About this Camp | For All Wrestlers Ages 12-Up

Five day (5) intensive wrestling camp dedicated to building State Champions by focusing on Hand Fighting and Positioning. Learn why the position works and then apply that knowledge to every technique. This understanding of positioning creates a much higher level of retention and turbo charges future learning capabilities. Every day will consist of demonstrating techniques, theory, positioning, strategy, drilling, live wrestling and group discussions to review and ask questions.

More About Maryland Wrestling Camp: State Champ Camp in Potomac, MD

Not only will we introduce new concepts and thought processes to wrestling, but we will prove them with videos of some of the top world competitors, showing examples of when minor positional adjustments made the difference between winning and losing.  Some examples are Nickal v Martin, Snyder v Sadulaev and Burroughs v Chamizo.  We will review their matches and highlight the adjustments that made the difference.  There were some key head placements, in and out of the 4 boxes, that changed the outcomes of each match.  Once you understand these principals, even a novice can become a nightmare to wrestle.  You may know a ton of moves, but do you know how to get in position to execute them?  This Maryland wrestling camp will prepare you to hit more moves and give up less points.

Message from the Head Coach, Todd Margolis

After competing at the highest levels of wrestling, submission grappling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu nationally and internationally (1997-2004), I turned my efforts to coaching. Like so many athletes, I could do things better than I could explain them. Teaching and coaching for the last 15 years has given me a deeper understanding of why techniques work and what underlying principals support each technique.

A few of these are:

  • Is the position top, bottom, perpendicular or parallel?
  • Is my head in one of the 4 central boxes of control?
  • What 8 key attributes do I possess and how can I work on gaining the others?
  • Are you a transition hand fighter?

Competing against World Champions, sometimes winning and sometimes losing, led me to ask deeper questions about my understanding of basic positions. My goal is to share this info with the world, one wrestler at a time.

Who Should Attend

This camp is open to all levels of ability ages 12 and up.  Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced wrestlers will all find value in the concepts and techniques shown at this camp.  Whether it's building from the ground up, or, adding new dimensions to an already dynamic game, this camp will improve your wrestling, guaranteed.
