Are you kidding me?  Some high school coach is going to beat Belichick?  No Way!

That's what a lot of people thought...
  • expert people. 
  • Betting people. 
  • Oddsmaking people.

You can hardly fault them their skepticism.

After all, Belichick is one of the greatest coaches in NFL history, owning 5 Super Bowl rings.

His rival on the other sidelines,  Doug Pederson, was coaching high school football 10 years ago.

How'd he do it?

By developing a simple, highly effective offensive system.

From one formation, they can attack the defense 6 different ways (similar to our dynamic inside series that is an essential part of our system.  We attack 5 different ways, reading our opponent's reaction and imposing our will accordingly.)

Based on the reaction of your opponent, you run the play that works. 

The system is simple yet ingenious.  Simple enough that a backup quarterback can learn to execute it in a few short weeks and lead his team to Super Bowl glory.

Pederson followed this process to train his athletes

I know that because they were prepared, and this is the only way you can be that prepared.

Recently I joined my family for a wonderful evening of terrible food and attended a

performance at a way-outdated packed claustrophe’s-nightmare of a theatre
with too many steps and not enough bathrooms.... and also encountered incredibly stupid drivers that nearly ran me over.

Good time to be had by all.

The performance reminded me of the struggles many wrestlers face.

Because just like this show's diabolically frustrated star, haunting his theatre and dropping chandeliers,

Many wrestlers are equally frustrated by this:
  • Struggling to finish shots and losing key matches by 1…
  • Failing to escape the clutches of the tough leg rider
  • Struggling to score those crucial back points that can seal your win in critical go-to matches…
  • And failing to lasso your opponent and put him away when you have the chance

Your answer to solving every one of these struggles, is straight in front of you.

We will train to win from each of them in the next two workouts…

including next Tuesday’s (Jan 16) special Pinner’s paradise session, where you can learn to vent your diabolical frustrations and finish off your opponent with your own magic lasso.

<![CDATA[Break these 3 resolutions and win more matches]]>Tue, 02 Jan 2018 20:17:24 GMThttp://randyswrestlingsite.com/my-blog-page/break-these-3-resolutions-and-win-more-matches

Because my annual new years resolution, the one that I break first every year,  is this:

I have first hand knowledge about breaking them.

So now, without delay (since its already a day late)…the top 3 resolutions (aka goals) you should break, which can lead to more wins:
    •    Be more aggressive (take more shots)
    •    Win more matches
    •    Work harder

All three sound, on the surface, like fine endeavors - but here’s why you will benefit more by dismantling each of them:

Be more aggressive (take more shots)

Many athletes are told, “you need to take more shots”.  Maybe you do and maybe you don’t.

Truth is, in order to shoot more effectively you have to:

    •    Have a set-up that forces your opponent to willingly moving right into your shot
   •    Penetrate with precision (including every step:  hitting your knee with angle, Grabbing the leg,  and locking your hands.    All of them - exact and precise.
   •    Finish in precisely the manner that will score against the most common counters used by the better wrestlers (ie, if you limp arm to finish your single, you need to upgrade your finish to beat the better kids)

To shoot more effectively, do the above things.  If you can do that, you should shoot more often.

Win more matches.

Here’s the easiest way to win more matches:  Schedule really easy opponents.
If you are wrestling at a JayVee tournament, while others are toiling at Top Gun - your odds are better that you will win more matches.  But I'd rather be winning at Top Gun.

A lot of people make the mistake of judging their success strictly by wins and losses.  Your record will usually be better when the schedule is easier, but it is not indicative of becoming a better wrestler.

Work Harder.
While its certainly beneficial to work harder...having it as a goal - a resolution - can be a mistake.

Here's why:
By what standard do you measure working harder?
    •    Drill faster in practice?  sure.
    •    Lift a few more lbs in the weight room?  That’ll help.
    •    Run in the morning.  Absolutely.
All good things.


if your goals aren't measurable... then ‘work harder' is merely a rally call.  You might as well have a pom pom in your hands.
At some point, it just makes you feel worse instead of better...and have less confidence instead of more.

If you want to make real progress, and are using the new year as a springboard, replace the above, with these:
Set quantifiable goals you can track, chart, and record, such as:

    •    Implement your weight management system.  Included:  you own weight chart complete with goal weights, goal-weight-gains (1.5 lbs gained throughout the day, that means YES to breakfast and lunch)
    •    Increased cardio regimen, Charted.    Example:  twice per week, 3 mile timed run, with time goals for each run
    •    Pinpoint three areas you need to improve in, that will lead to more wins.  Write them down.  Have a plan for fixing each area.
    •    Have Directed, track-able practice goals (here's how to use practice to get better.) 
Exampletoday I will let my teammates in on my legs, and I will work on counters. 
Example 2:  I will hit all single legs today - same shot same finish, varying setups.

