Coach Lang's Notes from UVU Wrestling Camp 2018 - Session One with Luke Lofthouse...
(These notes will make more sense if you watch the video first, or were actually at the camp)
2 p.m. Monday June 11, 2018
After dynamic stretching/tumbling/warm up...
Focus on feet, hands, movement, ties, handfighting.
*MOVEMENT! Always be moving your position.
-Break your non-productive habits.
-What is your best position where you are most likely to score? Maintain that position as you move.
*Most important aspect of set-up is moving your feet!
-Speed Pummel with feet moving (your underhook side foot steps up each time as you switch).
-Now be more forceful with your hands and arms as you pull the Underhook side across as you pummel.
-Dig Pummel - Squeeze harder - More effort!
Over/Under and push - Lower your hips and push. Move your opponent!
-Next, one partner push, the other give a little ground.
HUSTLE = Effort + Attitude
Good stance position is very similar in any sport.
This time... maintain balance and stance as you push.
-Drive off your back foot and transition with front (small steps).
-Now push until you feel matching pressure then drop step and release.
-Now from Over/Under position, pressure in until you feel matching pressure, then push down on partner's overhook side elbow with both hands as you release. Pull that arm down and guide it away as you circle to get the angle.
-Now partner on knees leaning in (see minute 19:26 of video). Offensive wrestler push in and dig inside control and drive with forearm of collar tie hand. Once pressure is matched, snap down and score. Repeat with inside control on other side. Work both sides. Remember to get the angle as you circle.
-Same drill from feet.
*Key to wrestling = Movement + Pressure
-Now pressure and when partner matches pressure, release your pressure as you Snap with inside tie and hit your leg attacks.
