    I thought the article was really good and just gave me a few ideas on how I can improve my movement.

    I've started doing some training in the excersise (of sorts) and have incorporated it into my wrestling - it has helped alot.

    MY brother and I were getting annoyed with the fact that we can wrestle with each other about 45 mins and no-one came close to a tap and we would both then be sore and tired - so we just wrestle now with intent of control and movement it feels much better.

    As for adding in the ground and pound - were gloves and a mouth guard then when you have oppourtunity pound him - gives a good insight into trying to get out of being mounted with a good ground and pounder on top of you and also shows you how difficult it is to get a good shot in from the mount

    YODA, seems to have been the missing link in my training. I have been controlling people lately & on a regular basis! I have controlled a couple of guys who are over the 90kg mark. :)

    Controlling someone has nothing to do with their weight but thier balance and yours. While it becomes difficult for a light person to control a strong, heavy person, if you are balanced and can restrict certain aspects of their movment they won't be able to move and you will control

    In Judo comp. I've only ever beaten one person by pin and he was around the 115kgish mark (I was 87kg at the time). I agree with Dar here, I felt that the guy could have pretty much bench pressed me, by using good balance and my weight I was able to play it so I trapped one of his arms between our bodies thus negating his strength.

    Its possible to beat the heavier/stronger opponent, it may not be easy, but its possible if you spend enough time learning and drilling the basic principles ;)

    I'm quite heavy (90kg) but when I'm wrestling with smaller people who know what they are doing I will end up in positions where pure brute force is unable to help me out.

    These people are about 70-80kg and only through using a combination of brute force and understanding of balance can I get them off but I find I am easy to dislodge if I hold the top position. I am in the process of trying to get more control of my balance so I can control my opponents easier. It has begun to improve but I have been unable to wrestle for a couple of weeks so I am keen to see where I'm at.
