Wrestling is an individual sport, you cannot slide by on your teammate’s coattails. You must practice and perfect your own techniques if you want to win.

I’ll never forget when Favorite Second Son came home from kindergarten and informed us he wanted to try wrestling.

I was overcome with visions of sweaty boys in spandex rolling around on a dirty mat. What could possibly be so great about wrestling? The truth is that there are many reasons why kids should wrestle. 

If you want your child to be strong, creative, analytical, quick thinking, self-controlled, adaptable,  the list goes on and on, you should consider wrestling as an option.
