    Chuck Woolery sees nothing wrong with Dake's post.  Since when aren't athletes/pseudo-celebs automatically experts in pretty much everything...

    "Wrestling Room All-American."  Guy who can beat everyone in practice but when you take the mat out in the gym in front of a crowd just can't get it done; he loses to opponents the guys he beats in the wrestling have or would have beaten.

    Works well when the defensive man blocks off your tricep and won't let you switch out front to a double on your head outside leg attack.  Lacing the arm inside and collecting the far ankle/calf negates the arm block and actually leads, in my opinion, to more possibilities.  Kharchilava is the master of this--his coach was Anatoli Belaglazov with Club Dynamo back in Russia.  Great lineage of technical mastery.

    Greco brackets are full of Armenian names that aren't representing Armenia. Lots of "exporting" or heritage ties bringing more good wrestlers into the mix. I don't have a problem with it as long as federations/nations follow the rules.

    So looking at the recently posted '88 wrestle-off between Carr and Metzger, was stoked to see Carr with his variation of the Alania/Baev Dump.  At this time, it was just called a duck (or misdirection duck) and morphed into a variation now called the Super Duck (without the head control).  At the :55 second mark, Carr tries it but is countered.  At 4:07, he converts after a hard counter by Metzger.  Both these guys were so good.  The inside trips hit by both were ahead of their time (3:05 and 4:41).  Love how Carr is a stand-up wrestler in neutral, going for that famous single leg snatch and not getting bogged down on his knees.  Thank you again, Coach Fiorito, for starting the thread and getting me thinking about technique.  Have been drilling the Alania tape and even showed it to my kids, pushing them to think about their approach to technique.

    Hi I'm Coach Fiorito and you may be familiar with my Youtube channel Wrestling Mastery. In my latest breakdown I chose to cover a very powerful technique that's not used by the masses.  For most of us it's not an unfamiliar combination of positions, but definitely when used together a new move for most.  Both wrestlers I cover that use this technique exceptionally well come out of the same powerhouse region of wrestling, North Ossetia Alania in Russia.  This is one of David Baev's go to techniques and a position Soslan Ramonov will look for.  For this reason I gave the move the name ALANS DUMP. 
    For those that don't know about North Ossetia Alania, it's home to the Alans International a qualifier for the Yarigin. And a close rival to Dagestan. Khetag Tsabolov, David Baev, Soslan Ramonov, and Zaurbek Sidakov are a few world beaters from this region. Hope you enjoy my video.

    I think it was a little aggressive but could have been returned with a complimentary slap and all would have been fine.  It was certainly not in the league of Joe Warren-style punching!  https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6746560-joe-warren-likes-to-open-with-a-hard-club

    Jul 05, 2020, 13:15 | Essentials , News , Incidents FacebookTwitterSubmit TBILISI, July 5 - News-Georgia. Georgian Greco-Roman wrestler, European Championship medalist Yuri Lomadze detained in the case of reprisal against a resident of Batumi. This was reported by the opposition television channel "Mtavari Archi".
    Earlier today, the Georgian Interior Ministry reported the detention of five people on charges of unlawful imprisonment and group violence. The investigation established that in Batumi they abducted 32-year-old N.

    According to Mtavari, among the five detainees there is not only a 24-year-old wrestler, but also his 19-year-old brother, football player Luka Lomadze. The Pirveli TV channel claims that it was the Lomidze brothers who organized the massacre, and the kidnapped N. Dz. - This is their relative's boyfriend.

    I watched the Sourian match against Bayramov again .   This is what I see, tell me if you see it differently
    Bayramov slapped sourian in his face around 1:23, Sourian got upset and head butted him.  Sourian definitely deserved the first penalty, bayramov could have been penalized too, but it's a gray area
    the second headbutt at 5:46  looked unintentional and accidental to me.  It's hard to know for sure, but I didn't think it was deserving of a penalty.
    The way the match was going, I don't think Soryan could have  come back anyway

    Works well when the defensive man blocks off your tricep and won't let you switch out front to a double on your head outside leg attack.  Lacing the arm inside and collecting the far ankle/calf negates the arm block and actually leads, in my opinion, to more possibilities.  Kharchilava is the master of this--his coach was Anatoli Belaglazov with Club Dynamo back in Russia.  Great lineage of technical mastery.
