Setups & Takedowns is a series of three 3-hour sessions designed to increase the precision and accuracy of the most common offensive takedowns at the highest levels of wrestling: singles and high-crotches. Other attacks will be included: knee pull singles, knee blocks, low singles, and head-outside low-singles, to name a few. Each of the attacks will be broken down into components in order to focus on improving every phase of the attack to insure each wrestler, regardless of skill level and experience, will come away from the clinic with an improved shot. After mastering the attacks, each wrestler will be provided instruction on variety of effective setups along with hand-fighting combinations so that they are able to disrupt any opponent’s stance and create an angle. Finally, the clinic will also include finishes in the format of a series so that each wrestler has an immediate choice based on the opponent’s reaction to the attack. In particular, each wrestler will learn and improve in each of the 6 single leg power positions to keep from ever getting extended on a shot again.

Keel Camps are run with the you’re-on-your-own format, so make sure you bring everything you’ll need to include water, food if there are breaks, and any gear you might need. Trainers are normally not available during the clinics. Parents are welcome to OBSERVE but should refrain from participating, coaching, or interacting with their wrestler during the clinic without prior permission. Keel Camps are not resident camps.
