Coach Lennie Zalesky possesses over 30 years of coaching experience and has seen it all. A huge key to his success was not getting stuck underneath opponents on their shots. In this video, Zalesky delivers many of the techniques he's taught his wrestlers over the years to move their opponents and avoid getting stuck in a disadvantage situation.

Effectively Move Your Opponent

Coach Zalesky begins with an explanation of the origins of these techniques and how mastering the ability to get your opponent to move into position is key to scoring consistently. Next, you'll see how to get into an inside tie position, which is the most effective way to control your opponent. Zalesky also goes into detail about how to apply pressure and utilize the back step effectively.

Set-Ups for the Hi-C, Single Leg, and Double Leg Takedown

Coach Zalesky continues by demonstrating how inside tie-ups can be coordinated with the back step to set up several takedowns, including the hi-c, single and double leg takedowns. He also covers how to stay out of bad position on takedowns by refraining from chasing your opponent's legs, and instead moving their legs where you want them to be.

As an added bonus, Zalesky demonstrates how to best prevent being stuck under your opponent's sprawl. In all, you'll learn how to:

  • Set up a single leg shot on either leg
  • Avoid chasing your opponent's leg on a hi-c or double leg
  • Clear your opponent's arms and keep your hips under your shoulders to avoid being stuck in bad positions

Wrestlers of all levels struggle from one important position in the sport: the bottom. Coach Mark Manning goes over three main principles every wrestler should master to be able to score from the bottom position in this informative video.

Focusing on the bottom wrestler and what constitutes good position are key to scoring points from the bottom. The three key principles to focus on are motion, distance and hand control. Once these three principles are mastered, your wrestles will be able to score on all opponents from the bottom position.

Key Principles

  • Manning touches on the following essentials of wrestling from the bottom:
  • Off the whistle, constant motion will allow your wrestlers to get weight off their hands and get pressure back into their opponents.
  • Once weight is off their hands, wrestlers then focus on ways to create distance between their opponent's hip and their own.
  • Finally, hand control will be established before attempting to escape or reverse their opponent.

Additional Nuggets

Coach Manning adds additional insights into his coaching philosophy, going in-depth into what makes his Nebraska wrestling program special. He also touches on team unity, athlete leadership, focusing on the fundamentals and length of practices.

This video goes into detail about fundamental positions and actions that will give your athletes all they need to get off bottom.

A fantastic resource for any wrestling coach!

Lennie Zalesky Wrestling 3-Pack
WRD-05720A:

with Lennie Zalesky,
Cal Baptist University Head Coach;
has coached wrestlers to 30 All-American awards and seven individual national championships;
2013 NCWA National Champions;
former UC Davis Head Coach;
2007 Pac-10 Coach of the Year;

The 2-on-1 is a tie that came onto the scene back when wrestlers from the Soviet Union used it to dominate their opponents in the international wrestling scene. It is also commonly known as a "Russian Tie." Since then, the tie-up has gone on to become synonymous as an offensive tie-up in the same league as an under-hook or an inside tie.

In this video, Lennie Zalesky shows you how to use the 2-on-1 and the baseball grip as controlling ties to create multiple leg attack and throwing opportunities.

The 2-on-1

There are two ways to hold a 2-on-1. The first and most common is when you have one hand on the wrist and the other under the armpit. The second is where you grab your own wrist and have a hold, which is best described as a reverse figure four. Coach Zalesky shows you how to attack utilizing the reverse figure four 2-on-1 to control your opponent's movement and put yourself in position to score a takedown.

Zalesky shows how to use the 2-on-1 to drag your opponent to the floor and get the takedown, use it as a lock/hold to stand your opponent up and get hip-to-hip to attack with a snatch single, as well as multiple attack options contingent on how your opponent reacts, including:

  • High crotch
  • Double leg
  • Over-the-head throw
  • Head and arm throw
  • Polish throw

You will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the reverse figure-four 2-on-1 and how dominant it can be.

The Baseball Grip

The baseball grip is a tie-up that is not well known, and a tie-up Coach Zalesky himself admits not many coaches teach their athletes to defend. You can use the baseball grip to get one up on your competition and to confuse and control them to create numerous attacking opportunities.

Coach Zalesky begins by showing a couple ways to get into the position, and explains why it is a hard position for your opponent to get out of once you have it. From the baseball grip, you'll see Zalesky present numerous attacking opportunities, showing you how to get to a high crotch, single leg, front headlock, and polish throw. All these attacking options depend on how your opponent reacts and which ones you favor.

Coach Zalesky ends by quickly recapping all the attacks he has shown on the video as a reminder of the myriad of options available. This is an excellent instructional video dealing with the reverse figure four version of the 2-on-1 and the baseball grip; two tie-ups that are not understood well by many coaches and wrestlers, but are highly effective in creating offensive leg attacks and throwing opportunities.

Short offense is a position that isn't often taken advantage of by wrestlers, because most coaches don't focus on it nearly as much as they do on leg attacks, hand fighting and mat work. This is a shame because being good in the short offense position is an opportunity to score easy points off your opponent's shots, whilst expending minimal energy.
