Does High School Wrestling Suck?
Does High School wrestling suck? I keep hearing stories of backyard wrestlers and female Judoka beating these guys.
This is very simple.
Go to your local high school.
Say exactly what you typed.
I'm sure you can find someone to help you answer this question.
You and Omega have obviously had better teams when you went to High School mine sucked.
It can't be worse than what you're doing now.
If I could go back to High School, I would immediately try to join the team as a Freshman.
Think about it. You're getting free, daily training in grappling. You've essentially got a built in promoter, free access to training equipment, free access to a matted gym, and free access to like minded training partners.
Did I mention that its free?
Sure, it isn't BJJ...but the positioning skills are excellent, the escapes/reversals are solid, and the takedowns are often superior to BJJ. They also focus heavily on conditioning, so you'll get in excellent shape and set the basis of fitness for the rest of your athletic life.
Do it. Stop typing, get out of your desk chair, and join the fucking team.
I wish I had. I was too into drugs and wasting my time with TKD.
does high school track and field suck? i keep hearing stories of these guys getting run over by cars.
They didnt even have wrestling at my school. What a ripoff.
No longer a Kaju-Critic
Can you beleive they used to have boxing and shooting as high school sports at my school in the 50s and 60s?
I was jealous
we had a shooting program as part of the hunters safety course but I'm fairly certain that got removed due to people whining abouts mean old guns.
