Bestselling Wrestlers Books:
Wrestling is the American original contact sport – it really was the 1st in the history of sports!
To honor the sport that has given us stars like The Rock and Randy “Macho Man” Savage and the current WWE champ, Brock Liddell (aka Triple H), we have written a comprehensive listing of the best wrestling books – all the wrestling books that we recommend or list here and elsewhere on this site.
This blog post series will feature a book with each of the 12 basic moves in wrestling, to give you a full understanding of them – the moves that will take your wrestling game to the next level.
We think it’s essential to have a good understanding of the basic moves, and the basic moves themselves will not only help you learn the ins & outs of the sport, but they also just plain help make you a better grappler in general.
Now let’s get to it…
12 Basic Moves:
Here’s the deal.
As you progress in wrestling, you will become more effective in certain situations – this includes basic moves – moves that come up all the time in any wrestling bout.
Let’s say you start out just wrestling your friend. But then you get into a heated wrestling match, and suddenly your friend has a hold over you, you’re on the bottom, and now your opponent can start using basic moves that’ll give him the upper hand … or at least even the match. So, you gotta figure out how to deal with this.
If you get in a position where you need to use basic moves, then you’re in a dire wrestling match. You can’t afford to fight the basics. This is a book that gets right into the core moves of grappling, and lays them out clearly and efficiently.
It tells you what you can learn from each move and how to apply it, and also gives some basic tips for moving better – for instance, it has things like shoulder, elbow, and leg sweeps, and some common holds. So it’s not all just about grappling moves – but it’s a very useful book if you wrestle in any way.
You may already be wrestling well, or you may still need to learn the basic moves of wrestling – but the fact is, this guide gets right to the point of each move, explains it all, and gives you some tips to make it more effective in your wrestling.
I recommend that this book is required reading if you have just started learning to wrestle (or, if you’ve been wrestling a while, just looking for a refresh on the different basic moves).
If you struggle with understanding the moves, this may help. For example, we found the move, “headlock,” to be confusing in the first version of the book, but much easier to understand later on. So we learned to understand and apply the move better.
This is also an excellent book to get your wrestling game in shape, and work on applying basic moves effectively, or improving a bad move if it’s something that’s holding you back. If you’re a beginner wrestling fan, and don’t have a good understanding of the moves, this book gets right to the point, and will educate you about each move, and teach you how to properly execute that move.
One of the most enjoyable chapters of this book is the section on “The Wrestling Glossary” – each move in wrestling gets its own mini-explainer, and a brief description – making this book the easiest way to grasp the basics of wrestling moves.
If you’re trying to take your wrestling game to the next level, this is an excellent guide with very high quality information – it’s a great source that gives you step-by-step instructions and tips on how to do basic wrestling moves better so you can compete, train, and get ready in all aspects of your life.
We recommend this book to wrestling fans who want to improve their wrestling skills, or fans of wrestling in general.
Whether it’s just wrestling or doing takedowns, or even just practicing moves with your buddies, Ultimate Submissions is for you. The book is a complete encyclopedia with moves and techniques for wrestlers of all styles or levels.
This book is useful if you’re wrestling for an application, and you need to find out exactly how to win. The author has a wide range of experience in wrestling, including coaching in the sport of MMA, so he goes into each move in detail, describes the technique, and tells you the advantages of using that particular move in different situations.
If you’re learning how to be a better wrestler, and you just want to find out about what makes them work as moves,
