Many matches at the NCAA Wrestling Championships were determined by riding time. It seems like a common riding strategy was to drop to ankles or use methods to kill time when the bottom wrestler stands up, rather than return them to the mat. I know when it comes to winning matches at the NCAA tournament it can take every trick in the book to pull off a tough win. But I was amazed at the amount of wrestlers that had opponents use the tactics mentioned and didn’t adjust. Please watch the video and I would love to hear feedback on this.
Dan Gable on Sitout
It seems to me if you have an opponent that is known to drop to the ankles or cling on when you get to your feet, a Sitout would be a good option. You should also have this hold/series in your back pocket for short goes. Please let me know what you think about this situation. Leave a comment below.
