The wrestler with dominant hand fighting skills adds another dimension to their offense. A good hand fighter can move his opponent where he doesn't want to go - taking him out of his comfort zone and allowing for more scoring opportunities. Tom Brands, whose hand fighting skills lead him to Olympic and World titles, shows the Push-Pull-Side-to-Side concept of hand fighting. With proper hand fighting techniques, your wrestlers can control the entire match. Brands shows you how to run three to four different techniques to keep your wrestlers on the offensive. The key principles he drives home revolve around head position, foot position and movement to establish pressure and keep the opponent coming to you. Take your offense to a new level with this excellent hand fighting instruction!
