Coach Lang's Notes from UVU Wrestling Camp - Session VI
Wednesday June 8, 2016 9 a.m. - Session VI - Clinician Ethen Lofthouse (Ethen is in his 2nd year as an assistant at UVU. Previously was a 4X Utah State Champion and won multiple national titles during his prep career. A four year national qualifier for the University of Iowa, Ethen was a 2 x All American for the Hawkeyes).
*If you are wondering where the notes for Session V are, it was strictly Live Wrestling with full matches and I did not take notes.
Warm up - Drill - Review
-Take down and continue to drive in hard, transitioning immediately to breakdowns and turns (no pause)
Ethen's Top Riding
-Get his and your weight up on his hands
-Spiral forward to chop
*Variation... Start on right, Far Ankle and Tightwaist, Dig Tightwaist as deep as possible and switch sides to chop and realease Tightwaist to collect the Cross Wrist
-If he's basing up, block the far knee and drive forward
-Shoulder pressure tight into him
-Grab Turk-leg right at the knee
-Pull and drive up toward his head and step back (high leg steps over top)
-Shelf his leg and then step and scoop for the Turk
-Keep hips tight
-Elevate Turk Leg
-Do not walk toward his head
-Use his leg and hip-in to turn his hips and his upper body will follow.
-Release Crosswrist and scoop his head
-Your Turk Leg never touches the ground
-Other leg drives in with constant pressure
-Control head (lift if needed) and finish for the fall.
Claw Lift Return to Turk
-From Top Referee position and deep Claw, angle to the side as he stands up.
-Free hand secures his leg (elbow deep up as high as possible to control his hips)
-Lift by extending your legs and back as you drive your hips in
-Pull Claw hand down and Lift his leg to corkscrew him down and control him all the way to put him on his back.
Returning Opponent to the Mat
-Pursue his hips (no space)
-If lock breaks, hold his hips with each hand
-Relock, run to the side, hips in tight
-Pop him up
-Move your feet forward
-Turn him in the air
-Drop his hips straight into mat, plant them there (his hips, not shoulder or head)
-Do Not let him "Float Down"
Variation if you can't lift him...
-Shift hands/lock to opposite side
-Drop front forearm over his anterior thigh
-Front leg does the same
*If you feel he might Granby...
-Crash the far hip or release and pursue and recapture
Situation Drills (live) - from technique and positions covered in this session.
*If you were at the camp, these notes will make sense. If you were not at the camp, video at the top will make it more clear. Enjoy!
