Freestyle wrestling techniques

The two most common international styles of wrestling are greco-roman and freestyle.  Techniques used in both styles are very important in the development of a school aged wrestler, especially as they become physically mature and can perform the more dynamic lifts and throws.  Freestyle wrestling will help an athlete become better from the neutral position (on their feet) and teach them how to defend against being put into danger positions (on their back).  Wrestling for a state high school title or at the collegiate level is becoming more and more rare for wrestler who have not participated in the two most popular international styles.

If you are passionate about wrestling and want to get better with the sport then here are some freestyle wrestling techniques that you can practice in your training sessions. Irrespective of whether you are an expert or beginner, you can always do better with some new moves under your belt. Sharpen your wrestling skills with these great moves mentioned below:

Ankle lock.

This freestyle wrestling techniques is accomplished by tightly grabbing the ankle of the other wrestler. You have to sweep them to the ground by placing the ankle in the elbows crook and grabbing the arm and toes with the help of opposite hand. You have to Force the other wrestler onto his back and then twist the foot. The opponents shoulder will be forced to the ground when you hold their elevated ankle with a tight grasp.

Leglock.

Another freestyle wrestling technique that involves the use of legs is the leg lock. Get the opponent lying on their stomach and sit on their butt area. Grab their lower legs and pull them towards your body. This will cause pain because of the hyper extension of the opponent’s leg. Do not harm your competitor, so only use force that will trap them and get them to surrender.

Head lock.

One of the popular freestyle wrestling techniques is the head lock. Go behind the other wrestler and place your arms around their bicep and head area. Grab your arm with the opposite hand, keeping it in front of your face.

Suplex.

Similar to the professional freestyle wrestling techniques, this freestyle tactic involves grabbing your opponent from around the waist by using both your arms and lifting them to a level. When they are lifted the next step is to fall forward over them.

Leg sweep.

The final freestyle move is the leg sweep. In this you have to hold your opponent from the upper chest area and make use of your single leg to sweep their leg from under. By pushing forward your opponent will go crashing down on the mat and you will definitely score more points.

Double leg takedown.

Quite like single leg take down, double leg takedown is among freestyle wrestling techniques that can be used by both novice and expert wrestlers. This move is anticipated in the standing position with a slight bending of knees. You need to grab on to the opponents legs and drive them forward.

Bear hug.

Show your strength to your opponent with this freestyle move. This is move goes exactly by its name, i.e. you have to hold your opponent tight quite like a bear hug. This move has to be performed till the time your opponent falls on his back. This move is particularly used when the other wrestler squares up a single.

Gator Roll.

Score some points with this classic move, where you force fully put your opponent in the position of a headlock and roll him down the floor. Such freestyle wrestling techniques are only performed when the standing or knee position has inside control. You need to grab the other wrestler’s upper right arm with the help of your own right arm, pull him down, duck under him and then roll him over.

Single- hip toss.

Surprise the other wrestler with this brilliant throw. This technique is performed particularly when the other wrestler sprawls a single leg move. You will need to hold his back with one of your arms and take a step backwards inside. Then pop your hip and throw him on your hips.

freestyle wrestling

Freestyle wrestling is a combat sport which confronts two male competitors who try to gain control over their opponent through the use of throws, locks, leg trips, and clinching techniques. Contrary to Greco-Roman which only allows the use of the upper body, all Freestyle holds can involve the legs in order to ultimately pin the the opponent’s shoulders to the mat. If a wrestler manages to do so, victory by “fall” is proclaimed, otherwise, the match pursues until the end of the regular time and the winner is decided according to the technical points scored.

There are always these two sides you always find and you have to choose one yourself what you want. Every corner, every side of this world is full with these two sides and you can find it in every field.

summer wrestling campWhen there was a starting of this world there was nothing, only except some people who did not know how they would survive on this earth but time gets going and they learned with this passing time many things and developed for themselves too. They learned to plough the land, learned to seed it and they knew that if anything one wants to get then one has to struggle for it. With eating and graining food things they invented many other things for their entertainment and for getting rid of their boredness . At that time there were no cinema and movie things like, so for their entertainment they had competitions, competitions for physical strength. They invented many sports for measuring one’s physical strength and one of them was wrestling.

