Wrestling Prep

Recommended Posts

Yes, first link while googling her name, yet provides no real background in wrestling. I've not been able to actually find a video of her of showing technique and applying "the math of wrestling."

 

One of the best high school wrestling coaches in Missouri had "no real background in wrestling".

Yes, and he also employed a defined system of wrestling. So far I have got two replies with no real answers to a straightforward question. I saw that she did a clinic at Greater Heights so I simply wanted to know what the draw was and was unable to find any videos of her providing instruction.

Lots of video out there. Here's some spoon fed to you:

 

Despite your condescending tone, none of the videos you "spoon fed" me actually show her performing any kind of wrestling instruction.

I doubt anyone thinks that she's some technical guru, but combining a wrestling camp with standardized test prep is a really great concept.  You don't need an olympic gold medal to run camp practices (organize and run the general workout plan) and then hire some decent college athletes as clinicians (e.g. Jason Welch) to handle the more specific details.  You don't even need an olympic gold medal to call your camp a gold medal camp!

Whether she has "no real background in wrestling" or not is pretty irrelevant. Shes promoting and helping the sport grow, something not enough people are doing. There are plenty of fantastic wrestlers that would make awful coaches. There are plenty of people with zero "real" wrestling background that make fantastic coaches.

Is she actually the coach?

 

I don't know this woman, and I've seldom interacted with WrestlingPrep athletes. I do not endorse her program, her clinics or anything she is associated with. However, whether or not she actually shows the single leg takedown, or the nearside cradle, has no bearing on if she is "actually the coach." Kevin Dresser is on record saying that Mike Zadick runs most of the Iowa State practices, and that Dresser fills more of a CEO role in the program. Does this mean that Dresser isn't "actually the coach" of Iowa State Wrestling?

I asked a simple question. I don't need it to be explained to me how "even if she's doesn't show moves that doesn't mean she's not the coach". I know this. Given your poor history of posting here, there's not a single thing a you can teach me about the sport.

I was part of her camp back when it was ran by CC Fisher, and was actually known as CC Fisher Camp instead of WrestlingPrep, lol. During that time, she did the mobility exercises (yoga, some gymnastics), and ran the morning practices. She teaches in a different way, focusing on very minute details that help the biomechanics of wrestling (keeping the toes pointed straight while in a tripod for extra stability, for example), but to be honest I was a teen at the time and don't remember it enough to really deem it credible (I study exercise science now). At the time, she had already been a coach for Jason Welch, and had Victor Peirera (2nd in state to Joey Davis), Brooks Martino, and Roman Perryman at the practices.

 

CC Fisher, at the time, was the nightly instructor and taught more technique-based sessions. I don't think he's no longer there any more.

 

Her stuff is definitely kind of headscratching at times, and I get the sense she's trying to branch out and commercialize what she's preaching by partnering with AKA, but she has had success. Can't really knock it.
