If you’ve got the basic moves down but want to take your wrestling to the next level, then your best move is to learn from the master himself—coaching and wrestling legend Dan Gable. On Gable’s Advanced Wrestling DVD he shows how to master even the most challenging wrestling techniques—the ones that make good wrestlers great, and great wrestlers champions.
Gable’s credentials speak for themselves. He is an unscored-on Olympic gold medalist and two-time NCAA champion; winner of 15 NCAA titles as coach at the University of Iowa (a mark unequaled in wrestling history); and coach of 152 All-Americans, 45 NCAA champions, and 3 Olympic teams. Now you get the chance to learn from the master coach himself.
The Zadick brothers, Bill (a former NCAA champion) and Mike (a three-time All-American), demonstrate the techniques and tactics that will provide you the perfect blueprint for every maneuver. The On Your Feet program covers techniques from a standing position, including the stance and ties used in setups, headlocks and bodylocks, double-hand drills, breaking ties on defense, single-and double-leg attacks, tosses, and special moves. On the Mat teaches techniques from the top and bottom position, including arm bars, near wrists, arm and leg turks, sit-backs and sit-outs, rolls and granbys, hip heists, counters and pins, switches and stand-ups, standing rolls, and clearing legs and ankles.
Throughout this action-packed DVD, Gable guides viewers through each technique demonstration, then shows how small adjustments of those techniques can give wrestlers the winning edge. The result is easy-to-access, precise, top-notch demonstrations and detailed instructions on attacking, countering, and adjusting to dominate a match—all presented in the straight-shooting and motivating Gable style. Previously released as a two-tape video series, this DVD includes a bonus feature of Gable discussing leadership and coaching style, focus and motivation techniques, discipline, handling distractions, and what it takes for a wrestler to succeed at the elite level.
This high-quality DVD will help you improve your basic skills and move to a more advanced level as the master coach shows you how to get a leg up on your opponents!

Gable's career accomplishments are etched in wrestling lore, from his 1972 unscored-on Olympic gold-medal performance on the mat to his record-setting 15 NCAA titles as wrestling coach. He became one of the few former dominant athletes in a sport who is equally dominant as a coach, producing 152 All-Americans and 45 NCAA champions at the University of Iowa. He also coached the 1980, 1984, and 2000 U.S. Olympic wrestling squads.
Gable still coaches elite wrestlers while working as an assistant athletic director at Iowa and maintaining a busy speaking schedule. Recently he was selected by President George W. Bush to serve on the President's Council on Physical Fitness.
