Thread: Please critique my match

    Default Please critique my match

    I would love if some coaches told me what I'm doing wrong. I felt like I had tunnel vision the whole tournament and am trying to get as much perspectives as possible on how to improve my performance so I can make improvements early in the season. I'm the one in the blue. Thank you.

    In part 1... you get dumped to your back because you're on your knees when he has you in the fronthead. The second your in a front head you need to be aware of knee trips/blocks.. Get off your knees..

    In part two you should have pinned him. You need to be more aware of where your hips are. Earlier on though *57secs on* you miss a TD you should always get. When you're in the front head there, grab your opponents left (or which ever side your on) elbow, extend it towards you, put your head in his side and head block. Against that kid it will work 100% of the time.

    You need to be tougher. You are, undoubtedly, better than your opponent was You're significantly more athletic but lack body control (its developed over time..) You need to finish more aggressively. When you get in on a shot don't stop just because you executed it properly to that point. When you hit him, hit him hard and make him notice you. (by notice you I mean - never want you to take him down like that again.) The impact and subsequent takedown should hurt both of you but he is the one who will break. Don't stop on your shots. The second you touch his legs double your power and finish the move. Most people explode INTO their takedowns - you want to do both. It may feel uncomfortable being that explosive at first (especially in practice) but once you do it in a match you'll understand the difference.

    Thanks for the critique, it helped a lot. Looking at it now, everything you said was spot on.

    Is this the front head block?:

    Yep. and he is a perfect clinician for it - its the bread and butter move at the HS (apple valley) he went to.

    i agree with schlottke, but here are some alternatives if you'd like. from that front headlock position you can try either a cement mixer or a simmon's cradle. I have a kid that I taught the simmon's cradle and he has a 90% pin rate when he attempts it. the very beginning of the first vid, you spend all your time tied up ear to ear. ear to ear gives you no advantage, it gives both wrestlers the same moves.

    Check out the master- Cael Sanderson, and how he approaches the same takedown you did in frame 1, but follows-through better:



    I would take what schlottke said one step further- you should keep your opponent off HIS knees. Notice how he pivoted on the very knee that you were wrapped around on. Sanderson correctly lifts that knee to make his opponent more unstable.

    In frame 2 you again failed to follow-through. Check out the same takedown, but done by the 2010 NCAA champ, Jason Ness of MN which won him the match in the last 10 seconds:



    He takes a high-thigh double leg, pushes, trips, and even gets back points.

    Gable goes into it further here:



    As for cradles/guillotines/spladles, go no further than observe what Ronnie Ribniak does on various YouTube videos- this relatively unknown wrestler is incredible. I list his YouTube videos here: http://oaktonhswrestling.webs.com/ot...lingvideos.htm

    Incredible match, BTW. You both did very well!

    Having just watched it once my initial impressions:

    1. Do a better job of controlling the ties. Another thing I noticed while you had a nice single leg attempt; you got to the leg but, were unable to finish. 2. you shot to the leg and not through; the objective is to get there and finish. Finish hard but, in control. The better the set-up the more success you will have finishing. I am going to rewatch it a few times.


    I will point out you never quit in that match; you kept getting after it. great attitude a few tweaks here or there and that match should be yours.

    Improve your shots -KEEP your head up and always look for your opponent's head when you are deep in on a knee -look where you are scrambling and have his leg bent-reach up for the head and lock a cradle in and he is out .
    GREAT EFFORT-technique will come -head and back straight at ALL times .
    The effort impressed me -a hard thing to do. Most guys would have been stuck in the first .
    Good LUCK and stay healthy !!
