VHW (Vougar’s Honors Wrestling) club was established in 2006 by two time freestyle wrestling world champion and Olympic bronze medalist Vougar Oroudjov. Vougar has transformed his successful wrestling career to coaching by transferring his knowledge and experience to children of all ages and skill levels including those with special needs. Vougar’s passion for wrestling, his skills, and his techniques have contributed to his success as well as to the success of his students.
Vougar is not only a successful wrestler but also an experienced coach, trainer, and leader. He has 13 years of coaching experience and he is currently one of the wrestling coaches for Nassau Community College. At his wrestling club he has trained numerous county and state wrestling champions. Many of his alumni have gone on to Ivy league Universities such as Harvard, Cornell, American, Northwestern, Ohio State, Indiana, Michigan, NYU, and Hofstra, among others. Vougar helps his students reach their fullest abilities athletically as well as helping them through the college application process. He guides his students to colleges that will allow them to succeed not only in wrestling but, in their future careers.
Vougar not only has a good rapport with all of the students, but also with the parents involved in the club. He takes an interest in the needs of his students as individuals and helps them to achieve their goals. He genuinely loves the sport of wrestling and cares about his students and their families. He has formed a close bond with the students and parents that have joined his club and they have become in a sense, part of his family. Vougar works year round including the off season and accompanies his students to wrestling tournaments. He is committed to his career, his students, and their families.
VHW instills discipline, dedication and a sense of pride in its students and emphasizes the importance of academics as well as athletics. Vougar’s hope is that all of his students will excel at the college of their choice whether they continue to wrestle or not. VHW builds confidence for future success, not only in wrestling, but in all aspects of life.
