"Bigger guys" wrestle differently than "little guys"! In this video, Olympic heavyweight Kerry McCoy covers four areas to help your heavyweight be in better position to control his opponent to wear him down to get in better position to score. McCoy begins with a brief overview of proper positioning, which will provide your wrestler with a good base of knowledge to improve his offense, counter offense and defense. Next, he covers four of the most common tie-ups that heavyweights find themselves using, including his favorite, the "double biceps." McCoy describes how your heavyweight can defend against these ties and how to use them to move his opponent in position for him to score. From tie-ups, McCoy moves to front headlocks and breaks down three different variations for your heavyweight to use. He closes with a couple of quick finishes your wrestler can use that can score a quick fall from the feet. This video is a great tool that will show your heavyweight how to take any position from the feet and create an advantage. Even though this tape is geared towards heavyweights, the fundamentals described can be effectively taught to, and used by, wrestlers in any weight class.

Olympian Kerry McCoy presents an in-depth look at two of his favorite moves that have helped him become one of the top heavyweight wrestlers in the world. McCoy begins with a step-by-step look at the slide-by, breaking down the technique into three easy-to-understand steps. From there he shows two set-up and finish combinations your wrestler can use to score. In addition, McCoy demonstrates three other combinations your wrestler can use if his opponent tries to counter the slide-by. The overhook session begins with McCoy dissecting the three keys to a proper overhook and how to get into an overhook position. With emphasis on that strong position, McCoy shows two finishes - Step Around and the Step Across - to score with from the overhook. He also demonstrates how to use the overhook to counter opponents offensive attacks. An excellent tape that will add to your wrestlers takedown arsenal.
