Get to Your Feet: Wrestlers of all ages need to understand the importance of getting to their feet on the bottom. Wrestlers will learn a Stand-up System that emphasizes coming off the bottom to your feet, but also give option to the most common Stand-up Defenses. This system will not only teach wrestlers how to get out quick but will also lead to chain wrestling. Stringing moves together is the secret to truly mastering the bottom position.
Leg Defense: No matter what a wrestlers philosophy is on the bottom they MUST know how to stay out of and clear legs. Not understanding some basic skills to defend leg riders can be crippling to even the best wrestlers. Wrestlers will learn techniques and strategies to the best leg defense “KEEP THEM OUT”. They will also be taught in an easy to follow method how to clear one leg, two legs, the Power Half and more.
Wrist Control and Hand Fighting Skills: A good wrestler knows how to get hand control first and also knows how to solve the puzzle of clearing their hands from the bottom. Coach Weber will teach you how to take control immediately and win the battle once beaten. Wrestlers too often flounder around in the bottom position with no strategy for hand control. This bottom series will give you the skills and strategies to keep your wits and always get out from the bottom.
Sitouts, Switches & Rolls: Although it is good policy to strive to get to your feet from the bottom position, in the real world it doesn’t always happen. Wrestlers will learn Switch & Sitout systems along with rolls and other tricks to teach them to keep moving and chain wrestle in all situations.
Ride/Turn Defenses: Good wrestlers know where they want to be from the top position.
