Gene Mills is the Man

Posted on May 5, 2010 in Technique

I’m a huge Gene Mills fan. I had the pleasure of spending a week at his Vision Quest wrestling camp back in 1995 and we teach his half nelson series to our high school wrestlers. I’ve always appreciated his aggressive style – the way he is always looking for the pin. This technique video is another great example of that.

As a wrestler, an inside stand-up was my favorite move from bottom. I was strong on my feet so my first move was always up and out. I never even considered pinning a guy from there. But, here’s Gene Mills making it look like an obvious transition.  I’m definitely adding this to our bag of tricks.  ENJOY.
