    First varsity match as a sophomore. wrestling at 152. I managed to win 5-2. The usual varsity guy at our school is injured so I get my shot for the next couple weeks. I don't know many pinning combinations at all. Actually the only two moves I work for a pin are the half and nearside cradle. Any advice that will help me is welcome.

    edit:
    I'm the guy in the black singlet.

    Well the injured guy probably doesn't have much to do, you could ask him for some pointers, or drill with him. Or your coach.

    You look a little flat footed in your stance. Try to stay forward on your toes. You don't need a lot of moves, just master a few.

    Good job. Nice double leg takedown. Drill your ass off, it isn't "fun" but it is how you improve.

    Congrats on your win. You tend to take your weight off the opponent - on your knees when you are riding. Stay heavy on the hips.

    Make sure when you grab a leg or go for a single leg like in 0:45 you level change and be to their side with your head in their ribs.

    When on top don't put your arm over his shoulder. And always work for wrist control and flatting them out.

    Next time try to get the whole match so we can help you more.

    yea keep your hips on him and heavy

    one thing a good guy told me was that you shoudl stay on one half of his body all your weight on half his body and reach under one armpit and grab your opponents opposite side tricept as a good counterbalance. This is what a college wrestler all american told me so ive been working on it recently and my partners have told me it feels really heavy on top

    good stand up and good finish on the shot. You need to get tougher on top, move more on your feet
