Spiral Ride and Breakdown

Posted on Mar 8, 2010 in Practices, Technique

I think we’ll cover the spiral ride and breakdown at practice this evening.  If our wrestlers can get a feel for this riding position, they will address a lot of their common mistakes like hanging arms over their opponent’s should or side, coming out in front when they are on top, and riding too high.

The spiral riding position also offers several variations that lead to solid breakdowns and pinning combinations. Here are several interesting videos about pinning combinations from the spiral ride and breakdown. http://video.kudda.com/clinic/Spiral_Ride_Breakdown
