Eliminate Your Opponent’s Best Position

A best position’ is defined as an opponent’s position that is two levels above his other two positions.

If after researching your opponent it is determined that he clearly has ‘a best position’, eliminate it.

Here is an example.

You rate your opponent as the following:

Neutral – Above Average
Top – Average
Bottom – Below Average

This wrestler has a position that is two levels greater than his other two positions, thus having ‘a best position’.

The neutral position should be eliminated when wrestling this wrestler. Any match against this wrestler would be best served by wrestling him from the mat.

By doing so you have eliminated his best position, thus drastically reducing his effectiveness.

I am not saying that you can’t take this wrestler down, what I am saying is that you have a significantly higher probability of scoring points against this wrestler by wrestling him from the mat.

And this wrestler will have a significantly harder time scoring points against you when he is forced to wrestle with his best position eliminated.

Again, wrestlers are always looking for a little edge against their opponent, by eliminating an opponent’s best position creates that little edge.

All little edges, when added together, create a big difference in the outcome of a match.
