    10th Planet techniques for wrestling?

    My kids are currently wrestlers who at least for the time being claim they want to be MMA fighters when they grow up. My son just turned 7 and my daughter is about to turn 9 next month. They both started wrestling last December and work very hard but are still dealing with the difficult learning curve of starting a little later then other kids. (Some kids start wrestling at 4, and they met some of them. It seriously made a difference.)

    Both of my kids get stuck on the bottom a lot and it occurred to me that perhaps BJJ sweeps might be a good way to get out of pins. I bought Eddie's book and went over the half guard stuff and was enthralled with the possibilities.

    Looking at the history of 10th Planet it might seem kind of backwards to go from 10th Planet backwards to wrestling but I was curious if anyone could make recommendations for 10th Planet techniques that would be good for wrestling Folkystyle, Freestyle and Greco-Roman. They also both plan to do no-gi BJJ and Freestyle Judo but there are far more Wrestling tournaments available then either of those and they do best when they are competing.

    I obviously don't intend to try and teach my kids from a book, they are both going to be enrolled at Final Round in Ann Arbor Michigan at the start of next month. But I wanted to pick the brains of some of the people here (and hopefully Eddie himself since he was a wrestler at one time) about applications of 10th Planet techniques for wrestling. Escapes and sweeps are obvious but I found myself curious about pins as well.

    The thing to remember that in wrestling you need to keep off your back and some sweeps require you to roll across your back...this might get called a pin. In freestyle and greco once those shoulders hit...it is over.

    Anything from the back would be great. Look at your rules to see what they consider dangerous moves. Also, make sure anything that makes you go around the neck and clasp the hands or hand to arm, includes the opponents arm. It has been a long time since I wrestled, but that was the BIG rule.

    Other than that man, let them rule the world with takedowns...learn those things. I now suck at takedowns, but my limited 6 years from 6th grade through high school give me a massive leg up even 20 years later against those you never ever learned proper takedowns.

    Hope your kids do great!!

    Work on using the twister as a pinning combination! That's how it all started. Top mat wrestling in folkstyle is so incredibly helpful in BJJ and MMA, way more than par terre in freestyle or greco.

    You can also sit to a crotch-lock and start putting in a bottom hook to take the back when people shoot a high crotch, or if you push the head inside from a single.

    ohio2berlin covered it, but you really won't get much of a return on investment in working on pin escapes for wrestling. Bridging is about it - they only have to hold your shoulders to the mat for one second in folkstyle or a single instant in free or greco.

    From scrambles though, check out the sweep Dylan Ness from Minnesota hits at 30 seconds into this video:

    And again:

    He also hit this move in the NCAA quarter finals.

    I was thinking half-guard sweeps might be a good way for my son to get back up when he is down. This video is a compilation of some losses he had where he struggles to get control back if his opponent ever takes it.

    My daughter has problems fairly typical to girls wrestling that her opponents tend to be stronger and heavier then she is, it occurred to me that she should be fighting with leverage as much as possible as she is never going to be as strong as her opponents 90% of the time.
