    My take on your match.
    • First of all let me say that being this is the only tape that I've seen of you wrestling, take what I say with a grain of salt.
    • On you feet you had very good shots. I liked the aggression and shot selection, however you did not finish them very well. You either need to work on coming up and elevating the double (take your opponent's hips away) or you need to become very proficient at turning the corner and getting around behind.
    • On the bottom your sitout and switch were good, in fact the caught me a bit off guard. I had to go back and watch it again to see what exactly happened. You didn't spend enough time on the bottom to really critique.
    • On the top is where you seemed to have the most difficulties. You had a very hard time keeping you man flattened out so that you could work pinning combinations and tilts. I would suggest possibly learning an Anderson (get a bar and keep your arm in, allow your opponent to build a base, then while keeping the bar grab his wrist with your free hand so if I have my opponents left arm bared with my left arm I will reach under and grab his left wrist with my right hand. Hop over so that your knees are parallel to his or slightly in front of his and on his left side. Keep both the bar and wrist and put your forehead on the mat. Then crowd him with your hips. If you lose his wrist you can catch his right arm and you will have a double bar). I suggest this move because it can be done against your opponent when he has built his base and often they feel very safe when you have the bar. I would also work on breakdowns and rides a lot. Lean a spiral ride, tight waist ankle, Cross body block/Knee sweep and remember to run your knee HARD when you do the tight waist arm crash.


    If you wrestled every match like the one I saw here is what I would tell my guys to do in order to beat you.
    • Watch out for his speed--he is deceptively fast and has a very good shot. Tie him up to reduce some of his speed and make sure to keep him underneath you when he shoots. Even though his shots are good he has problems finishing. When he is underneath, grind on him to wear him down.
    • Beware of the switch. Make sure to keep a hook in and post on the leg when you are riding. Stay in good position and follow his hips. Don't give up two. Let him get an escape but no reversals.
    • Keep moving on the bottom, he can't keep us down. Always look for an opportunity to come up. When you are coming up remember to either trap his wrist or clear your hands. Handfight as soon as you hit your feet and look for a falling switch.



    The match looked good and like I said at the beginning this is the only time I've seen you wrestle so take what I say with a grain of salt and if your coach disagrees with what I'm telling you--well smart money's with your coach, not me. If you get any more film let me know, I'd be glad to look at it for you.

    Thanks a bunch! I have a quad meet tomorrow morning so I can use all the help I can get. I will let you know when I post my other video. Or/and some of my matches tomorrow.

    Here this was my other match on the same day against a really good opponnent. Him being good or not, it was still rather disappointing because I should have done a lot better than that. So here you go, one of my short embarrassing vids. Notify me of my mistakes and what I could have done better please.

    i dont think u should go for a front headlock when you guys are in such a position, stick to the wizar and crossface until you get your hips/legs out
