HTC Skill & Drills | Volume 1 & 2
Home Training Center Skill & Drills Volume 1 DVD
In the first part of his drill series, Coach Chertow covers a variety of drills from neutral, top, and bottom positions, including:
· The 7 Basic Skills – Virtually all moves in wrestling are based on some combination of the 7 basic skills. Stance, motion, changing levels, penetration, lifting, back-arching, and back-stepping are combined into shadow drills in order to strengthen wrestling fundamentals.
· Bottom Position Drills - Practice switches, sit outs and rolls with a partner in quick bursts to develop speed and constant motion in order to improve your position and score.
· Top Position Drills – Learn to develop constant top pressure on the bottom man and to follow his hips as he attempts reversals in order to keep control of the match.
· Hip Heist Drills – Develop the hip heist in order to improve on moves requiring strong hip motion like twisters, sit outs, switches, and freestyle turns.
These drills teach basic concepts that all wrestlers need. The drills can be incorporated into wrestling plans for wrestlers of any age and skill level, while even the most experienced coach can gain from the skill sequences taught in this video.
Home Training Center Skills & Drills, Volume 2 DVD
A continuation from Coach Chertow's Home Training Center Skill Drills instruction, this DVD covers a variety of drills from neutral, top, and bottom positions with a focus on chain drilling with partners.
1. Chain Drill from Top Position – Chain together two or three pinning combinations and tilts to score big points on your opponent like NCAA champion Anthony Robles.
2. Hand Fight Game - Develop tough hand fighting skills to improve your takedown setups in a challenging and enjoyable manner. This doubles as a great conditioning drill, too.
3. Repetition Drills from the Neutral Position – Use two or three well-practiced takedown options from any given situation to attack both sides of an opponent.
4. Tie-up Drills – Work the underhook, 2-on-1, baseball bat wrist control, loose ties and more for easy finishes on your takedowns.
5. Exercising the Core – Use straight-leg sit-ups, crunches, v-ups, and planks to strengthen the most important muscle group in wrestling.
Coach Chertow also demonstrates games that you can incorporate into your practice plans.
