US against the whizzer

Recommended Posts

Man it seems like every time there is a whizzer situation the US either gets no points or gets countered.  Iran KILLS us with it and Japan showing it here in the first two weights of the World Cup. The pushout for Japan at 61 was spawned by it..

 

Am I crazy for thinking we NEVER score in a whizzer position?

That said if we limited it to just Iran, I'm not sure we've ever scored a single point off an Iranian Whizzer. They walk us out of bounds and grab the far leg, impeccable technique...

Too much funk in folkstyle, not enough whizzer's!

 

Bad habits!

Whizzers are used immensely in DI.  They just usually end up in stalemates as the new trend is to run it to your trapped leg's ankle.  Also, with no pushout, there is no real incentive to push that position and take any risk.

We don't see as many as we used to back in the day.

 

Sprawling has also taken a back seat to funk too.
