I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times- Bruce Lee
In the age of technology, wrestlers have so many advantages. It is easier to follow college and world wrestling, learn technique, and watch wrestlers from around the globe.
It is important though that we make proper use of this information. More isn’t always better. We tell our wrestlers all the time, we would rather them have 1 or 2 really good shots and turns then to have 5 or 6 decent shots/turns.
A jack of all trades is often a master in none. When you look at the best wrestlers in America they tend to follow this rule. They are masters of a couple shots/turns. They have good clarity which breeds confidence which leads to more success.
Good examples of this would be Kyle Snyder, Cael Sanderson, Jordan Burroughs, James Green, David Taylor, John Smith, etc. We may be able to predict the takedowns these wrestlers use, but good luck stopping them.
Make sure you and your wrestlers don’t get caught up trying to learn and develop every move you see on YouTube or Flowrestling. Master 1 or 2 moves from each position and you will be in great shape.
Remember depth over breadth any day in wrestling!
