Create better and more efficient practices through proper drilling.

In this video you will discover how to get your wrestlers to drill to perfection. Coach Strobel uses a step-by-step approach to drilling, paying attention to every detail. He explains the importance of detailed drilling to help your wrestlers to learn the correct positions and techniques they need to succeed. He gives you an assortment of drills that you can easily implement into your practice sessions.

Coach Strobel discusses the various types of drilling and how each kind can benefit the wrestler with various examples of each. You will learn several drills within each drill type and when to implement them within your practices, which allows you to adjust your drilling to match the intensity or volume of your practice. These different types of drilling include:

  • Open Drilling - Unstructured wrestler's choice that is perfect for observation by the coach.
  • Structured Drilling - Controlled drilling to work on specific focus.
  • Situation Drills - Drills or live wrestling situations designed to work wrestlers from different positions.
  • Match Situation Drilling - Live wrestling out of different time and score scenarios.
  • Specific Drills to Fix or Teach - The best drills to fix problems.
Many of the drills that coach Strobel shows help build muscle memory so that technique becomes instinct and you can wrestle drill matches that simulate match conditions. These drills will teach your wrestlers how to hand fight, counter, escape, ride, fight off their back, scramble, create space, keep from wrist control and much, much more. These simple-to-teach drills will help your wrestlers master moves they once struggled with, giving them more confidence to succeed during competition. In no time, they will be on their way to becoming better, more refined wrestlers.

This DVD will minimize learning curves, give you and your wrestlers more confidence before entering a match and provide an edge over your opponents.
