with Bruce Baumgartner, former Olympic, World and NCAA Champion; member of the USA Wrestling Hall of Fame ('02); 1995 Sullivan Award winner.
Bruce Baumgartner sheds some light on how to solve what he considers the biggest obstacle for heavyweight wrestlers - getting off the mat. In this session from the Dan Gable Asics Wrestling Clinic, Baumgartner demonstrates five ways for your heavyweights to escape. Techniques covered include the stand-up, the leap frog (excellent for less explosive wrestlers), quarter turn stand-up (great against spiral rides), the tripod and the cross wrist roll. Other techniques that Baumgartner discusses include how to stay in the proper power position, getting off your belly and keeping an opponent down.
