In his presentation, Brands identifies six areas to work on in your wrestling practice that will help you develop intelligent, physical wrestlers. Not only will these wrestling drills teach aggressiveness, they will also fine tune your wrestling technique, opening up an opponent, allowing you to score. He discusses and demonstrates snaps and spins, set-ups, how to combine moves, the score-after-a-score drill, scrambles, and strength training. “In-your-face,” attacking wrestling starts with an attitude and this video will give you ideas on how to instill that attitude in your practice room.
