination series with the hip tilt and builds off of it. He uses three and four-way combinations. You will learn how to effectively implement combinations using hip tilts, near wrist tilts, far wrist tilts, arm bar tilts, roll through tilts, leg turks and more. The combinations keep coming, along with the points.
Using combination wrestling from the top position will keep your opponent off balance, leaving them baffled and broken. Davis' teaching will provide you with the tools you need to become a better wrestler. You will begin to strategize, think and move quicker than your opponent. You will always have an edge on top.
Middle school and high school coaches alike will be pleased with the results they get by implementing Davis' combination series. Likewise, wrestlers will start to see immediate results as they begin to score more and more points.
Combination wrestling will help you think and move more effectively from the top position, which will confuse and break your opponent giving your wrestlers the chance to score more points - all of which leads to more victories.
