You cannot buy a wrestling video and just watch it once. In order to get better you have to study wrestling just like you would for your school work. Today, I would like to talk about how to effectively use a wrestling dvd to make you a better wrestler.

What Area Needs Improvement

Every wrestler needs improvement in certain areas. Good wrestlers identify areas that need improvement and focus on those areas. If you’re going to buy a video to help with your wrestling, the same applies. You need to identify what aspects of your wrestling techniques that need improvement and those are the videos you need to purchase.

Watch Video Multiple Times

You cannot watch a wrestling dvd once and expect to improve wrestling techniques. Wrestling is a sport of repetition. You learn by doing moves over and over again. The same applies to dvd’s. You have to watch them over and over again to get a good understanding of the moves.

The first time you watch a wrestling instructional dvd, you should watch it all the way through. This will tell you what the instructor is focused on and give you an overall understanding of the dvd.
After the first time, you should watch one chapter at a time.

This allows you to focus on the technique that is being taught in that chapter. It will allow you to focus on a small set of move when it comes time to drill those moves.

Drill Moves You Learned

Drilling wrestling moves is the best way to learn a move. It’s ok to watch a move on a wrestling dvd, but then you need to get on the mat and practice those moves. Most wrestlers need to drill a move over a thousand times until they become comfortable with that move.

You need to do this with every chapter in that dvd. Over time, you will realized the small investment you made is well worth it when you become a better wrestler. It can take weeks to months to fully understand all the moves in a wrestling instructional dvd.
