Cover: the art of hand fighting
The Art of Hand Fighting
with Mark Ironside,
2x NCAA Champ and 4x All-American at the University of Iowa;1998 Dan Hodge Trophy winner

Hand fighting is an essential skill that all wrestlers need to know. Two-time National Champion Mark Ironside teaches you skills and drills to become an effective hand fighter that will make you a more dangerous wrestler on your feet.

Hand fighting is a mentality and that it is about moving your opponent so that you can set up your attacks. Coach Ironside teaches hand fighting in a far different way than most. His philosophy is that a high intensity must be maintained throughout the match and that it is a mentality to dominate at all times. He stresses that your wrestlers should set a fast pace and that they should maintain that pace throughout the match.

Coach Ironside covers the basic strategy of hand fighting in the neutral position, such as not reaching, keeping elbows close, using heavy hands, applying constant pressure, and re-attacking immediately. He demonstrates how to correctly close the gap when hand fighting, which allows you to stay in a good position and allows you to move your opponent easier.

He gives several drills that you can put your kids through that will improve their positioning for the entire match in a very short time, including a push-pull drill that teachers your wrestlers to move their hands and feet together. From these hand fighting techniques Coach Ironside teaches how to get and use four control ties, such as the 2-1, double inside tie and inside tie/wrist combination. He shows how to control and clear these ties that will move your opponent, especially when most people like to get ear to ear. Each of these ties work together to create a potent offense that will wear your opponent out. While demonstrating these ties he also shows several takedowns.

Finally, Coach Ironside shows how to drill hand fighting with a partner and how to clear a front head lock.

Don't just hand fight, use it to create an offense that cannot be beat! Let Mark Ironside show you how to enhance your hand fighting skills to score from the neutral position.

Cover: the art of breakdowns: creating constant grinding pressure
The Art of Breakdowns: Creating Constant Grinding Pressure
with Mark Ironside,
2x NCAA Champ and 4x All-American at the University of Iowa;1998 Dan Hodge Trophy winner

The difference between a good wrestler and a great wrestler is knowing how to break and keep your opponent down. Dan Hodge Trophy winner Mark Ironside teaches you the skills necessary to dominate your opponents from the top position. His techniques center on a constant, grinding, pressure and the importance of always having forward pressure from the top position.

Coach Ironside demonstrates four breakdowns that span all the various levels of wrestling, and explains the finer points of each. He shows the Chop & Drive, Deep Waist Far Ankle, Spiral Ride, and Hook Ankle. Ironside teaches six effective turns from these breakdowns, showing you the best option to use depending on how the bottom man reacts. He demonstrates a base drill that will make your wrestlers work both sides of their opponent, training them to flow from one breakdown to another and completely wear out an opponent. It also serves as a great conditioning drill.

He concludes the video by demonstrating how to return your opponent to the mat once they reach their feet. You'll see two versions - how to bring him to the mat by elevating him and another by rotating him down from his hips.

Go from good to great with these top breakdowns and skills.
