Attack System Training for the Youth Wrestler
Attack System Training for the Youth Wrestler: Your athlete's path to success
Your young athlete can begin his journey to long-term success by getting an introduction to our explosive and highly successful Attack System. Here, he will learn technique designed to set him on the course to long-term success, as opposed to the "magic moves" syndrome taught so often.
Magic Moves will work for a while on less experienced wrestlers, but as they grow older, those athletes will start to counter them. The biggest drawback to youth wrestlers learning these magic moves is this: While they are having short-term success with them, they are NOT learning fundamental wrestling technique that will set them on a course for long-term success. For some athletes and parents, by the time they figure this out, its too late.
Of equal importance is the emphasis on the long-term process. “Its a marathon, not a sprint", as we often say here. Young athletes in particular have to be enjoying the process or they are very likely to fall victim to burnout. Burnout levels in wrestling are extremely high, as it is a very demanding sport. We design our programs, and counsel parents and coaches, specifically to greatly reduce the risks of burnout.
I want your young athlete to learn to love the sport so he still wants to wrestle a decade from now. My parents guide to youth wrestling was specifically designed to address this issue, as well as a host of other issues. To receive this guide absolutely
