University of Virginia Head Coach Steve Garland; 2010 ACC Champions; 2010 ACC Coach of the Year; All-American Wrestler at Virginia; 2000 ACC Wrestler of the Year; part of the 50th Anniversary ACC Wrestling Team The cradle position may be reached from any direction—not only the top. Steve Garland demonstrates a complete cradle sequence from all positions in this extremely educational presentation. He teaches cradle methods from both the defensive and neutral positions. He then moves on to teach cradles from an attacking position on your feet, as well as cradles from the typical top position. Finally, Coach Garland demonstrates cradle and pinning drills in general. When Your Opponent Shoots at You, How Do You Cradle Them? The single leg is the most popular assault in both folkstyle and freestyle wrestling. The most crucial skill to learn is baseline defense, but being able to go straight for points will give you a huge advantage over the opposition. Coach Garland illustrates how to convert your opponent’s offensive into your offense, allowing your wrestler to score in large numbers. Cradle finishes are discussed from the single leg defense with the head inside, the head outside single defense, and off of your opponent’s low single leg attempt. All of his assaults stem from a conceptual shift toward getting the legs back to attacking the man. This modification enables you to score nearly at will from your feet. From the Offensive Neutral Position, Cradle Coach Garland teaches how to use the cradle to strike from the feet in the second section. Options include a front headlock and a re-shot. The front headlock is a game changer in and of itself, but when combined with Coach Garland’s cradle sequence, you may become unstoppable on your feet. He demonstrates how to set up the cradle using the body’s natural movement patterns. You can nearly always score after you’ve mastered the positioning.
