  • Q's for Jubs and the Wrasslers

    Completely hypothetical question. Let's say you were teaching a group of non-wrestlers some basics in wrestling for self defense; just for context, say you've been hired to teach a group of ER nurses, doctors and orderlies some self defense classes. They're of a wide range of experience; some have no MA training whatsoever, some are color belts or black belts in TMA's, some have boxing or kickboxing experience. What are the main concepts, drills and techniques you would want to impart to them?

    How long would the class run?

      Anyway, just off the top of my head I would have them work on arm drags, head snaps to a front headlock, duck unders, foot sweeps, and maybe a knee pick and maybe some simple finishes that would be practical to their situation.

      Dunno how much they'd get out of a short class/seminar type thing though, to be honest.

        I'd say sitouts for the hipmovement, I see that as very important and was one of the first things I learned.

          Let's say it's a high risk mental facility with a heightened need for security and you teach hour long classes at least twice a week. Not very realistic, I know, I'm just trying to think of a hypo where it's not just a short seminar.

            Yikes! I knew I shouldn't have gone with that as a hypo. I'm not actually teaching nurses, I'm just making up a hypo to try to get an idea of what wrestlers would consider important concepts to teach to non-wrestlers of varying experience for self-defense purposes rather than to beginning wrestlers for competition.

              Tell them to avoid the mouth and fingers. Although I have been hit I have been bit and clawed far more often.

                I would teach how to sprawl when someone shoots in for a takedown. Also teach sit outs and stand ups. Maybe teach how to do a cross face and maybe one or two takedowns (ankle picks, leg trip, single leg, double leg, duck under, etc....). Of course you would need to teach the three starting positions in wrestling (up, down, or neutral).
