    Default Re: Sitting Out

    For sit outs: The side that your opponent has his hand around your waist you have to have hand control. For the other side, you pinch in your arm together facing upward. Hips up and your body pressure should be on him. Put the arm that you have hand control with in your back pocket as you proceed to get a reversal.

    OR, tuck after hand control.

    I love to do the Peterson but am never able to successfully get on my butt when live wrestling

    If you have success getting onto your butt, the Peterson is a must-have move during matches.

    My advice is to do an explosive stand up 95% of the time.

    Explode up and out and rip at the hands on your way up.

    Do your best to stay up and create space between your hips and your opponents.

    If you get brought back down to the mat, immediately pop back up and fight to control your opponent's hands.

    Ground&Pound gets my vote. A really good stand-up is really tough to stop. Get your head up and arch the back to create back pressure, get your hips away, get your hands free. As you break free look to attack the legs.

    R.I.P. Cyrano and Roxanne.

    If I could go back to my competitive days, I'd do more (only) stand ups.

    I was a Peterson guy and had a lot of success with it...up until a certain point.

    Petersons and other fancy bottom moves can get you in trouble against a really good wrestler, at least that's my experience.

    I was going to say the same thing. I hated practicing standups because they were so boring, but it's definitely the best move from the bottom.

    The great thing about stand ups is that if you develop a great stand up, you don't have to spend as much time working on developing your technique from the bottom, because like they have said, a great standup is very hard to stop. Then you can spend more time developing your offense and top technique.

    Take Mike Pucillo for example (he was an NCAA champ last year), I'm pretty sure no one rode him for more than 20 seconds last year, and maybe even the year before. All he does is a stand up. He is so good at it that he spends almost no time on bottom
