Of the many sports your child can participate in, wrestling is perhaps the most misrepresented, misunderstood and underrated. Hopefully this guide will help expose the myths and uncover the benefits wrestling has to offer, and most importantly, help parents understand how this unique sport compliments other sports choices their child makes.
The Actual Sport of Wrestling
Based on self-discipline, hard work, skill and determination. Conducted on a mat with wrestling shoes and headgear. Physically demanding, is relatively low “impact” and combative. Does not involve or even tolerate actions intended to cause injury.
World class wrestlers utilize skills, strength and endurance developed over a lifetime of practice and hard work.
Primary objective in wrestling is to gain control of your opponent and to ultimately pin your opponent by holding both shoulder blades simultaneously, on the mat for a period of two seconds.
