Some of the tips that I have sharing here which is essential to become successful wrestler

Always Listen what your Coach said:-

A wise person once told me to listen to people who know more than me.  I have learned this applies to wrestling.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a youth wrestler or an experienced high school wrestler.

If a wrestling coach takes the time help you by offering advice to become a better wrestler, you listen to that coach.  In most cases that coach has probably forgot more about the sport of wrestling than what you know.

Know your strengths:-

Any good wrestler is better at certain aspects of a wrestling match.  For example, a wrestler may be better in the top position than the bottom position.  A wrestler needs to know what a kid is best at and try to put himself in that situation.

Know your Opponents Strengths:-

Likewise, a wrestler should know what his opponent is good at.  Your game plan should be to stop an opponent’s attack by defending his best moves.  For example,  if a wrestler executes the best fireman’s carry you have ever seen, then you avoid tying up with that particular wrestler.

Make Good Decisions on the Mat:-

A good wrestler understands the sport and how to avoid bad decisions.  This means knowing how much time is left in a period, where you are on the mat, whether to attack or defend, etc… This comes with lots of mat time.

A Good Wrestler Learns from Mistakes:-

Wrestling is a sport where most people will lose more than they win. That is why I tell people that wrestling imitates life.  Successful people fail more than they are successful.  The important aspect of wrestling is to never quit. You identify your mistakes and you learn from them.

There is many clubs around who offers good coaching and summer wrestling camp. There is many  wrestling club in NY too One the best wrestling club that I’ve known is VhwClub .

Wrestling and its facts,,,,,,

Wrestling refers to contests where two person physically engage one another in an attempt to gain control, often by utilizing hand-to-hand techniques designed to throw their opponents off balance and knock them down. History of Wrestling is very long.

History of Wrestling

Wrestling is an Old English term that seems to have originated some time previous to 1100 A.D. However, wrestling as a practice is much older than that. Along with this, there is no specific line that can be drawn, as is the case with some other martial arts styles, when it comes to the evolution of wrestling. Nearly every culture boasts a form of hand-to-hand combat designed to throw opponents off balance.

Reinforcing this, cave drawings in France from over 15,000 years ago appear to depict people engaged in acts of wrestling. A grappling style originating in China called Shuai Jiao is reportedly over 4,000 years old. Artwork in Egypt shows people engaged in wrestling before 2,000 BC. Further, both the Greeks and Romans engaged in the martial art to a great extent as well.

In Europe, many of the styles of wrestling were originally rather loosely organized. Eventually these became more organized, however, which led to the style of Greco-Roman wrestling. Greco-Roman wrestling refers to a style of grappling where lower body attacks are disallowed (all throws are executed using upper body clinches and holds). From there, Greco-Roman and modern freestyle grappling competitions became formal in continental Europe and money prizes were offered to the victors.

Along with this, European nobility often practiced the art of wrestling, and by 1896 Greco-Roman wrestling was so popular that it was added to the initial Olympic Games. Freestyle wrestling (1904) and women’s freestyle wrestling (2004) were both also eventually included.

Characteristics of Wrestling

The majority of wrestling styles can be defined by techniques such as clinching, takedowns, takedown defense, holding, and more. Additionally, some wrestling styles, such as catch wrestling, utilize submission holds or techniques meant to force an opponent to give up or face the consequences of a joint lock or choke hold.

Basic Goals of Wrestling

Wrestling stylists generally work to take their opponents to the ground and control them there by utilizing clinches, locks, takedowns, throws, and more. From there, the goals of what wrestlers do tend to depend on the style in question.

Sometimes wrestlers may have the goal of pinning their opponent. Other times, they may hope to end the fight utilizing a submission hold.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A Dream of Wrestling–?

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.

wrestling clubI had 3 matches with him head to head and won 2 xs, his 1x but at the end he became champ, not me. But my Dream stayed with me. 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.
