Gladiators approach to wrestling is different than any other club in the United States. At Gladiators we do not focus on winning. We know winning is simply the by-product of all that is done to prepare for competition. The core of our program focuses on six key leadership factors which are progressed throughout each of our training sessions and vary in emphasis based on whether a wrestler is a novice, intermediate or advanced wrestler.
The six key leadership factors are:
Gladiators provides cutting edge instruction in Physical Technique and Human Kinetics.
Gladiators reveals and demonstrates winning Strategies and Tactics.
Gladiators teaches and develops Mental and Emotional capabilities.
At Gladiators a child can start to learn how to wrestle at almost any age. Our entry-level instruction is designed for students to learn, experiment and just have fun figuring out leverage, strength and physical movement. The atmosphere is extremely supportive and stresses wrestling fundamentals and general athleticism. . . the building blocks for future sport success.
We do not have a minimum or maximum age to participate as we take each child and situation on an individual basis.
Gladiators intermediate-level of instruction is for those wrestlers who typically have 2 or 3 years of wrestling experience. Our intermediate-level instruction is designed for students who express greater interest in wrestling and desire to develop greater leadership qualities, wrestling skills and knowledge. The intermediate level of instruction is a little more in-depth and physically more demanding than the novice instruction.
Gladiators advance-level of instruction is designed for the serious high school and college wrestler and some grade school athletes who are mentally, emotionally and physically qualified for such a high level of instruction and intensity. At the advanced level we focus not only on our 6 core leadership factors but the finer nuances of wrestling skills and techniques. At this level the focus is on excellence in all aspect of the sport of wrestling and personal development. You will be better prepared, hence you will win.
Without a doubt the fastest way for a wrestler to begin mastering the techniques of an elite wrestler is to work privately with one of the highly qualified Gladiators coaches.
Working One-on-One allows for the maximum amount of attention and provides the Gladiators coaches an additional opportunity to work on technique, situational drill, mat endurance, position and speed drills and of course, live wrestling; correcting bad habits that are relevant to a wrestlers growth.
Semi-Private lessons are another great way to master technique and become an elite wrestler. Semi-Private lessons are for 2-4 wrestlers maximum and provides the Gladiators coaches an additional opportunity to work on technique, situational drill, mat endurance, position and speed drills and of course, live wrestling; correcting bad habits that are relevant to a wrestlers growth.
