    Wrestling DVD's

    Does anyone know of some good DVD's that teach wrestling (takedowns and takedown defense in particular)? I know videos suck but since there isn't any places around here that teach wrestling to adults, I figure I can at least learn some moves from a video and then maybe some of the guys at my BJJ school will want to practice them with me.

    Not exactly what you were looking for but...

    Judo throws combined with BJJ in a book and available in DVD. Not sure how good the DVD is but the book is high quality in regards to photography and layout.

    Book:
    http://www.amazon.com/Guerrilla-Jiu-.../dp/0977731588

    DVD:
    http://www.amazon.com/Position-Impos...028391-3927039

    ===============================

    Not sure about wrestling DVD's.

    RE: that what you said there.

    You must live near a high school. High schools have wrestlers. These wrestlers go to camps and clinics. Those teachers and trainers have to be somewhere during the off-season. tracking down just such a clinic lead me discover that one college near me has a wrestling team that also sponsors a public club.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    I haven't seen it yet but I'm hearing good things about the single leg takedown DVD by this Division I wrestler turned BJJ brown belt:

    http://www.myspace.com/primo76

    You can see a preview on his myspace.

    hmmm that's interesting. So far I've searched on google, called all the gyms/health clubs in my area, and emailed a guy that runs a camp for high school and elementary school kids in the area and asked him if he new of any wrestling programs for adults (he didn't). If you have any other suggestions I'd love to hear them.

    You could ask the HS wrestling coach if he does private instuction (or would be willing to).

    That's worth a shot, although he would probably want a good bit of money for private instruction.

    I would offer him the going rate for private MA instruction in the area. You only need a half-hour or an hour a week anyway, then practice the technique in your BJJ classes.

    I found Jake Shannon and his website to be very helpful
