    Default Re: Anyone know some good moves from the Bottom?

    Going along with What Gold said, If you have a great standup, Then you shouldn't have to work technique

    Most of the times, if I'm wrestling someone who's new. I like to work a Sit out Turn in, If I'm lucky I'll catch them unbalanced and get the 2 points. If they follow me then It comes down to either

    1) Let them break me down I get right back up to base and hit them with a roll (hook the arm that around the waist get perpendicular and roll) standup.

    2) Get your hips out and Tripod up

    Hate to say it but

    Standup standup standup standup

    If you get mat returned, while in mid air, instead of going crazy flailing your arms, tuck your knees into your chest and get ready to land in referee's position so you can stand up again.

    stand up should definitely be your go to move from bottom. the key on bottom is to just keep moving and create space and hip seperation

    Find Using the Stand Up?

    For some reason, in my matches, when I try to use the stand up, my opponent is usually faster than me and prevents it. At first i thought this had to do with my speed but then I tried other moves from bottom and they worked. When I try to stand up, my opponent usually is able to bring me back down to the mat before I can finish it, does anyone have any advice? (other than Hayden)

    Good reversals would be switch and sit outs.

    It sounds like you need to train your explosiveness and strength in your legs. But that is something you can work on. Do weighted squats for strength (do them fast). And do jumping squats for explosiveness (jump as high as you can). Jumping squats will also train your leg endurance and a bit cardio.

    have hand control, if he brings you down control his hands from the bottom, once you have his hands explode up and spin like mad.

    Yes you always want to have hand control as you get up. Peel their hands away and put it in your back pocket and turn around. Do all this as your exploding up. Hips forward and away, and use your back to put pressure on him.

    Pink nikes is right. Not that working on explosiveness won't help you, because that is huge, but explosiveness without hand control won't get you much most of the time.

    Standups are all about hand control and attitude, IMO.
