One of the most important ways to prevent injuries in wrestling is to develop good technique. An experienced coach can provide extremely valuable feedback on techniques that can be used to engage in a formidable match while at the same time avoiding injury. It is well known that most injuries occur during the takedown in wrestling therefore in order to minimize the risk of injury at this time, sufficient practice should be devoted to the technique required to safely execute this skill in a controlled practice situation.
