Cover: championship signature move series: keith gavin's underhooks & drags
Championship Signature Move Series: Keith Gavin's Underhooks & Drags
with Keith Gavin, University of Virginia Assistant Coach;
member of the U.S. National Freestyle Wrestling Team;
2008 NCAA Champion at Pittsburgh; 2x All American; 2x EWL Wrestler of the Year; 120 collegiate wins

This underhook series will help you improve your offense on your feet from one of the most dominant ties in wrestling. U.S. National Freestyle wrestler Keith Gavin presents his underhook takedown series from tie-up to finish. He presents takedowns from both the lead leg side as well as the opposite leg side.

No matter what your opponent's reaction, Coach Gavin offers a scoring option for the offensive wrestler. Rather than providing several different variations off a single position, Coach Gavin breaks decision making into a series of simple reads: always do A unless he does X, in which case you do B. Instead of just a few new moves, you'll get an extremely effective system for attacking with underhooks.

Being able to use an underhook off your strong side is the most fundamental of skills. Coach Gavin shares a solid series of attacks from this position, as well as entries into the position. The series starts with a throw-by to a single leg takedown. This first takedown is presented with a high-level finish, as well as low-level finishes on the mat when your opponent counters with a whizzer. Coach Gavin adds options for a double leg takedown, as well as a front headlock option to a go-behind to be used when the single leg is not available.

Coach Gavin also gives four takedowns to use when you get into the even more dominant, double underhook position. You will be able to score with a throw-by, snap/front headlock, a footsweep or a modified arm drag from double underhooks.

Opponents will often grab collar ties or wrists to try and slow down an opponent. Coach Gavin shows some of his signature drags to deal with this scenario. In addition, you'll see some of his favorite takedowns from an opposite lead leg, including a high-crotch, front headlock to a go-behind, a shrug, inside trip and an arm drag.

This is an excellent series that teaches the most of the fundamentals of an underhook as well as some slightly less common positions that are very specific to coach Coach Gavin's game.

Cover: elbow pass series: beating the collar tie
Elbow Pass Series: Beating the Collar Tie
with Matt Azevedo, Drexel University Head Coach;
former Cornell University Assistant Coach;
2x U.S. National Team member; U.S.Open Freestyle National Champion

The collar tie is one of the most common tie ups in wrestling. Every wrestler needs to know how to clear it and use it against his opponent. In this instructional presentation, Matt Azevedo shows how to clear a collar tie using his elbow pass series. Not only does he demonstrate how to clear the tie, he also demonstrates how to score once the tie has been cleared.

Coach Azevedo breaks down the elbow pass technique into its fundamental positions and identifies three key steps that develop great habits in using it. He also discusses places that less experienced wrestlers will falter and shows how to correct them. He shares several drills to reinforce the fundamentals. The purpose of the drill progression is to get wrestlers familiar with moving their hands and feet in order to get the proper motion to break a collar tie, and develop muscle memory to execute the move in match conditions.

Opponents react in multiple ways to the elbow pass. Coach Azevedo demonstrates seven different attacks off the elbow pass that can be used depending on how your opponent reacts. These attacks include high-level singles, low-level single, comeback single, high crotch, front headlocks and ankle pick. He discusses favorite leg attacks, how to use them to set up other ties or how to attack when no leg is presented .

The elbow pass is a key position that any wrestler (beginner to advanced) can benefit from using properly. Many wrestlers, novice to highly experienced, attack with a collar tie and control the position very well. This presentation teaches how to take away that advantage. Add to it the plethora of attacks that are available and you can move from being controlled to controlling almost every position on your feet.

It will be useful from the beginning to anyone that watches it, from grade school wrestling all the way up to high school. I particularly enjoyed the "Ankle Pick" section, as I believe his adjustment to the move doubles its effectiveness. - Chester Chen
