Learn to Break Opponents
Wrestling for Dan Gable you learned how to win the close matches, wrestle to dominate and BREAK your opponents. These things are very hard to do on a consistent basis without knowing how to grind, turn or pin your opponent from the top position. A very small percentage of wrestlers can wrestle that style without being effective on top and these wrestlers are extremely athletic. These athletes are few and far between and these athletes are also vulnerable to a lesser athlete that is tough in all positions.
The Missing Link
I consider myself very lucky. My high school coach, Dan Mashek, and my college coach, Dan Gable, were both big believers in a punishing style from the top position and they were both very knowledgeable in the skills need to wrestle that style. I have noticed that many wrestlers are very close to being good wrestlers from the top position but they are just missing minor technical skills. Although techniques from the top position may be easier to learn, top wrestling is an art and most coaches and wrestlers are missing the finer points.
If you aren’t a dominant wrestler from the top position then I encourage you to purchase my Ultimate Turns and Pins Series. The turn series and drills that you will be exposed to will give you the road map to becoming the punishing wrestler I have described on this page. It will be up to you to master 1-2 of the series, force them on your opponents and develop the attitude needed. Top wrestling is easy to learn, but it is hard work to execute. Wrestlers need to embrace the challenge, because their is no better feeling than having a tough opponent meltdown under your relentless pressure.
