Learn to be a Smart Wrestler

Freestyle Wrestling is by far the toughest sport on the planet.  You have to constantly push yourself and strive to get better and learn from your mistakes to be successful. Did you know most wrestlers will lose more than they win when they first start wrestling?  Losing is a natural part of wrestling.

Some of the tips that I have sharing here which is essential to become successful wrestler

Always Listen what your Coach said:-

A wise person once told me to listen to people who know more than me.  I have learned this applies to wrestling.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a youth wrestler or an experienced high school wrestler.

If a wrestling coach takes the time help you by offering advice to become a better wrestler, you listen to that coach.  In most cases that coach has probably forgot more about the sport of wrestling than what you know.

Know your strengths:-

Any good wrestler is better at certain aspects of a wrestling match.  For example, a wrestler may be better in the top position than the bottom position.  A wrestler needs to know what a kid is best at and try to put himself in that situation.

Know your Opponents Strengths:-

Likewise, a wrestler should know what his opponent is good at.  Your game plan should be to stop an opponent’s attack by defending his best moves.  For example,  if a wrestler executes the best fireman’s carry you have ever seen, then you avoid tying up with that particular wrestler.

Make Good Decisions on the Mat:-

A good wrestler understands the sport and how to avoid bad decisions.  This means knowing how much time is left in a period, where you are on the mat, whether to attack or defend, etc… This comes with lots of mat time.

A Good Wrestler Learns from Mistakes:-

Wrestling is a sport where most people will lose more than they win. That is why I tell people that wrestling imitates life.  Successful people fail more than they are successful.  The important aspect of wrestling is to never quit. You identify your mistakes and you learn from them.

There is many clubs around who offers good coaching and summer wrestling camp. There is many  wrestling club in NY too One the best wrestling club that I’ve known is VhwClub .

History of wrestling

For the ancient Greeks, wrestling was a very big deal. It virtually defined the original Olympic Games as the marquee event. Wrestling history has recorded various forms of wrestling (and boxing), and many of the details as to how they have evolved.

Professional wrestling, a sport and performing art, is a popular form of entertainment in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Japan. Beginning in France around 1830, wrestling became a popular sport in Europe, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and North America during the 19th Century.

The French developed the modern Greco-Roman style which was finalized by the 19th century and by then; wrestling was featured in many fairs and festivals. Greco-Roman wrestling and modern freestyle wrestling were soon regulated in formal competitions, in part resulting from the rise of gymnasiums and athletic clubs.

On continental Europe, prize money was offered in large sums to the winners of Greco-Roman tournaments, and freestyle wrestling spread rapidly in the United Kingdom and in the United States after the American Civil War. Wrestling professionals soon increased the popularity of Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling, worldwide.

  • Greco-Roman wrestling became an event at the first modern Olympic Games, in Athens in 1896. Since 1908, the event has been in every Summer Olympics.

  • Freestyle wrestling became an Olympic event, in 1904. Women’s freestyle wrestling was added to the Summer Olympics in 2004.

Since 1921, the International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles (FILA) has regulated amateur wrestling as an athletic discipline, while professional wrestling has largely become infused with theatrics but still requires athletic ability. Today, various countries send national wrestling teams to the Olympics, including Russia, Iran, Turkey, Mongolia, India, Azerbaijan, Gambia, the United States and several ex-U.S.S.R nations.

And there is many wrestling clubs which provide trainings in freestyle wrestling in which vhwclub is the best.

A Dream of Wrestling–?

All life we do dream. We do motivate ourselves; work hard and sometimes dream become true. When I was young kid I saw Olympic wrestling on TV. After that I got a new dream that I would be on Olympic and win gold there. I signed up wrestling section. Hard working for 10 years I made to 1992 Olympics Barcelona. But I got short and won Bronze. After that I tried another shot and made at Atlanta 1996 and become short again at 4th. A Guy from North Korea Kim ILL won both Olympic.

wrestling clubI had 3 matches with him head to head and won 2 xs, his 1x but at the end he became champ, not me. But my Dream stayed with me. I still dream sometimes that one day Oroudjov will win Olympic Gold. I have 3 boys. All are wrestlers. Naryman is 3x NY state champ in His junior Cornell University, Vitali is 13 and George is 9 years old who just has started to wrestle. We wrestle everyday at my Wrestling club VHW. I speak with my sons about Olympic experience and about dream. If my kid would not win, I would train my Grandkids. I have the dream and want it become a truth.

But now we get some new Problems. Olympic Comity wants to drop wrestling after 2020. My family’s dream is breaking in parts and I think we are slowly going down. What we did, wrong! Have I chosen Wrong sport? My life is simple, my friends are wrestlers, and my heroes are wrestlers. Men, all I have got, is wrestling. Is it possible that wrestling remains after 2020? It is bothering me and that thing is taking my dream away from me. I Hope all will work out rightly and my family dream will live. I know I am not alone and have so many friends and coaches that have same dream. I am just waiting for some good news.
