The suplex is a very powerful and effective throw very commonly utilized in Greco roman and freestyle wrestling. However, it is not utilized very much in folkstyle (collegiate, high school) wrestling due to a different scoring system and tighter restrictions on slams (throwing your opponent to the mat).
Please practice this technique only under the supervision of a professional instructor. It is very easy to injure your training partner with this throw. For other wrestling techniques, please visit the main Grappling section.
Instructions for the Suplex
You will start in the clinch behind your opponent with a tight body lock.
Then you will "pop" your hips tight to him/her and prepare to throw.
To start the throw, you will lift your opponent using your hips.
Make sure to maintain a tight body lock through this process.
You will then push off your toes and arch your back until your opponents upper back and shoulders hit the mat.
To finish maintain the lock and roll to a dominant position.
