Every year there is an excitement in the air when wrestling season rolls around. Let’s just say…it’s like a “good allergy.” You don’t mind getting it, and you don’t look forward to the season being over.  It’s an allergy that affects every wrestler and enthusiast out there.  For some, there is a full understanding of the sport, the moves, and how the game is scored.  For others, it is learned …let’s call it… behavior. But for those who are new to the sport, let us help you out by providing all there is to know from one simple website.    You think that was long, wait until you start reading!  With hopes that you find this to be helpful, you will soon be amongst the millions of allergy sufferers out there too!

Adversity has a way of bringing people together, and due to the challenges that a wrestler faces on a daily basis in practice and competition, the bonds between wrestlers become very strong. In a wrestling practice, you have a group of guys that are giving it their very all to become the best they can be, and in order to do that, they have to compete against each other, day in and day out. However, even though guys are trying to break their opponent during practice, they can also be some of the best friends after practice is over. There is a great feeling of empathy that is developed for the other athletes, and when they win big matches, you are happy for them. When they lose big matches, you can feel the sting of their loss too.
