The Most Productive Wrestling Training Device Improved for 2016

The most productive wrestling training device is back with new improvements in 2016 and better than ever. The Takedown Defender now comes in three sizes to suit wrestlers of different weight classes for more realistic training sessions. Our standard model is sized ideally for wrestlers between 75 and 175 lbs. The large model is best for wrestlers between 175 and 240 lbs. There's also an all new Junior size for younger wrestlers up to 75 lbs.

The Takedown Defender is a multi-purpose training partner

The Defender is great for helping wrestlers learn how to defend against leg shots and then counter attack. Over 50 different exercises can be practiced on the Takedown Defender to help wrestlers perfect their defense and counter attacking skills. Skills that can be developed using the Takedown Defender include:
  • Front Head Lock
  • Head Snap and Spin
  • Shoulder block and back hand go behind
  • Arm drag and spin
  • Front head lock and shuck

Develop a quicker and more effective Sprawl

The sprawl is the most important defensive takedown skill a wrestler will ever learn. Yet, in most practice rooms, the sprawl is given less practice time than most other takedown skills. It is as simple as this. If you have a great sprawl, you will be able to stop more leg shots and you will also have better offence.

The Defender is the best training device available for developing a great sprawl.

Improve Reaction Time

Reaction time is absolutely critical when sprawling or defending against leg attacks. Quick reaction time is the key to stopping leg attacks. A small improvement in this area will make an incredible difference. The Defender will help wrestlers develop better muscle memory, anticipation and the quickest sprawl reaction time they have ever had.

Find your most effective Takedown Stance position learn proper weight distribution

Each wrestler has a different takedown "SET POINT". The "SET POINT" is the stance position that will allow a wrestler to assume the most efficient position to attack as well as defend. The degree that the knees are flexed, weight distribution, the vertical angle and the spacing between the feet will determine how well a wrestler is able to attack, defend and react.

70-80 percent of younger wrestlers rest to much weight on the heels. This makes it tougher to sprawl, penetrate or react. Many matches are lost for this reason alone. The Defender provides a great opportunity for a coach to teach his wrestlers how to rest more weight on the balls of the feet and permanently correct takedown stance flaws. The best part is that a coach can actually coach a wrestler into his best stance position while working on the Defender.
