Clinch Wrestling Instructionals

Hi everyone,

just looking for some wrestling instructionals that cover the clinch.
I have some stuff that is geared towards mma
(Couture, Singer bros and Paul Sharp) which is really good, but am now wanting to look at some pure wrestling tapes.

I'm interested in anyones comments on the following tapes :

Wearing Down Your Opponent by Kerry McCoy
Slide-Bys and Overhooks by Kerry McCoy
Russian Ties by Dennis Hall
Underhooks by Ken Chertow

I'm not so interested in takedowns from the clinch. More interested in control and position.
Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks very much

just me again,

How applicable are russian ties to mma?


I disagree with dogface. While I admit that no one has yet used, or even attempted to use, the two-on-one in MMA, it can certainly be of great use. The only strike that one would be vulnerable to if one were to grab a two-on-one on somebody would be so very ineffective, close-range hooks, as strong as the weak body shots that one generally sees in the clinch in boxing. If used with the intent to take someone down, it can be used quite effectively, especially if used against someone who is stupid enough to throw those weak punches.

The USA Wrestling Coaches syllabus for Greco-roman would be pretty good for displaying fundamentals of upper-body wrestling/positioning from standing.
