      Wrestling

      Lately, me and my friends have gotten into wrestling. We always used to do it, probably since the beginning of junior high, but now we have tournaments and shit. Does anyone have any tips for me? My situation is that I'm taller then a majority of my friends, but I'm light in the ass. There center of gravity is lower so it's easier for them to get me on the ground. Any tips for specific locks/drops I can use?

      Wrestling is fun. I guess you're more into submission wrestling though so you'd need to have pretty good knowledge of some subs. Armbars and chokes are fairly simple, even some leg locks are pretty basic.

      here are some fairly easy chokes you can surprise your buddies with...Make sure to let go when they yelp tho! Chokes are relatively harmless compared to the damage you can do with armbars and leg locks so I don't feel bad posting this for you

      You can always lower your centre of gravity by bending the knees and spreading them out to match theirs. Being taller probably gives you a bit of a strength advantage too.

      We generally use tag outs or tap outs, sometimes pins though. So submission is good for this, thanks for telling me about it.
      I know the Arm Triangle choke and a few other submission/joint locks-the other few are gold, thanks. I'll try not to haha.

      Unless you are doing greco-roman, I suggest you try o-soto gari and tai-otoshi.
      They work well if you are tall. You could also try other hip/sweeping throws.

      You can find videos on youtube, but you'll have to modify them to fighting without the gi , i.e. instead of grabbing the gi you will have to use an underhook/overhook combination.
      These throws are not technically demanding and will get you in side control 95% of the time. Plus they can shock your opponents much more then a typical single/double leg TD.

      Focus on breaking their balance before you execute the throw, by pushing/pulling them in the opposite direction of the throw first.



      As for submission holds, leg triangles, gogoplatas and omoplatas work best if you are tall. I would suggest staying with triangles because it's a high percentage choke that doesn't require a lot of flexibility.

      Drop your legs back when they go in for the take down, push your chest into them. If you're still having problems, I would try and learn what's called a sacrifice throw. It's dangerous for wrestling, because if you miss it, you're in a very dangerous position, but if you can get it right, they end up on their backs and you're in a north-south mount.

      And suko, triangles are illegal in wrestling, besides. You almost invariably pull triangles from your back. If you're on your back, you're probably close to getting pinned. I grappling you want to be on your back, in wresting, you want to be either on top, or on your belly.

      Wrestling and grappling are very very different and require a completely different skill set. When I was in high school, I overheard the wrestling coach say that for getting out of sticky situations (a fight) wrestling was the best because most fights end up on the ground. I promptly challenged him to a grappling match. I was 135 runner with a 3rd degree blackbelt, he was a 210 pound former all American in wrestling. I submitted him in less than a minute. We then wrestled, he pinned me in less than a minute. They look similar, but fairly mutually exclusive.

      Yes, sprawling is a basic technique. Drill it to perfection before coming anywhere near competitions.

      Sacrifice throws are not good for tall people because opponent's hips will always be too far to pull them off properly.
      Lateral drop might work for him, though

      He didn't specify which wrestling style he's doing.

      Not true at all. The complete throwing arsenal of submission wrestling can be found in greco-roman and freestyle. In fact, a lot of SW/grappling fights are won by executing throws that lead to dominant positions. This is something wrestlers do best.
      I've seen many wrestlers dominate in grappling tournaments with only a basic training in submission wrestling.
