Wrestling is one of the oldest forms of the competitive battle for humans that allows for real exchanges without the potential for damage. This is perhaps why it has been around since people can remember – it was both a great skill to poses on the battlefield, as well as a great way t pass the time. To this day, wrestling is pretty much the foundation of every grappling-based martial art in the world. It comes in many different varieties and almost every culture in the world has its own version of wrestling. These are just some of the reasons why the following list of wrestling DVD instructionals is so huge – there s so much to learn about it!

Grappling is a vast aspect of martial arts. However, you look at it, though, there’s an aspect of wrestling in each grappling martial art or fighting system in existence today. Wrestling is everywhere and does have so much to offer to grapplers. It doesn’t matter if you are just looking to be a wrestler, an MMA fighter, or a well-rounded BJJ grappler – you need to learn more about wrestling. That is precisely what you can expect to happen if you pick up any of the 100+ wrestling DVD instructionals reviewed below!

The Best Wrestling DVD Instructionals Collection

How do you go about picking the best wrestling DVD out there? You don’t. There’s no one best wrestling DVD instructional out there. In fact, the best you could do is try to figure out one for every aspect of wrestling, but even then, you wouldn’t be able to compile a precise and comprehensive list. Namely, wrestling has to do with a lot more than just takedowns.

While most people mostly think of wrestling as a means to an end in terms of getting a fight to the ground, wrestling is a lot more than just that. There is immensely complex grip fighting, upper body positioning, clinching, entries into takedowns, mat returns, counter takedowns, pinning, transitioning, escapes … Virtually every aspect of grappling you can imagine is included in wrestling. And yes, that also means submissions, although that is more in the domain of catch wrestling rather than freestyle or Greco-Roman wrestling.

The approach we took to organizing all the wrestling DVD instructionals out there for everyone was to first focus on the ten best volumes that have been proven to help people improve radically in very little time. They offer a full introduction to wrestling, for beginners, and a whole host of tactics, tricks, and detail for those that are more seasoned. Moreover, they feature world-class coaches that have proven over and over again, at the biggest stages of combat sports, why wrestling is an essential skill that you simply must-have.
