Why would you waste your time learning wrestling from a DVD when your time might be better used learning other skill with an instructor who can fix your own personal technique errors instead of generalizing.
If you want to understand basic wrestling, go to youtube, but remember that your wrestling will never be your forte and to always use the skills that you used in a gym ahead of the ones that you learned from some guy on the internet.
Yeah true, i would probably practice while doing Judo or with a friend.
I am not trying to be good just pick up a few things because that's all i can really do without being taught by someone who is a Wrestler.
But thats very true, i have been looking around for something to pick up as well as Judo, Wrestling was the number 1 choice but there is no where to do it so i will keep looking and try to get a few things from youtube.

Those people that are near the schools that offer wrestling should really consider volunteering. I have done this many years and have done some coaching. It was nice to be able to keep swapping out with fresh wrestlers to really push them. Volunteeers usually got assigned to the wrestlers that seemed to be dogging it.
I know, I do Judo after all which requires a lot of technique. I don't want to fully train Wrestling(I can't) but just get a few things into my game.
But the thing is, Wrestling is very small in Australia i mean there would be around 30 places to do it in Australia. And none are even close to where i live.
