 2016 /2017 NFHS wrestling Rules

Positioning is the most critical aspect of wrestling.  

“You do not win wrestling matches with moves, you win wrestling matches with great positioning”

                   Dan Gable

Positioning: To get your body into a position where your opponent can not do much to you and from which you can more effectively score. 

Hand Fighting

Being aggressive means attacking your opponent’s wrestling stance, not shooting.


  1. Do not be comfortable to be on the mat with. 
  1. Do not stand and stare at your opponent.

Push, Pull, Circle Pull, Hit, and Fake

Two Rules for Attacking an Opponent’s Stance

 1. Hands move/Feet move

2.  Break his stance and improve yours
