About the Actor

Dan Gable is the most successful figure to ever wrestle and coach the sport. His accomplishments as an athlete on the mat and as a mentor for many years after that have established him as one of the greatest champions in all of sports. As a high school wrestler in Waterloo, Iowa, Gable won all 64 of his matches and three state championships. At Iowa State University he compiled a 118-1 wrestling record and claimed two NCAA championships. He still holds NCAA records with 24 straight pins and 99 straight victories. At the 1972 Olympics, he won a gold medal without surrendering a single point to any of his six opponents. In his six Olympic matches and the 15 matches he went through to qualify for the Olympic team, Gable posted a 21-0 record and outscored his opponents 130-1. Gable s coaching record is even more impressive. During 21 seasons as head coach, his University of Iowa teams won 15 NCAA championships and 21 Big Ten Conference championships. His teams had an unprecedented .932 winning percentage (355-21-5). He also coached the 1984 United States Olympic wrestling team to seven gold medals. Gable has been inducted into both the Olympic Hall of Fame and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame. In 1996, he was listed as one of the top 100 U.S. Olympians of all time. And in 1999, he was selected by ESPN and ABC as one of the top 100 coaches in all sports in the twentieth century. Now serving as the assistant to the athletic director at the University of Iowa, Gable continues to work with world-class wrestlers, overseeing their training in preparation for major national and international competitions.

Format: VHS Tape
If you are looking for a video to help you suceed in wrestling mentally and physically, this is the video you defintely want to get. This video help me to be successful in my first year on being varsity. They made me captain of my high school wrstling team as a sophmore! So if anyone should know that it would help it would be me. Dan Gable details every move slowly for the slower people, such as my self. They show a variety of moves that most high schools wouldn't know about. This video is worth every penny , especially if you buy the video from Amazon. So for all you beginning or experienced wrestler, this will definitely help you in many ways.

A review of the essential movements leading to pinning situations.Arm control is presented, but the use of legs is particularly stressed. Both the Jam and Flow, then the Jam and Control chapters present jamming action through ankle grabbing and leg attack; ankle hooking; leg in, tight waist, and chop attacks. Then follow hip, switch, and circle drills.
The two start positions are briefly presented, and the Finish chapter's biggest example is the craddle finish, formerly presented in the Jam and Control chapter.
