WHAT IS WRESTLING? Wrestling involves a unique balance of practically every aspect of physical and psychological conditioning. Strength is as important as stamina. Speed as technique, strategy as intensity and power as is coordination. However, it’s not always the natural athlete that ultimately succeeds in the sport – it’s the natural competitor. Kids that are strong for their weight, well-coordinated and naturally aggressive are usually more successful early on in the sport. However, it’s the highly competitive kids that really enjoy the sport, that eventually achieve the highest levels of success. True competitors come in all shapes and sizes, and in varying degrees of natural talent. Many of the best wrestlers the world has ever seen (John Smith, Dan Gable, Dave Schultz) were not star athletes. They are, and were, ordinary people with an extraordinary competitive drive. Gifted athletes, especially those that are strong and well-coordinated, typically do well and take an early liking to the sport. Some kids that thrive on competition, with only average or below average natural ability, often surprise parents and coaches by eventually surpassing more gifted kids through hard work and preparation. Although it is wise for parents and coaches to de-emphasize winning, victories can be extremely gratifying because of the strong sense of personal accomplishment. The effort put forth in practice and preparation is apparent in competition, and not lost in a team effort. This aspect of wrestling can be a great motivator and teacher, and can develop a person’s work ethic, self-confidence and ability to achieve in all areas of life. Wrestling is great for exposing the “champion” within most any kid, but especially those that love to compete.
