Mat Mastery Monday: How to shut down your opponents throws IMMEDIATELY

Ever had this happen to you?

Late in the match, you’re up by a few points.  Your adversary charges into you, (sometimes) gets you called for stalling…he locks you up in the 50/50 (aka over/under), launches you to your back and STEALS your match from you!

You did all the work, you built the lead, then he swiped it out from under you with one desperation move.

A move that could’ve been shut down immediately.

Whether you are a thrower now, in the future, or never, having the ability to shut down your opponents throws is key to winning closes matches like this one.

Its why, every spring, we train athletes to shut down the 50/50 right away, developing a system of attacks that fit like a glove with the shut-down techniques, so athletes can win using a 3 step process:

  1. excellent position including the precise details that get most wrestlers beat
  2. an array of shutdown techniques to keep you out of danger and off your back
  3. a 1-2-3 system of attacks based on your opponent’s naturally built-in human reactions

The first priority is excellent position and precise shut-down tactics – skills you can gain the very first night of ACE at our special Game of Throwns session.

You can also learn our slick 1-2-3 scoring system that will be taught at Game of Throwns advanced (learn more about that invitation-only session here

We start in a few short weeks, so join us now while there’s still space

PS:  This week’s bonus is a video – it will go out Friday morning to all who are signed up for ACE by Thursday at midnight.  This video will show you a subtle yet effective method for shutting down your opponents from the over/under position – a method covered on the first night at ACE, but you can see it now and use it in upcoming fall tournaments.   Its something that is rarely taught anywhere but can save you a ton of frustration and agony (in addition to greatly reducing your ‘air time’.)
