CHAIN Wrestling!

Posted on Nov 19, 2010 in Competitions, Practices, Technique, Wrestlers

Wrestlers that want to compete at the highest levels need to keep two words in mind – chain wrestling. After a young wrestler masters fundamental techniques and holds, the next step is to chain them together so they can flow from one to the next to the next based on their opponent’s reaction. The best wrestlers have drilled these chains so many times that they don’t have to think on the mat. They just react.

Watch Penn State’s Andrew Alton chain a shot attempt to a headlock with devastating effectiveness.
