Thread: Taking a shot

    Default Taking a shot

    Hey guys Im new here and am I glad I found a wrestling forum!

    Ok so my question is when you are shooting is it better to back step then penetrate or simply just penetrate. Cause I have seen both and am wondering is it due to different situations etc.

    Also when you take a back step, do you just step back a couple inches or is there angles. I know back stepping is to change levels and it also loads your shot but am not sure on proper technque. Thanks in advance for the replies/answers.

    If you shoot you don't take a step back. You take a step forward.

    Taking a step back is just before the shot, not during the shot. They do this so that they can lure the opponent's leg closer. But you got to be quick to react after that step back before you miss your chance on the shot.

    Yeah so you back step then penetrate right? Is it as simple as stepping back with your back leg then penetrating with your lead leg?

    Oh so thats what you mean?

    No not really. It could be just a habit for some people that they do unconsciously. It isn't necessary at all. Unless they are trying to make a setup out of it.

    You can take a front step with your back leg and still take the shot as effectively if not more.

    Oh wow thanks I tried that and I noticed that the penetration is a lot deeper. Its weird that I have never seen this before! Would you say this is more effective then attacking with your lead leg in your experiance.

    Well if I read correctly you said that you can attack with your back leg rather then your lead leg.

    You must attack with your lead leg. For example: If you step back with your left leg, then you must shoot with your right leg because its closest to your opponent.

    No, I actually didn't mean that at all. And the penetration was deeper for you? That sounds very weird, I actually tried shooting with my back legs to see your point of view but didn't have any success.

    What I was saying was that it doesn't matter whether you take that little step back or forward with your back leg in a shot unless your trying to setup for the attack or position yourself in a certain way.
