2 thoughts on “The Importance of Positioning

  1. Sara,

    I’d say that positioning is THE most important thing for wrestlers to understand and master. The way wrestling is today, athletes are able to better create attacks and counterattacks than ever. What they often don’t understand is putting themselves in position to create….which is been the number one thing I’ve experienced as a coach, at every level.

    We teach a lot of technique, but not positioning that makes it work. You look at the Russians especially, that’s their strength.

    Anyway, thanks for raising a really important point!

    And, do you have an email? I have a female athlete in my program I’d like to talk to you about, but it’s appropriate to do so in a closed forum.
