Whatever martial art you may practice, our Kids  wrestling class is the perfect addition to your training routine. This course teaches basic grappling movements such as throws, takedowns, and pins. The techniques behind wrestling are found throughout many different martial arts, so it’s no surprise that athletes with a solid base in wrestling bring unique advantages and attitudes to the martial arts.

What are the Benefits?

While wrestling is extremely demanding on both the body and the mind, the benefits are undeniable. Wrestling requires a great deal of strength, stamina, and perseverance. In addition, wrestlers must react very quickly to the decisions of their opponent. Just like in martial arts, you can’t always predict what is going to happen in the ring. Luckily, wrestling teaches its practitioners how to prepare beforehand, think on their feet, and tap into muscle memory.

The takeaway? Wrestling breeds powerful athletes who can take whatever is thrown at them. By learning how to wrestle, you will get a full-body workout like no other, exercise new muscles, boost your endurance, and get in the best shape of your life. But the benefits of wrestling aren’t just physical – wrestlers must train their minds just as much as they train their bodies. Wrestling forces its practitioners to face both success and failure. Wrestlers must quickly learn how to work hard, develop discipline, and continue to fight even when things get tough.
