Riding your opponent in wrestling is hard work. In this DVD, Coach Strobel shows your wrestlers the fundamentals--and some tricks--that will help keep your opponent on the mat.

From there he shows proper spiral rides and tight waist rides and also shows how to get some quick points with tilts from these rides. Strobel closes with his favorite move - the Far-Leg Turk. You can be a good wrestler without strong riding and pinning skills, but to be a Champion, riding is a must.
