    Default back arches to throw

    The key to a good throw is popping your hips hard and arching your back. Your feet usually need to be planted close together the generate the power needed. Helps if your opponent is pushing into you, it is hard to throw someone who is backing up. I suggest you practice throwing a teammate or a dummy onto a soft crash mat.

    Unles you are wrestling Greco, changes are you wont' actually do a whole lot of big throws but it's still a good skill to0 learn. If you are relatively new to throwing, hip tosses and arm throws are easier and less risky to do in a freestyle match.

    Also, the term is suplay, not suflay. ;^)

    I actually think Arm-Spin is not correct in his assessment for chances to throw in freestyle. As you will see if you watch any world championships, the US guys unfortunately get tossed a lot from standing, usually when fighting off a take down from front to back position (think duck under to standing defense). Here's a very unfortunate example of that when Dan Dennis gets tossed by the Russian:

    I've actually posed this question before, it's not clear to me how much amplitutde throwing our US freestylers do in practice. I do not think I've ever seen a US freestyler throw someone for three outside of a headlock or arm throw.

    I remeber seeing more than one throw from Daniel Cormier in some world's championship matches. It was in the early rounds however. I agree with you that I can't imagine right now a US wrestler getting a throw aginst a world class wrestler.

    Maybe American guys get thrown a lot, but I think that 5-pt throws in freestyle are relatively rare. The vast majority of matches (in my experience as a lifelong freestyler and watching WC vidoes) do not feature a 5-pointer. There are a few top level guys who specialize in big moves- Mashezov is one, Geduev is another- but for most guys it probably happens a handful of times in a career.
