This is the video that all coaches and wrestlers have been waiting for! Learn to wrestle and score from the claw position - the same series that took Kyle Dake to four NCAA championships. Kyle Dake demonstrates his favorite series as he takes you step-by-step through the series of tilts and turns that he has used to find success.
You'll see everything from how to start on top of your opponent all the way through several scoring opportunities that the Claw provides. Dake goes step-by-step through several types of common claw rides and how to use them to score and pin your opponent. He teaches wrestlers to not be afraid to go to their back in order to create scoring opportunities.
Dake divides his instruction into six parts:
Drills - Discover six drills that can be incorporated into your daily workouts that teach the basic fundamentals needed to be successful with this claw series. These drills will help you get comfortable when your back is compromised. Exposing your back is sometimes necessary to score, but control is imperative. Learn how to establish and maintain control from a variety of positions, and pick up a few tricks that will help you feel at ease in these positions. In addition, coaches will learn how to make these drills both fun and competitive to maximize results.
Lining Up - Lining up properly from the top position can give wrestlers an advantage before the whistle even blows. They will learn how to "line up heavy" to make their opponent uncomfortable and take their mind off their defense. This will allow you to take charge and initiate your claw series.
The Claw - To successfully turn your opponents with the claw, you have to understand the intricacies of the move. Dake shows you the details of the move, along with the assorted transitions that go along with it. You will see how to apply the basic claw tilt with a thigh pry, deep waist, or wrist and how to make these transitions within the series to become an effective chain wrestler.
The Half Tilt - When your opponent stops your claw, you sometimes have to go to a peripheral move. The half tilt is one of those moves. The half tilt is very similar to the claw tilt and equally effective. You will learn how to transition from the claw to the half and its variations, including a knee switch. This is a simple change in direction that will create numerous turn opportunities when your opponent is fighting the claw.
Getting the Pin - Your team will score big points with the half tilt, but sometimes points aren't enough. Dake shows how to seal the deal and get the pin after securing back points. He teaches a power claw that can be used against opponents that are very strong and hard to turn and the step through turn for when your opponent flattens out.
Other Tilts - In addition to the claw tilt and the half tilt, you will learn to transition into a 2-on-1 tilt and a tight waist tilt and their variations. These transitions will provide you with a solid attack from a variety of angles.
This video is a superb resource for coaches who are teaching wrestlers how to wrestle from the top position. It is practical technique that will give your wrestlers the knowledge and the confidence they need to control, turn and pin their opponents.
