Wrestling: The Making of a Champion - The Takedown by Bob Douglas
English | Aug. 1979 | ISBN: 0801491770 | 196 Pages | PDF | 52.4 MB
In 'Wrestling-The Making of a Champion,' Bob Douglas presents a move-by-move guide to wrestling's most crucial maneuver-The Takedown. Douglas includes over 1,000 action sequence photographs that contrast a black wrestler w/a white wrestler against a measured horizontal and vertical grid. These photographs demonstrate clearly the relative position of the wrestler during each move, enabling the novice and expert alike to learn the technique of champions.
Douglas shows that the key to successful wrestling is a working knowledge of all the components of the takedown -the set-up, the penetration, and finally the second move.
Through illustrations that are remarkable for their clarity and through Bob's easy-to-follow instructions, the wrestler can learn several set-ups for each takedown and several second moves from each set-up, thus gaining the flexibility to become a champion.
