Why Every Aspiring Athlete, Regardless of Sport, Should Wrestle For at Least a Few Years
Wrestling is considered the quintessential “Base Sport.” It exemplifies athleticism, strength and competition which was why it was one of the first ancient Olympic sports. At its core, the goal of wrestling is to achieve perfect athletic movement, while applying physical force and targeted explosion in a rapid and ever adaptive mental and emotional state, all happening simultaneously against a worthy opponent and a time clock.
Wrestling’s mastery of basic athletic movement, force and explosion perfectly transitions into every sport your child will compete in. Athletes who wrestle typically develop faster in all sports as well as in the classroom and in life. In addition, the individual nature of wrestling promotes other interpersonal strengths, skills and habits such as:
1. Mental and Emotional Awareness
3. Respect of Self and Others
4. Strong Leadership Skills
5. Being a Self Starter
6. Hard Work and Preparation
7. Performance Under Pressure
8. Mastering of Fundamentals
Whether your son or daughter desires to be a state champion wrestler or a highly skilled athlete in any other sport, wrestling for just a few years, especially at a young age, will help them quickly develop the athletic movements, mental and emotional awareness and confidence utilized in all competitive sports and life.
