The Madonna High School wrestling team offered an 8-week basic wrestling training for free for kids at St. Paul's and St. Joseph's. The lessons started in December 8th. EJ missed one session because we didn't know if they were going to have it during the holiday so we didn't go.
This does not only teaches the kids the basic course of wrestling but it also offers socialization among other kids.
This also gives the parents to meet other parents which is nice. Being an introvert couple, hubby and I just sit on one corner all the time lol.
EJ is looking forward to the last 4 weeks of wrestling this month. Tomorrow will be the first day of work and school for this year. My kids are saying that they are not looking forward of going back to school but they can't wait to see their friends in school. Hopefully, this year would be another great year for their academics!
I've never tried wrestling, and since my twins are girls they never really had interest in trying the sport out. I've always been fascinated with wrestlers, I don't know how they do it!ReplyDelete
I am not sure how I feel about wrestling as a sport. My oldest is a black belt, but I feel like karate is a bit more controlled, you know?ReplyDelete
Looks like he had a great time! My son does karate and loves it (unless I rip him off his iPad then he says he doesn't want to go anymore.ReplyDelete
I love that they are doing this in their free time to help other kids learn. It's a great way to teach them to give back while they teach others to wrestle.ReplyDelete
My nephew is in wrestling and he absolutely loves it! This looks like so much fun! Its pretty awesome that they offer it for free! good luck with everything!ReplyDelete
I think my son would love to try wrestling some time.ReplyDelete
It's great that the kids find their friends as a good motivator to come back to school. It's more fun learning when they have awesome friends and classmates to study together with.ReplyDelete
This is a great opportunity to keep kids away from electronics. This is also a way for them to socialize.ReplyDelete
This is a great activity for the kids. When my kids was grown up i would love to enroll them to the KarateReplyDelete
What a great strengthening sport for the kids! Even better that the school/team is offering it for free. It will teach the children a sport, sportsmanship and build their confidence and social skills!ReplyDelete
My Son was into wrestling with his friends in the yard. Our school did not have a team. It is a great sport.ReplyDelete
I think it's great when kids learn a sport!! Sports teach kids so many good life skills!!ReplyDelete
My husband does jiu hits and will be taking our daughter to class with him when she's a ltitle older. Definitely fun times!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful thing they do for free! I think kids should be involved in something whether its sports or some other hobby.ReplyDelete
This looks interesting. What a great way to get the kiddos interested and teach some great fundamentals!ReplyDelete
Looks like those kids had a lot of fun and learned a lot! Love that it's free hahaReplyDelete
That is so cool! I wish they offered this in all schools for the little one to learn. Even better that it is free.ReplyDelete
I have a little girl who I'm sure wouldn't like wrestling lol.... But I know so many little boys that just love the sport!ReplyDelete
Looks like the kids had tons of fun! I bet this is something my kids would want to do!ReplyDelete
Wrestling is not big where I live They don't offer it in schools, but my husband would love for my sons to get into the sport.ReplyDelete
