Getting off the bottom is essential to being successful in wrestling.
Ian Assael, Camp Director at Ken Chertow Wrestling, gives you the technique you need to score from the bottom against tough opponents. Maintaining shoulderknee alignment is essential for getting weight off of the bottom mans hands, which is critical for standing up, as well as executing reversals.
Coach Assael starts off detailing the proper position from the bottom, then goes through the mechanics of a proper standup stepbystep. He focuses on recovery using the kneeslide technique, which is an essential skill for all wrestlers, as they will not always escape off the whistle.
