How to do Professional Wrestling Moves & Stances : Ideal Double Takedown for Youth Wrestling Moves

August 11, 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 move we’re going to simulate is called an
ideal double. It’s the simplest forms of the double lay takedowns. Here, Richard is
going to shoot the ideal double on Josh, he’s going to lead with his right leg and that
is going to be his penetration step. Go ahead Richard. Notice how he stops. His arms go
behind his opponents knees; these are called the hinges of his knees. What Richard is going
to do next is he’s going to chop of the hinges of his knees while he drives forward
with his shoulders taking Josh to the mat.

    What you do is…
    Post your arms out on his shoulders,
    Grab your own hand,
    Establish the guillotine,
    Hop into a closed guard, and choke that nigga out. Jiu jitsu FTW.

    well actually u have to have your head into him so you can drive with your head and shoulders.

  • Reply Noah Eurioste December 13, 2008 at 3:37 am

    you should just drive through and chop the calves not the knees

  • Reply Ozzy Glez December 20, 2008 at 4:53 pm

    he did shoot from to far away
    and didn't get in deep enough

    and i'm not much of a chopping person
    i just lift people and slam back down

    is it your first year wrestling?

  • Reply Czar January 8, 2009 at 3:43 am

    yeah and going straight backwards by chopping wont work against good kids, theyll just sprawl, the best way is to get to the side and then chop and drive

  • Reply insanekss January 26, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    chopping will rarely work against a good wrestler. i like to hook my leg around theirs and drive, kinda like a trip.

  • Reply Azn ChuckNorris January 27, 2009 at 1:06 pm

    indeed..the kids did not get his hips close enough to his opponent. btw…the guy teaching is silly, the chop is supposed to be at the ankles, not at the knees…=) works a lot better that way

  • Reply Azn ChuckNorris January 27, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    if the take down guy's head is in his chest…that means he is too high up….obviously then he did not even level change. u need to level change and ur head should hit the guy right in between the stomach and the groin. Basically it knocks his hips back…

  • Reply Azn ChuckNorris January 27, 2009 at 1:10 pm

    drive backwards…= sprawl = turn corner and u pwn the kid…. Grab ur anchor…big step off to the side. Going backwards is not necessarily a bad thing because u can always switch to cutting the corner. I am not disagreeing with u, i am just pointing that out =)

    leaves him open for headlock

  • Reply Azn ChuckNorris February 9, 2009 at 4:26 am

    as opposed to all the other clubs/schools/places that call it a double leg takedown…

  • Reply Azn ChuckNorris February 9, 2009 at 4:27 am

    ohhh…i saw this one wrestler at 215 hit a double like that about 6 times in a match against r varsity wrestler who is a beast… every time i watched it i groaned, but it was a rily clean takedown…

    which will get your ass pinned. this is ameuture wrestling not pro wrestling so talk ameuture wrestling. I love pro wrestling doe

  • Reply RHIN0TV May 17, 2009 at 5:10 am

    All I'm trying to say is that in the wrestling you see right there, you won't see guillotines because you'll get pinned and it takes but a second. In WWE or MMA do it all you want

  • Reply Niels Aarlev-McLeod May 30, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    it's called an "ideal shot because it's the basic movement on which all variations are based.

    ohh ok it still isnt that good i think but ok

  • Reply Keegan Austin September 17, 2009 at 8:30 am

    For real fighting purposes theres a karate move where you sweep you leg to your chest then relocate it with minimal movement of the thigh. could be usefull if you see this coming.

    The only problem with that is their domination only lasts until the second lat year of elementary school lol! In high school us men get bigger,stronger,faster and meaner. 🙂 That`s the reality.

    you also did not turn the corner which is way more effective

  • Reply Nicholas Murray July 17, 2011 at 3:39 am

    he took a penetration step, tho he needs to teach them to cut the corner instead of driving right to the mat

    only fat people and guys that give up stop half-way on their shot, the rest do a sucessful deep penetration knee on the ground full power double or single leg that lifts their oponent 4 feet on the air and slam them on the mat.

    ok experts ,everyone knows u cut the corner on classic doubles.this ,however is a blast type double and is all forward momentum.why do people always feel the need to criticize? and if youre going to ,make sure your criticism is warranted.the guy is helping.
