Registration form

This camp is for all ages, and all levels of experience. All wrestlers at all levels can improve dramatically on their technique in wrestling, even those already having some success. The farther you go in wrestling, the more important it is to do things precisely, and more efficient. Wrestling is the only sport where you don't have to be "athletic" by society's standards. There is no wrestler body "shape", because wrestling is simply about body positioning and applied leverage. Master the positions you put your body in, force your opponent out of position, and you win. We will cover all areas of wrestling, from the feet to the mat. By going over different holds in wrestling, we will examine not just how to do moves properly, but focus on explaining WHY to do moves one way as opposed to another. We will then live wrestle to try new holds and positions learned. Come and learn how to be the best wrestler you can be!
