My 7 year old started this year. I see tons of parents screaming at their kids during matches, trying to tell them what to do. I know nothing, so only cheer in support. He won third place in his first tournament and I don’t think I’ve ever screamed louder in my life once he got that pin in 45 seconds of the first round.

Also, girls are coming into wrestling at an (for me,) astonishing pace. And even with biology, they hold up well to the boys. Wrestling ends up being just about equal parts of what your technique is and how strong you are. A good technique can typically outmatch brute strength. I have no idea what’s going on most of the time, but damn is it fun
