basic responsibilities

Before you can be part of a 5 man team... You need to know the role of a two man team and how the "rail team" works together. Let's look at the different positions and what you need to know.

What is the wing and rail?

Here we define positions, talk about general field role responsibilities. We also cover the necessary traits of each position.

RAIL - Strong defensive wrestling. Understands how to use the rail and hold position. Can do a lot of "feeding" to more offensive players.

WING - Protects his rail. Finds gaps and opening. Is the "decider" on team tactics.

STILL - The single and double leg takedowns are extremely effective in today's combat set up.

  1. Use good body position.
  2. Attack at the base of the buttocks
  3. Control your grip with positive body mechanics
  4. Lock before you toss
  5. The tighter the better before you start the takedown
  6. It's easy once you learn how to do it.
