This class is 1.5 hours long. In a typical class you can expect 3 parts
1. Warm Up
Jogging, calisthenics, wrestling “gymnastics,” and games to help kids develop strength and coordination
2. Wrestling Technique
Instruction and drilling to develop wrestling fundamentals
3. King of the Mat
Takedowns competition to help kids enjoy the feeling of competing and build their confidence
We limit class size to 10 kids so that each athlete gets a lot of 1 on 1 coaching.
Our 6 and Under program is run by Coach Yuri who has incredible patience for young ones but also knows how to help them develop the discipline needed to make the most of the class.
Coach Yuri is often supported by one of our elite wrestlers from our youth and young adult club teams. This helps our youngest athletes see the path in front of them.
What You Should Bring
The beauty of wrestling is that it requires little that you can’t find within yourself. That said, you’ll want to bring a few things with you to practice.
1. Comfortable clothes
Bring a t-shirt, socks, and either soft shorts or sweatpants.
2. Bottle of water
Your child will sweat and want to stay hydrated.
3. Wresting Shoes (Optional)
At this age you can just wear socks. But wrestling shoes help you grip the mat so you don’t slip. This makes the drills much easier.
