Thursday June 9, 2016 1 p.m. - Session X - Clinician Erkin Tadzhimetov (in 8th year as a coach at UVU. While in Uzbekistan, Erkin was a 9 time National Champion and a 3x Junior World place winner. He is currently one of the National Development coaches for USA Utah Wrestling).
Warm up & Dynamic Stretching
Review Moving on bottom-hand fighting-set up a shot, but no finishes yet, this time finish any shot.
-Opponents is in on a high single up on feet...
-Whizzer and grab other arm at the elbow (roll it out away from his body)
-Hip in and lift with both hands as you force trapped leg down and away.
*If he's too strong and won't let go...
-Free hand reaches between own legs and grabs his wrist (Looks like a 2-on-1 with your leg trapped)
-Place your trapped leg between opponent's legs
-Jump so that free leg splits his feet (slightly in front and have your foot pointed straight between his feet)
-Head should drop under his face
-Squat and let your bodyweight pull you both down
-Kick between his legs with your trapped leg as you go down
-Toss him over your trapped-leg side shoulder
-Same grip as just described
-Keep your head up this time
-Jump free leg away from his lock and land facing same direction (hip to hip)
-Donkey Kick between his legs, tossing him to his back.
Pile Driver (haha, not the illegal Fake Wrestling Move!)
-If he won't let go and his head is down tight inside your thigh...
-Trapped-leg side whizzer hand reaches under his waist
-Free hand pushes head down as free leg steps over to pinch his head between your thights.
-Free hand then grips around far hamstring
-Sit and toss him over your trapped-leg side.
-Same side arm releases waist and posts after you land so you can square your hips down and pressure in.
-Finish and settle in for backpoints or the fall.
Single Leg Counter from the mat
-Laces down and extend that leg
-Whizzer on trapped leg side (or block waist with arm) to prevent him him stepping around for angle.
-Free leg step around front and over the top of his head
-Cover his head with your hips and even more pressure with your far hip.
-Grab far hamstring for a hold and continue circling away from trapped leg all the way behind him for the score.
If he steps up to post his far leg...
-keep whizzer/waist block
-Grab post leg at the knee
-Pull it and block waist hard to rack him down to hip that is away from his post leg.
-Once he's on his hip, circle away from trapped leg like before (lift elbow if necessary) and score.
*If you were at the camp, these notes will make sense. If you were not at the camp, once the video is posted, it will be more clear. Enjoy!
