  6. We all know Dan Hodge (http://angrymarks.com/?ArticleID=11044) and Dan Gable (http://www.mmafighting.com/news/2012/6/16/3089271/dan-gable-mma-wrestling-should-work-together-more-ufc-news) are fans of MMA. But this week we also found out Cael Sanderson is also an MMA fan (http://www.pennlive.com/sports/index.ssf/2015/05/penn_states_cael_sanderson_is.html). I suppose we could have guessed as much because he has already worked out with Wanderlei Silva. (Check youtube.) In other news, on May 15 at Bellator 137, Darrion Caldwell made 135 and went on to beat fight veteran Rafael Silva. On May 16 at UFC Fight Night 66, Mark Munoz retired with a win in the Philippines, and Frankie Edgar beat Uriah Faber -- which likely earned him a title shot. On May 24 at UFC 187, Chris Weidman finished Vitor Belfort in the first round to retain the UFC belt, and Daniel Cormier finished Anthony Johnson in the third round to win the UFC belt. Johnson was gracious in defeat, putting the belt on Cormier. It's also easy to be happy for Cormier. He's overcome a lot of adversity, and it's great he's now champion of the world.

  15. I'm curious, what does everyone think of the new Beach Wrestling rules that were modified by UWW back in January? For the most part, people really seem to like the adjustments, but obviously I haven't talked to all wrestlers. I would like to hope that all USA Wrestling State Associations have a State Championship during the 2016 season. Not only individual champions, but a TEAM Championship! The reason is simple, to recruit more wrestlers to the great sport of wrestling...ALL styles of competitive wrestling. In case you missed the new rules, here's a quick overview... -The size of the ring has increased to a diameter of 23 feet. This slightly places more emphasis on takedowns without radically altering the pshcology of beach wrestling, and no diminishing the value of the push-out (which is very important in recruiting new wrestlers) -One point for a push-out (opponent goes out-of-bounds) -One point for a takedown -Two points for a takedown with back exposure. -First wreslter to score three points is the winner, with a 3 minute time limit. -Non-scoring calls include stalemates (when the action stops while scrambling in the sand; it's part of the defensive straegy), and double-push outs (when both wrestlers go out-of-bounds and make contact with the sand at the same time; this keeps it easy on the refs) -Wrestlers are returned to their feet after scoring and non-scoring calls -Pins are no longer a part of beach wrestling (it's a two point move), back exposure without a takedown is not a scoring move and the action should continue There are incentives for current wrestlers to compete. The sand increases the difficulty of the neutral position. The shorter scoring requirements develops the offensive and defensive awareness of wrestlers. The push-out helps teach wrestlers the importance of ring (mat) awareness (and it's used in all international styles). And it keeps wrestlers wrestling, and an easy introduction for folkstyle to the international styles. This style is great for clubs as a fundraiser. Many local parks are willing to let their local wrestling club use the park for free or very low cost. Set-up and tear down takes minutes instead of hours. And you only need two volunteers (workers) per ring (one to ref and one to score/timekeep). Most tournaments do well with only two rings, so that's only 4 people required to help run the tournament. Now I know there are some concerns, mainly from the perspective of the relativly short length of matches. It may be tough for parents to drive a distance and pay a registration fee and their kids only wrestle 2-3 matches with a total time of less than two minutes. Try using round-robins, so everyone can get multiple matches (even if they lose, don't make these double elimination). Some parents and coaches don't understand that wrestling out in the sun will really drain athletes; a few minutes wrestling in the sand will be just as taxing on the body as a full folkstyle match, including overtime. In Michigan, they extended the point requirement to 5 points instead of 3, and that will extend matches without being potentially dangerous from the heat. But the topic I had was a State Championship, and mainly for the purpose of getting new wrestlers. For this to work, please include a TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP. If the Team State Championships are individual tournaments, with the easy-to-understand rules kids could recruit their friends and family members to join their team, even though those new wrestlers may heavily rely on the push-out for scoring. If they like it, they are likely to want to improve, which means going to wrestling practice...which means they will practice other styles...which means more wrestlers wrestling. To help make these beach wrestling tournaments more adult friendly, there are spots that allow alcohol (responsible drinking). There are beach themed resturants, and some beach locations may allow drinking. But encourage the parents and coaches into COMPETING! Please allow the adult divisions (Adult AND Veterans) to count towards the team points. Let parents and coaches help their kids win the Team State Championships. The women divisions haven't been stacked, get those wrestling moms out there. The same for the Veterans, get those dads and coaches out there. Allow the Veterans to also compete in the Adult, and count the points from each division towards the team total. We are always looking for ways to improve the sport that we all love. There is an answer already out there, in recruiting new wrestlers and spectators, and it's Beach Wrestling. If we aren't using this style to our benefit to recruiting new athletes and spectators, we only have ourselves to blame for letting our sport down. Looking forward to the comments, Rob Teet, SandWrestling.com

  18. All levels of wrestling need to constantly change and innovate to keep the sport exciting! Look at the NFL rule changes in the last few years to make the game safer, produce more scoring, and shorten the length of games. The NNFL owners want to even get rid of the extra point. I think the NCAA Wrestling Rules Committee should put everything on the table for discussion, every year. Change is good. When wrestlers and coaches learn how to game the current system of rules change them. It's in their nature to adapt to the set of rules presented them. Want more scoring? Change the rules!!! The lesson of professional sports on this topic is clear. Football v. Baseball (Which sport has more rule changes in the past 10 years?)

    10 Tournament Mindset Tips

    Some great Wrestling Mindset Tips for early this season. 1. Recharge your battery in between rounds. Detach yourself emotionally and mentally from other matches during the day. Don’t watch too much wrestling. Get out of the tournament area when there is some time to do so. Leave the building and get some fresh air if you can. 2. Do not make the tournament into an event. You wrestle several matches each practice. This is no different. 3. Don’t spend too much time looking at brackets. (1) All you need to know is who you’re wrestling and your mat number. You do not need to read every name, since you will probably only wrestle 4 or 5 people there anyway. (2) Over-analysis of brackets leads you to “looking ahead” and playing “what if” scenarios in your head. (3) Brackets can make the tournament into more of an “event” which could add pressure.

    Zaven Mikaelyan Is A Beast

    So as I alluded to in my post yesterday the 2014 Youth Olympic Games this year in Nanjing has been my introduction to amateur wrestling both of the Freestyle and Greco-Roman variety. I am watching this Greco-Roman qualifying Round Robin style tournament to see who will be competing in what place. An Armenian wrestler by the name of Zaven Mikaelyan absolutely dominated this tournament with three straight victories giving him an opportunity at the Gold medal which I hope to watch afterwards. His power game is unreal as he rag dolled a wrestler from the Dominican Republic in his first bout and would demonstrate his power again in the second bout. His third bout was my personal favorite thus far as I believe I really saw his technical acumen come to the forefront. He is just such an exciting wrestler to watch and I tried to find more video of him on Youtube but there were absolutely no results whatsoever which is disheartening. I can see this young man representing Argentina in the regular Olympics and taking home gold for them. Just a great athlete all around from my vantage point. Check him out in the Greco-Roman qualifiers: Match 1: 22:57 Match 2: 1:14:50 Match 3: 2:05:52

    Alternative Uniform Options

    Some guys have been talking for a while about alternatives to the singlet as a wrestling uniform. The most popular choice seems to be compression shorts with no shirt. Now, we are starting a petition to get this approved as an official uniform option. What do you think about alternative uniform options? Would you wear something like that if you had the choice? What do you wear in training? How do you think it would affect the perception and popularity of the sport?
