How to do Professional Wrestling Moves & Stances : Hip Heist for Youth Wrestling Moves

August 20, 2019

Hi! My name is Matthew Moyles. I’m a coach
here at Minisink Valley. I’m here on behalf of Expert Village and today we’re going
to go over competitive wrestling. The next drill we’re going to go over is called hip
heist, and basically what they’re doing is a short sit. Josh and Richard will both
demonstrate. Go ahead fellows. Now, notice their position; they keep themselves nice
and compact, their left arm or right arm, depending on which way they’re going, is
in tight. Their elbows lock at their hip. This will prevent a wrestler from reaching
in or over. It’ll block that hand out. They’re nice and compact, their head is always up
once again their head is always up. Richard is a little bit more extended than Josh brcause
he has longer legs so that’s how they do that but he has his elbow locked into his
hip, his head is always up. As we covered before with the hip heist drills, I’m going
to show you, well Josh and Richard are going to show you, a hip heist in full motion. First
they’re going to start off to the right and then they’re going to go to the left
and you get to see it in full motion. This is used not only as a drill to teach him hip
control, it’s also to teach them how to control their breathing and overall stamina.
Go ahead fellows.

    OMG, you guys are noobs, i'm a 4 year wrestler and that is not a sit out, i agree with StormCar85, it's a whole different move and not necessarily to do during a match but it's a good drill like the guy said, anyways you'll probably see this move during a switch because some wrestlers instead of going right on top they hip heist and double leg so put them down to the mat, that way they can't get re-switch.

    These are called hip cut throughs. Its just a drill to learn proper hip motion. Many moves use this motion.

    hip heist is the formal way of calling it. Sit out is the slang

  • Reply bdgil1 March 5, 2009 at 3:49 am

    actually you grab it and block it. you peel. then you can either let go. or hold on. either way end with a block.

    when you hip heist you are supposed to get your hips as high from the ground as possible. heist means to lift, their not lifting at all.

    @maskofanbu. It's a drill for hip control. Not the actual move. Big difference.
