#6 Rustam Khabilov's Whizzer Roll
This is one really incredible move...perhaps the most athletic and technical move on the list. But it's hard to hit! I tried it on Willie Saylor in the living room, and it didn't work as well as when Rustam hit it on Martin. Either way, this move gets BIG TIME style points, and I sure hope some super talented wrestler hits this one in live competition this upcoming season!
#5 Eric Juergens' Suck Back to Half and Fall
Everything Juergens shows is solid and of great utility to wrestlers. I watched a lot of Juergens videos this week (after checking his technique) and am now a HUGE fan of the former Hawkeye. Love all of his technique but was particularly impressed by this suck back variation he shows.
#4 Matt Valenti's Counters to 2 on 1 Defense (Techniques 1, 2)
After Valenti shows his 2 on 1 series, which is one of the best in our entire library BTW, he shows how to defend being attacked when in the 2 on 1. And then he shows how to counter his opponent when his opponent is defending the 2 on 1. Moves on moves on moves on moves!
#3 Izzy Martinez on Battling Back to Where You're Comfortable
Pretty enlightening piece where Izzy Martinez breaks down a common trend in American wrestling: trying to force a score from an uncomfortable position. He points out that a wrestler shouldn't just understand how to score from an awkward position. He should be able to fight out of the position safely. He should have ALL ANGLES COVERED! I can't really do Izzy justice. Check his stuff.
#2 Jon Jones Superman Tilt
It's not really called the "Superman Tilt." I just coined it that because Bones Jones must be Superman to have come up with this one. I've never seen this one before. I had seen a video, in the past, of some wrestler from (I think) the University of Oregon hitting a similar tilt, but even in that video, the Oregon wrestler didn't hook his opponent's head with his leg the way Jon Jones does. One of the most creative top moves I've seen in a while.
#1 Rob Eiter's Unorthodox Single Leg Defense
You saw some of his stuff on Technique Wave Tuesday. Well that was only the tip of iceberg. Go in to a wrestling room, and you'll see a ton of kids wrestling from the crackback. This may be one of the most important crackback defense series you will ever learn. Bravo, Rob Eiter!
