The most thorough sport?

“No exercise brings into play all the muscles of the body in a more thorough manner, and none is more interesting than wrestling. He will find no other exercise more valuable in the cultivation of faculties which will help him to success in agility, strength, determination, coolness, and quick exercise of judgement.” – Hugh Leonard

Personal Greatness?

 

Why does it work for some and not others? Watch this to learn what it is.

The Greeks understood.

“I swear it upon Zeus an outstanding runner cannot be the equal of an average wrestler.” – Socrates

Are you Tired?

Take a quick wrestler, get them tired, and they aren’t as quick.

Take a technical wrestler, get them tired, and they aren’t as technical.

No matter what kind of wrestler, everyone is afraid of getting tired.

It’s those who learn to perform when they’re tired that find success.”

 

– J. Robinson

Do you agree? If you work harder than your opponent in the wrestling room you WILL be able to defeat him. Performing when tired is key. Push. You CAN do it.

 

Some sayings

The Truth

In wrestling, you can’t point at anybody. It is all about what you do and you earn the results and you live with them. That translates really well in life too. Wrestling it a grueling sport. Totally crazy and excruciating. The only thing worse than doing it is watching a family member do it. It’s a tough parent sport, but it is great training for life. That is one of the biggest values of the sport. Like most things that are hard, it’s good for you. -Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz talking about wrestling

Why Wrestle?

Wrestling prepares a person to fight the game of life.
The wrestler is the one athlete that must meet his opponent and do battle completely on his own;
No one can substitute: no time outs are possible.
He has no one to check, screen, block, or assist him in any way;
There is no one to blame for his mistakes.
When he wins, he must show quiet pride and modesty.
When he loses, the responsibility is his.
Wrestling is a true sport.
In other sports, when contact is made, they blow the whistle to stop the action;
In wrestling, when contact is made, we’re just getting started.
No other sport requires more sacrifice than wrestling.
The individual, through self-denial, offers more of his character than ever be explained here.
It is something he carries with him throughout life…
Through every trial, test, and tribulation.

What type of Man are you?

Most men stop when they begin to tire.
Good men go until they think they are going to collapse.
But the very best know the mind tires before the body and push themselves further and further, beyond all limits.
Only when their limits are shattered can the attainable be reached.
– Mark Mysnyk

A wrestler explains wrestling

I saw this on Youtube as an explanation of what wrestling means.

Thought it explained it as I see it.

——–

i have been involved in many different kinds of sports. but Wrestling is the best sport there is out there. better than basketball, football, rugby etc. Yet Wrestling is just more than a sport, it changes you. people may say that its weird or that its too HARD. well its not how hard the work is, its the amount of commitment, risks, and sacrifices your willing to make to go beyond your limits and keep going.
