By Joseph M Burtner on December 19, 2003
Format: Paperback
This is the most comprehensive book on wrestling technique I've been able to find. The chapters are as such: Basic Skills; Takedowns (106 pages worth!); Escapes and Reversals; Breakdowns, Rides, and Pinning Combinations; Freestyle Turns. The emphasis seems to be on takedowns, but the other sections are good too. The only chapter that really came up short was the one on basic skills, but "Wrestling for Beginners" by Jarman and Hanley can be used to make up for that. While the pictures are in black and white, they are as clear as can be expected, and the wrestlers are always wearing different collored singlets so the reader can distinguish them. The sequences are relativley easy to follow, and the moves' counters are shown back-to-back with the countered technique. Speaking as a submission wrestler, this book definetley improved my game, and I think any martial artist with a realistic training program will find it helpful. I'd also recomend that any high-school wrestler who wants to expand his arsenal buy this book; your coach, no matter how good he is, doesn't have time to show you everything. The only real complaint I have is that some techniques are reffered to before they're shown, which was a little confusing. However, the index and table of contents can solve most of those hang-ups.

This is an excellent tool for wrestlers and coaches. The focus is to teach wrestling moves that will fine tune or add to your current wrestling skill level. It is an excellent book for both beginner and experienced wrestlers. It is probably the best book for pure skill improvement in the market. That may not be saying much, as there are not a flood of wrestling skill books out there. In future editions the writers could add pictures from other angles with corresponding descriptions. As it is, you can "get there from here" with this book and some patience. This book does not spend time covering motivation or historical topics which for many should be considered a plus. I would reccomend supplimenting this book with video tapes, like the Ken Chertow series or other olympic/college champion video tapes covering wrestling skills.

The only wrestling book so far that actually documents techniques. Other wrestling books dont go this far into detail when talking about techniques and moves. Choose this book if you cant decide which wrestling book to buy.

I purchased this book in tandem with Greco-Roman Wrestling by William A. Martell, and I can't decide which I like better. They are both good.

Winning Wrestling Moves is well written, thorough, and easy to understand. As a mere spectator/admirer of the sport of wrestling, I am pleased with the photos and detail in this book, which help me to understand exactly what I am watching.

Though "Winning" is stressed in this book, the flavor/tone of the author's words also emphasize the love for the sport, competing against one's self to achieve success, and sportsmanship, which is admirable and impressive, since there must naturally be a winner and a loser - both of which are honorable. Also impressive is the fact that this book does not seem to be about shortcuts, just hard work and great technique.

This book has wonderful descriptions with good flow, and though it is technical, it was easy for a non-wrestler to understand. I recommend it for everyone interested in this great sport, not just athletes and coaches.

J.H. Sweet, author of The Fairy Chronicles, and wrestling fan

I've bought this book, this book is very descriptive every movement, every drill you need is here, with thousand of photographies I was a very limited wrestler, but now with this book I've improved, even people limited or not technically will found new useful stuff, incredible movements, but don't expect miracles, as one of the hardest sports, this implies praactice, practice and practice. If you need some help this book is definetely the "coach" you needed. I recomend this book, is as far as I've seen one of the best books I've ever seen, in wrestling of course. If you are like me, limited technically, this book will get you the result, but as I said before, DO NOT EXPECT MIRACLES.

I have been wrestling in high school for 2 years now and this book has helped to introduce me to a lot more moves. I now have a much bigger portfolio of moves and I know how to defend against almost anything in part because of reading this book.
