SWAT Tackling Instructional Video and eBook
I banned shoulder tackling in 1985 because it is ineffective and unsafe. Using the head and shoulder for initial contact leaves the tackler in a position of weakness, not to mention at risk of catastrophic injury. I have proven that thereâ€™s a better way. In 30 years, none of my players have died, broken or injured their necks, and Iâ€™ve had ZERO reported concussions on Defense.
My SWAT chest tackle is based on the two most powerful exercises known to wo/mankind â€“ squat & bench press. By using the chest for the initial impact, strength is transferred from lower to upper body ensuring the head and shoulder are eliminated from the tackle â€“ regardless of the angle of pursuit. The SWAT chest tackle is a joyful expression of strength that is built in the weight room and expressed on the field. It is guaranteed to lift.
More important than Xs and Os is ensuring your playersâ€™ safety. Safety should always trump winning games. The benefit of teaching SWAT chest tackling is that you can accomplish both! By purchasing the SWAT Tackling video and eBook, you will be able to teach players, of any age, how to tackle safely.
