    Hey thanks for all of the advice...I was talking to this guy a couple of days ago and he said when comes to set ups remember four things. Elbow control, Inside control, Wrist control, and set ups from no tie up. He also said to always be moving the guy. Do you think that this was good advice.

    Yes, it is.. that goes in line with the "circle with your opponent." portion of this post: http://www.thewrestlingtalk.com/high...html#post74324

    Sorry about being a pest, but....In trying to simplify setups for myself I came up with that there are set ups from your tie, from your opponents tie, and from no tie. Dont know if thiss makes any sense or not.

    A big part of setting things up from the tie is to never tie up ear to ear. Tie up forehead to forehead and keep him in front of you. This will keep your options open and it won't shut down your offense like ear to ear tie ups are.

    I agree with everything that has been said. As all my coaches have said "wrestling is a game of angles". Make sure you create the angle you need before you shoot.

    I would also like to add one thing.

    When you are setting up the shot (a lot of great advice in above posts) make sure that you stay in position. A lot of wrestlers will try to set up a shot but lose their position thus opening them up to get taken down.

    This was my go-to move in college (along with the arm drag). To make the set-up even more effective, just as he is stepping up, jerk his head hard away from the stepping foot (to your left in the above example). This will get him to put even more weight on it and make it harder to counter. You must get the timing right so that his left foot and your right knee hit the mat at the same time.

    Chance said it best...create angles. With that being said if tying up get your forhead in his temple. that will give you a great angle for a single leg.

    yes i think one of the best low intensity wrestling drills out there is having two wrestlers fight for position by sticking the forhead into the ear/temple. I would recommend this drill for setups.