<![CDATA[Training for Success:  a three step guide]]>Tue, 28 Nov 2017 19:09:38 GMThttp://randyswrestlingsite.com/my-blog-page/training-for-success-a-three-step-guidePicture
You can learn the best shot in the world…

the slickest trick…the fanciest “designer-move” that all the collegians are raving about…

And it won’t make a bit of difference.

Here’s why:

Your success will have a lot more to do with your ability/willingness to train for success than any one move.  

Here’s your three step guide:
  • Position
  • Precision
  • Pace

I preach this - no - I insist on this - every single practice.

Every time you hear READY:  Get in your stance.  Throughout drilling, throughout penetration steps, throughout just about everything - STAY in your stance.

Be on the details…EVERY Rep.  If you cut it short, you are cheating yourself.  
Step precisely.
Grab the leg precisely.
Turn the corner precisely.
Finish precisely.

Drill as quickly as possible, while still doing it right. 
Partner:  he should never have to wait for you!

Training for success is how athletes make giant leaps in the room, and fast.

Note:  As of this writing, We are holding tryouts for our in-season training program, and offering a $15 discount for a limited time.  If you want to give it a try,

<![CDATA[The BIG THREE critical mistakes and how you can exploit them for your own gain]]>Thu, 16 Nov 2017 18:36:13 GMThttp://randyswrestlingsite.com/my-blog-page/the-big-three-critical-mistakes-and-how-you-can-exploit-them-for-your-own-gainPicture
This Sunday, we are focusing on the three critical mistakes that the entire wrestling world makes, that you (the dedicated athlete) can exploit, to win more matches.

These mistakes are so prevalent, and a part of our wrestling culture, that very few wrestling folks even pick up on it.

In fact, I was on Youtube the other day watching a world champ give a demonstration.

Even he got it wrong.

That is problematic because a lot of wrestling folk hit up youtube to get wrestling knowledge - and assume when they see a world champion, that his technique will work for them.

Now that the season has begun, athletes (the more dedicated ones) may be looking for additional training.

We have a try-out this Sunday (November 19).  At this tryout, I'll be demonstrating the big three critical mistakes firsthand - and how to exploit it for more wins.

You can try it out for as little as $5 (if you follow instructions) and see if this training is a fit for you.

<![CDATA[How to be more greedy]]>Wed, 08 Nov 2017 20:30:00 GMThttp://randyswrestlingsite.com/my-blog-page/how-to-be-more-greedyPicture
Not often in life should one be told to be greedy, but that’s what I’m going to suggest for you right now.

Actually, I’m not going to just suggest it…

I’m going to insist on it.

This is about wrestling wins, after all - and I want to help you be as greedy as possible.

Here’s how to snag yourself more wins, starting with your very first practice this Friday

Learn what makes wrestlers tick, what their mindset is, and how you can take full advantage of that knowledge.

Better yet, learn from me - I’ve studied human nature in the sport of wrestling for close to 30 years now and can usually tell you precisely what you are thinking, and what your opponent is thinking, on the mat.

Those in my room right now are getting a small dose of it…

and once we start our in-season
small group training, its full-steam ahead.

Every week, you can be gaining more and more insight into
  • the thoughts of your opponents,
  • the trends in wrestling, and most importantly,
  • how to slyly penetrate right through their defenses and take full advantage of their thoughts and schemes to gain yourself more wins.

Even more...

That’s what Bonus Tuesday is for (this season, Small Group has expanded to give you up to 10 opportunities to train every month - most weeks, 3 sessions per week that you can take advantage of).  

Every Tuesday you can gain full access to my decades of experience reading the trends of wrestling, and learn another trap move, specially designed to crush your opponent’s natural tendencies, leading to more wins for you.

Some of these tendencies include:
  • the wrestling world’s (deeply flawed) method for countering front headlocks.
  • how wrestlers give you an opening every time they attempt to score from the go behind
  • how we crush the (sometimes right but often wrong) trend of “explode off the whistle”…meaning more points for us from top position
  • why seeing it once isn’t enough (if you aren’t reinforcing your top moves, they won’t be there when you need them the most
  • how to shut down the fancy ‘scrambles’ most wrestlers (and some coaches) oooo and aaaah over
  • and more that I’ll discuss later.

That’s just on Tuesdays.  I haven’t even gotten to Wednesday’s bonus yet but I’ll discuss it another time.

Right now, you can hold your spot in
small group training (because of the major small group revamp, its more important than ever to grab your spot early and guarantee you get in the most beneficial group for your needs -   Plus the earlier you commit to small group, the more special bonuses you get - including the special invitation that is on its way this Friday).

get greedy now

<![CDATA[THIS simple truth could be holding you back]]>Mon, 06 Nov 2017 10:27:34 GMThttp://randyswrestlingsite.com/my-blog-page/this-simple-truth-could-be-holding-you-backPicture
Are you being told or trained?