It was the sport that was liked and loved by everyone at that time and it is still being loved and liked around the world. Wrestling develops according and with time having its many styles, forms and techniques and now it is competed in Olympic Games. There are many sportsmen from around the world come to take part in it and I am one of them who recently participated in this hustle bustle sport wrestling in my country and local competitions. I take part from Suffolk County wrestling club.

It is the most admired wrestling club in New York where many wrestling competitions are held and many participants from nearby Counties take part in it. You can check its schedules and other updates that what is going to happen there.Wrestling is one of my favorite sports from the other strength and muscle sports. When I was a small kid I saw people doing swimming, playing Tennis, Football and other sports and I thought about them how much power and strength they have to spend on playing these sports and doing this they become strong but how much. My fondness was always towards a sport that could give me ultimate power, confidence and a real feeling of winning something winnable and I found my fondness in wrestling. I admire other sports and games too but I admire wrestling most.

In coming time I am going to take part in wrestling County Nassau where many other Counties’ wrestling winners are coming to participate. It is going to be a huge thing where many people are coming to see us. It is all New York wrestling. I suggest all young people for coming to see this club competition.

Best wrestling club of all time

It was time when I was just 16 years old studying in a school when one day a wrestling coach came and told us about this sport because in next few days some students were going to be chosen for ny wrestling competition. That coach told us everything about this sport and how beneficial it is and how one can get benefited with it if learns it. The one thing which I liked most about it was the thing that it is one of the few sports which is played in Olympic Games and that thing attracted me because I knew that in this sport I could make my career.

vhw wrestling club

Next day in school some techniques were going to be taught by the coach for preliminary preparation provided we could get into a wrestling club and could take part in NY wrestling competition. Some students including me were taught some techniques by the coach. I think it was the best time when I learned something essential and needed for life thing in my life. Some wrestling lessons which I learned in school change my total scenario towards the things. I realized that this sport is not just about winning or fighting, it is just about self confidence.

Freestyle wrestlingAfter some time I joined a summer wrestling camp near my town where I learned many thing about this sport and about its techniques and I knew that this sport is practiced around the world then I knew that I was not the only one who was learning it there were many who were learning it. I also knew that it is the one of the oldest and organized sports in history.

The wrestling which I was learning is a type of free style wrestling and has its origin in ‘catch as catch can’ wrestling. The one thing I was taught during my training in wrestling club was an ultimate goal of this sport or you could say a final punch to your opponents. It was just to throw and pin you opponent down to the mat which resulted in a win. I defeated many keeping this goal in my mind and won an Olympic Gold medal. At that time I was 24 only.

After winning a gold medal I was preparing for another competition where I was bestowed with many awards and remarks like strong man, great man, tough man and many others. Listening these words were a great experience for me and it seems good when in a crowd of thousand and million people you are greeted with these words and comments. After winning awards I am now running my own summer wrestling in long island where I am giving training to many young and wannbes wrestlers.

If you want to join you can also come to summer camp in long island where many come and I want to thank that wrestling coach who came to my school at that time and told me about this sport. I love this sport and want to excel it more and want to win it more and also want to teach others provided they can learn about this sport. It is not only for winning competitions but also for self defense provided you could be afraid of nothing.  For me wrestling is the thing which gives me everything and I like it because it makes me powerful and seem like I am flying high in the sky.

You can be super strong learning this .

Time is running with its fast speed and with this time everything is running fast leaving behind things and people who could not run with this fast time. Today everywhere you see development in technology, infrastructure, facilities, and services and in other areas too, with this development the standard of people’s living is also developing but with this, one thing is also developing and increasing and that thing is crime. You see that that time has gone when people came to help others and there were not robberies, loot and other criminal activities as today are, not to a higher extent that in nowadays’ world prevails.

The crime is rapidly increasing and there are multiple facets of it and because of this crime and criminals some innocent people are become prey to it but you know or ever you think that what is the reason behind it that people very easily come into these criminals’ hand? Perhaps the reason is; that you are weak or not that much physically strong to fight them or save yourselves. You have to be strong to save yourselves from these people because for your safety you could not depend on others.

vhw clubSo now the question comes how to build yourselves? There are many forms and fighting methods that can help you to build and develop yourselves. You should keep in mind that you learn these methods only for your safety, not to harm others. One of the best of them is wrestling. It is an old sport from ancient times and also effective to make you strong and fit, for it you can join any wrestling club and get trained there by a qualified coach.

