Freestyle Mat Wrestlingby Carl Adams
Some of the Freestyle rules have changed and they do tend to change every year. However, Head Coach Carl Adams of Boston University Wrestling covers offensive techniques and strategies from the top position. He demonstrates the Crotch Lift, Gut Wrench and three ways to set up the Ankle Cross turn. Carl also demonstrates defense on the mat. He covers the opposite hip down concept, defense to the Crotch Lift, Gut Wrench and Freestyle Turns. Approximate running time of entire course is 60 minutes.
A+W Wrestling actually started over 33 years ago. Carl Adams has been introducing innovative wrestling products to the market for over 33 years. His World Class Wrestling Institute is considered by many to be the finest wrestling camp in the world. He has written three very popular instructional wrestling books and his 9 instructional wrestling videos have been the most popular instructional wrestling videos over the past 17 years. Over 100,000 of his videos are being studied worldwide.
Carl also invented the "ADAM" Takedown Machine 30 years ago. The "ADAM" Takedown Machine is considered by many to be the finest takedown training device ever for the sport of wrestling. That is, until now.
During September of 2003, Carl Adams, a former four time National Champion and college coach for the past 34 years, felt that there was a tremendous need for what is now called the Snap and Shoot Takedown System. Carl and one of his former wrestlers, Dr. Earl Walker acted on their belief of what this piece of equipment could do for wrestlers at Boston University and for wrestlers all over the country. Hence, A+W Wrestling Equipment Inc. was formed.