Ever hear this? 

"I told you not to do that!"
"How many times do I have to tell you... "
  • don't dive on your shots...
  • don't let them get the leg...
  • don't let him get legs in on you
  • [add your own here]

All of these phrases, on the surface, may sound like good advice however...

None of them help you become a better wrestler and win more matches.

If you have only been told, and not trained...
when the whistle has blown and your opponent is upon you...

you may be left with no other option than to dig around in the depths of your brain and try to think of what to do next.

Sometimes that works out and sometimes it doesn't.

But I'm guessing you are looking for something more reliable than "sometimes".

If, instead, you are looking for automatic...

Reacting automatically to your opponent, for instance,  instead of having to guess what to do...

then this program may be the answer for you.
<![CDATA[I won't back down.]]>Tue, 03 Oct 2017 17:50:22 GMThttp://randyswrestlingsite.com/my-blog-page/i-wont-back-downPicture
Well I know what's right, I got just one life
in a world that keeps on pushin' me around
but I'll stand my ground,
and I won't back down

-Tom Petty

Big fan of Tom Petty.  RIP to his family, fans and friends.

One of my favorite songs is his classic, I won't back down.

It shouts from the rooftops to anyone who's ever struggled and been told NO, you can't do that.  You CAN'T accomplish that.

Here are a few lines from the song:

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
in a world that keeps on pushin' me around
but I'll stand my ground, and I won't back down.
And just like the song - I won't back down, either.

I stand, defiantly, against all who said (still say) I can't do it - and I do it anyway!

I have spent 30 years defiantly NOT backing down, crafting Attack System Wrestling into a powerful, dominating system of wrestling - when many told me I'd never make it...

training generations of athletes to beat the common traits of the wrestling world in unique ways.

And I
defiantly thumb my nose at those who doubt me.

Here's a truth for you:  You're going to be told "You Can't" a lot, too.

I want you to be as defiant as I have been and refuse to back down!

Refuse to accept second best...

And Refuse to let anyone tell you you can't do something, that you're not good enough, not athletic enough, not talented enough!

Its garbage and I want you to ignore it!

This Friday's (basically) free event is coming up - this is your opportunity to fight back and learn my methods for beating the common handfighting methods of the wrestling world.

And you can do so because, my ever-so defiant daughter told me last year, when I was having last minute second thoughts and almost backed down...

"We're doing this." (partly because her grandmother had said she couldn't do it - she defiantly set out to prove her wrong).

And we did.

25 miles later (and another 7 to get home due to the adrenaline rush), we had completed our first
Pelotonia event.

We rode it and never looked back - and I'm glad we did.  We rode it for lots of folks who have suffered, and died from cancer.

Like my dad, who was a Korean War veteran, a farmer, a pillar of the community, an artist - and overall one of the nicest people you could ever meet (apparently I got MY personality from my mom's side).

He's been gone just over a year - and I think about him every single day.

The Ride was an opportunity to raise money for a great cause - and do so together with my daughter.

The fundraising deadline is Friday - and I am giving it one last push by offering you this outstanding training:  Handfighting Extravaganza II.

No entry fee required.

All I ask is to partner with me to help others who have been less fortunate.

Ever bomb a test?

Remember that sinking feeling when you set down your #2 pencil and knew you blew it?

When I was a kid, moments like that left a pit in my stomach for the rest of the day.

Imagine what it would be like if you knew you could take a course that guarantees you won’t experience that?

Well, you can.

Here’s the first option:  take German at Watkins Memorial with Mr. Ferguson.

At last night’s conference, he unveiled his methods.
  • There is no textbook.
  • There is almost never any homework.
  • Bomb a test?  You can retake it as often as you like (as long as you follow his systematic training - uh - learning system designed to make it second nature).

....and students fill out a detailed personal profile - so he can personally craft the class to fit his students.

Each student - a personal connection.

He went on to explain in fine detail, how he builds a foundation from the ground up, training students to first understand individual words and entry level concepts…

then put together entire sentences…

and then develop the capability to carry on lengthy conversations and discussions.

Now here’s a guy who understands
Phase Five, the 5 step path to learning and winning (on the mat and off).

Athletes who don’t follow this five phase process…and coaches who don’t understand it…

are destined to wind up frustrated by their lack of progress.

I see athletes who are constantly stressed out…as well as parents and coaches who are constantly disappointed in them.

That’s why you hear things like:

“I told you to not to do that” or
“how many times do I have to tell you that?”

If you fully understand this
five phase process, you will understand exactly where you rate in specific areas - and understand how to accelerate your path to the next level.

PS  This fall, you (talking to athletes) can accelerate your path to phase five faster by doing this, than anything else.