You can also join a summer wrestling camp near your town if it is arranged or can go to other town to join it. There are many camps arranged during summer time and done by a qualified coach and one thing you should also keep in mind that whenever you join you always train under a qualified coach.

There are many styles and forms of wrestling popular and one of them is freestyle wrestling. It is a type of amateur wrestling that is practiced around the world and also contested in Olympic Games. In this type of wrestling one has to throw and pin down an opponent to a mat, which is its main ultimate goal. It is a complete style of stand-up wrestling which brings traditional wrestling and Judo and Sambo techniques too.

You can get training in it by joining summer camp in long island which is soon going to be arranged where coach like Vougar and other will come to teach you.

So join this summer camp and do wrestling in long island and save yourself and others and make yourself fit and strong to fight anything. On the other hand physical activity like this one also develops self confidence and more than that learning it you have the chance to enter into Olympic Games and perhaps may win a gold medal. On the whole wrestling has many benefits.

 

 

 

Wrestling at its best

Strong is good and happy. Who doesn’t want to be a strong? Perhaps everyone wants to be and for it one has to do some physical exercises or choose a good combat sport which makes you strong by practicing it and also teaches you some fighting skill and moves.

If you are thinking that which sport you should choose for both becoming strong and as well as also teaches you about combating then I think wrestling is best one that one can opt for.

Wrestling is one of the best combat sports today that is being practice by many professional and freshers around the world. There is a governing body of this sport that governs it all around the world with specific standards for playing it. There can be amateur and professional wrestling and many other different types of it. From them, one type is free style wrestling.

Freestyle wrestling is a type of amateur wrestling that is contested in the Olympic Games. In this type of wrestling one has to throw and pin opponent to the mat and one who does this, wins. Freestyle wrestling is a type of complete stand up wrestling which is a combination of judo, sambo techniques and wrestling. It is one of the four forms of free style amateur competitive wrestling which is practiced internationally.

If you want to train under a professional then there is two time wrestling world champion and Olympic bronze medalist Vougar Oroudjov who can train you for free style wrestling.

You must be thinking that how you can learn this sport and must be very eager to learn it because you also want to be strong and powerful like wrestlers. Then there are many professional who teach this sport and you can get training under them and there are also summer wrestling camp which are arranged for learning this sport. It can be in colleges and schools and near your town. Training at summer camps can be a good beneficial where you can learn with others same like your age and older than you. It can be really beneficial where you can see learning it and also learn yourself. It is the combat sport of right techniques and of deep knowledge where it can take months and years to master it by practicing regularly. If someone wants to take it as career option then training at summer camp is the best option one can do where the guidance of professionals are always ready to help you in techniques and methods.

All life we do dream. We do motivate ourselves; work hard and sometimes dream become true. When I was young kid I saw Olympic wrestling on TV. After that I got a new dream that I would be on Olympic and win gold there. I signed up wrestling section. Hard working for 10 years I made to 1992 Olympics Barcelona. But I got short and won Bronze. After that I tried another shot and made at Atlanta 1996 and become short again at 4th. A Guy from North Korea Kim ILL won both Olympic.

I still dream sometimes that one day Oroudjov will win Olympic Gold. I have 3 boys. All are wrestlers. Naryman is 3x NY state champ in His junior Cornell University, Vitali is 13 and George is 9 years old who just has started to wrestle. We wrestle everyday at my Wrestling club VHW. I speak with my sons about Olympic experience and about dream. If my kid would not win, I would train my Grandkids. I have the dream and want it become a truth.

But now we get some new Problems. Olympic Comity wants to drop wrestling after 2020. My family’s dream is breaking in parts and I think we are slowly going down. What we did, wrong! Have I chosen Wrong sport? My life is simple, my friends are wrestlers, and my heroes are wrestlers. Men, all I have got, is wrestling. Is it possible that wrestling remains after 2020? It is bothering me and that thing is taking my dream away from me. I Hope all will work out rightly and my family dream will live. I know I am not alone and have so many friends and coaches that have same dream. I am just waiting for some good news.
