I always wonder what sports my kids would end up being involved in. Mind you, I don't even have kids yet, but I do often think about it. Blame it on baby fever! 

Sports definitely play a significant role in molding a child. It gives valuable life lessons and help instill hard work, confidence, and that valuable lesson of winning/losing and never giving up! I honestly didn't fully understanding the sport of wrestling until I started working at Matguard. Now I can assure you, I am the biggest fan!

Wrestling is a great sport that teaches athletes so many valuable lessons about sport and life in general. Dan Gable, legendary University of Iowa coach, World, and Olympic Champion; is quoted as saying “Once you have wrestled, everything else in life is easy.” I still think that life can continue to throw powerful punches and challenges, however, I am in agreement that wrestling is a sport that teaches hard work and personal accountability. If one fails on the wrestling mat, there is no one else to blame but the individual. It is hard to blame a coach or a teammate for a sub par performance, and wrestling forces an individual to look inward to see what you’re really made of. Here are my top ten reasons why kids should wrestle.
