This book emphasizes development of the seven basic skills identified by USA Wrestling: position, motion, level change, penetration, backstep, lifting, and back arch. Every drill is fully illustrated to make teaching fast and easy. Each drill also features a description that includes appropriate skill level, purpose, basic skills used, prerequisites for performance, procedures involved, coaching points, and safety concerns where necessary. Unique features of the book include an index that itemizes drills by area of emphasis and games - such as Mat Chess and Sumo Wrestling - that make practice fun and help keep wrestlers motivated. Plus all of the drills are designed to prepare wrestlers for actual match situations they're sure to encounter.
