Welcome to Team Dynamic. We are an advanced wrestling club, preparing athletes for the upper levels of competition. We are very technical in our approach; we teach students to strive for a more analytical understanding of the sport.
The team is taught by Jason Layton; a 2x All-American, an academic All-American, and a member of Mensa.
Basic Information for Team Dynamic:
-Practices are currently held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 4-6pm
-The cost is $10 per session. No memberships and no contracts. Your first session is free.
-It is held at VHW Wrestling Club, 235 Robbins Lane Syosset, NY 11773 (located next to the rear entrance of powerhouse gym)
What we are all about:
Here at Team Dynamic we have a very unique ideology. Our core belief is that wrestling is a science; the number of moves and positions that are possible are limited, and in each situation a best move exists. In addition to knowing all of the possible attacking/defending lines each position has to offer (which are all named), students will also know (and be able to name) the subtleties that make each technique work. Wrestling techniques are either 100% correct, or they are incorrect; there is no middle ground. It is important that students understand everything ; anything less is unacceptable.
Different from other wrestling clinics, clubs, and teams… We do not teach in a group setting. When training as a group, some wrestlers are learning techniques too advanced for their current level of skill while others are forced to review things they’ve already memorized. Instead, every member of team dynamic has their own copy of our repertoire, and spends their drilling time working exactly what I think they should be focusing on.
Although the reason for training is competition, I do not encourage my athletes to compete. I have many reasons for this, but mostly it is because they are not ready. Until you know our repertoire and ideology inside and out, time would be better spent learning (most tournaments take several hours, mostly spent waiting idly, wasting time). If you want empty validation for beating local-part-time wrestlers, go train at another club. We are only interested in competing at the highest levels of wrestling.
Once a wrestler has really absorbed what we have to teach, they are pushed heavily into competition (more than 100 matches per year).
By training with team dynamic you can expect to learn:
- How to hand-fight ferociously on your feet so that you are always in better position than your opponent.
- How to finish every good shot that you get in on. If you are not finishing, you are doing something wrong.
- How to be in better shape than your opponent (even if you’re not!).
- How to score on top with a variety of attacks including crab rides, ankle-lace rides, and leg rides (Top is advantage, not bottom… you should always be scoring on top).
- How to frustrate your opponent into making mistakes.
- Memory techniques so that new moves are assimilated and committed to reflex as fast as possible.
- TONS of setups, and tons of “setups for your setups.”
- The proper response for specific situations you’ve been in.
- Much more…
