Israel Martinez Wrestling Technique Page

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Israel Martinez is one of the top coaches in Illinois wrestling and looked to for his wrestling expertise in the MMA world as well. Top fighters consider him their wrestling coach. These videos were taken at the Pape Foundation, NFP Wrestling Clinic that WrestlingGear.Com helped promote and sponsor. Israel was nice enough to donate his time to help us raise money for kids that were born with cleft lips Internationally. My first son, Jackson, was born with a cleft lip so it's something that is near and dear to my heart. These are some early Israel Martinez technique clips from 2008, just as he was starting to build the "Izzy Style" brand that is now well known among both the...

Nike Hypersweep Wrestling Shoes

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Hard to Find Shoes The Nike Hypersweeps wrestling shoes were definitely the hard to find wrestling shoe for the 2016 - 2017 wrestling season. At this time of the year (early 2017), we are not sure what is going on with the Hypersweeps. I would expect the Black Hypersweeps to be back next year and maybe a new color way? We will see if that prediction is correct or not.  Unlimited Hypersweeps The Unlimited Version of the Hypersweeps were made on a limited basis and are just about gone. We do have a few good sizes available left but are about out. Don't wait too long if you want this Unlimited color, unlike it's name the inventory on it is...

New Adidas Impact Wrestling Shoes

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Wow for 2017 they are offering more colors of the adidas Impact wrestling shoes. One color combination is going away for 2017, so if you want the Solar Yellow Silver Black Impact wrestling shoes, better order it sooner than later. Chances are if you are reading this late in 2017, we are about sold out in the shoe. I will admit that one sort of surprised me that it was not brought back. That was one of the better selling colors on our site and one that was asked for when customers came into our warehouse. Time frame - the new colors will be available approximately June 2017. Look for ordering options as we are able to pre-sell the shoes. ...

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


ASICS has done it again with this mid-season release of a new color way. Check out our ASICS Omniflex Attack V2.0 wrestling shoes in all four colorways. The Black/Rich Gold colorway is likely going to be very popular for those wrestlers looking to make a statement at the end of the year. A little insider information - this shoe is already retired and won't be made for the 2017 season. So if you want it, you should order it sooner than later. Because once it's gone, it will gone. This goes for all of the four colorways of this shoe. Don't wait till next year, because I can almost guarantee some sizes in some colors will be gone.  This shoe...

adizero Varner Wrestling Shoes for 2017

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


It did not take too long for adidas to announce their 2017 shoe line up. To me it seems like it's been an arms race lately to build the best wrestling shoes between adidas, Nike and ASICS. 2017 will prove to be another important year to win the race (so to speak). The MSRP on these adidas wrestling shoes is going to be $145 and looks like this will be their most expensive shoe. It does not look like the Tech Fall wrestling shoes will be made next year so you best buy a pair now if you want it! Here are some features from the catalog: One piece of engineered mesh for the upper. Expect that to mean no...

Wrestling Weight Management

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Wrestlers Need to Think About Their Diets When I think about all the wrestling I did, a big part of it was the weight that I cut the last few years I wrestled. When I was in grade school, I did not cut any weight other than maybe watch what I ate the day or two before weighing in for the end of the year tournaments. When I started wrestling in high school and college (late 80's/early 90's), our school actually measured our body fat in the water and with calipers. This was almost unheard of back then but is now common. So our coach knew how much weight we could lose and would make line up changes based on...

The Perfect Wrestling Headgear (Earguard)

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


The Perfect Headgear is Important Just like in other purchases of equipment or clothing outside the sport of wrestling, there are tradeoffs. The perfect headgear for you or or your son or your daughter might not be the perfect headgear for a friend. Things to consider include cost (most of us are not on an unlimited budget), color, comfort, weight, and fit.  Cost and color are pretty obvious ones, I won't spend too much time on those. For the most part headgear range from about $20 to $40. Some headgear like the Tornado come in almost a limitless set of color combinations, whiles most come in most top team colors and a select few only come in a handful of colors. ...

Defense Soap to Help Fight Funk

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Prevention is Key Fortunately when I wrestled in junior high and high school, I never had ringworm. I can't say that about college, but some of the things we did even back then will go a long way to help combating the funk.  First, make sure you take a shower as soon as you can after wrestling. That goes for practice or competition. We would even shower sometimes between matches at a long tournament and almost always showered at away matches before heading home on the bus. Many tournaments have long breaks where you can leave the tournament location to grab a bite to eat. Take a shower in between those long breaks. Keep your gear clean. This is our second...
