    Default Post Season Match Critique

    I recently wrestled the matches, I won two. lost two . My first loss sucked. 15 - 1 and I got rolled through on a half and pinned when I was too high on him.

    But, I thought this was a good match and was wondering what I need to improve on.



    Thanks

    you need to learn how to swim a half once your opponent hits his side. also a little trick with that banana split is to wrist lock the ankle first. this is what I mean by wrist lock the ankle, if you have your left leg in you grab the ankle with your right hand reach between the legs with your left arm and grab the wrist of your right arm. yank the ankle high and sit towards your opponent shoulders or directly back. i've seen referee calls banana splits potentially dangerous done the traditional way but never like this. other wise good match.

    I lost this match, it was my last match. I wrestled horribly. Every shot I took my head was down and I stalled basically the whole time on bottom. I need to condition better in the off season for things like these.

    My next tournament will be April 9th, another 3 matches. I'll be adding some more matches up after that. Hopefully they will all be wins lol

    Just a tip about the off-season: don't worry about winning or losing. If you lose at some random freestyle tournament in April, who cares? Sure, of course it hurts to lose, but your mindset for these kinds of matches should be "I'm gonna go out there, have fun, and try what I've learned". Whether you win or not isn't really the goal; it's about getting better. You always want to win, of course, but just worry about trying your moves and getting better.

    I actually wrestle up a (few) weight classes in off-season tournaments, because, when you wrestle stronger opponents, you're forced to do your techniques correctly, or you'll be punished. I do this because I don't care about winning or losing because of a strength advantage - it's not like it goes on my "off-season record". I just worry about getting better, and sometimes, wresling bigger, stronger guys is the way to do that. I'm not telling you this story because I think the key to getting better is wrestling up weight classes, but I'm telling you as an example of not worrying about winning or losing, and just worrying about getting better.

    Just, if you lose, don't stress about it. It's when you lose in the middle of the season that you can stress about it. :P
    Am I cool now?

    SATS' advice is good. Whether you move up in weight or not, don't worry about losing in the summer. Work on moves and situations that you aren't very good at, so that you will be good at them come next November. I like that you are able to see some of your own mistakes and aren't afraid of constructive critisim. That makes you very "coachable" and will help you a lot.

    The only thing I would suggest, that you didn't already mention, is to get off your knees. It seemed like you stayed on them way too much. That is how you got reversed the last time. You had a front headlock, but your right knee was on the mat and all he had to do was grab it. Good luck and keep posting those matches.
