This is the key to the success of the wrestlers at the Red Hawk Wrestling Club. We rotate our classes through these ever-expanding lesson plans day by day to give wrestlers a very well-rounded wrestling education. Through repetitive drill, we develop a wrestler's ability to instinctively react instantly to any situation.
Click on the red button to the left of each lesson for a YouTube playlist, listing videos of Red Hawk's owner & head coach Seth Ciasulli teaching each move. If you click on a series, you'll see a list of the moves that we teach in the lesson, each with a YouTube video link with the same idea if available.
We have 29 lessons, teaching 257 moves. Of those moves, 157 of them are from the neutral position (100 offensive, 57 defensive), 99 are from referees position (72 top, 27 bottom). Despite our reputation of being good in referees position, we spend roughly twice as much time covering the neutral position and all of its intricacies.
The more consistent you are with our practices, the more you'll learn and get acclimated to the moveset and the easier this sport will become. It's not about having one good move that you do all of the time. It's about having hundreds that can be used whenever available. The only way to keep them all in mind, is by drilling.
It's also not about applying every specific move exactly where it's needed. It's about increasing your wrestler's overall wrestling IQ. The more they understand about the sport, the more they can use different techniques from each move in other areas of their wrestling. You never know when one move will apply to a completely different situation. When it's time to improvise and adapt on the fly, they'll be more likely to come out on top if they understand more about the sport than their opponent. Wrestling is like a language in that way.
It's no surprise that the best to come out of Red Hawk were also the most consistent and loyal. It's also no surprise to us that when you leave and stop drilling, you start to forget what you gained. The proof is in the results. We don't just train your wrestler, we educate as well, with consistent technique that they can build on and will be relevant for their entire wrestling career.
