HE IS CALLED DAN GABLE, AND HE IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME.
I'm not an expert in wrestling. I'm just a simple BJJ black belt who relies way to heavily on the triangle. I know this. I do have a few (actually 4) years of competitive HS wrestling under my belt. I like to to those years as the "Vision Quest" years, and they were glorious. But, I don't know enough about collegiate/folkstyle/greco roman wrestling to claim authority.
What I do know is that Dan Gable is in the top 2 best ever (Cael Sanderson arguably being the greatest). His competition record is staggeringly great as is his coaching record. Check out this great clip (courtesy of Flowrestling.org) of Dan working the heavy bag - wrestling style, and explaining the purpose of this drill/exercise (i.e., to improve stance, elbow position, and movement).
