This is a good example of where learning some freestyle can help you in folkstyle. We will be in the room starting at 5:30 tonight working on some freestyle! If you haven’t signed up and paid yet, you have no idea what you are missing out on!!

Trust me on this: -1- Do one thing every day for your success. It’ll change you as a competitor / person. It can be as simple as listening to a 5 minute interview of a top coach. The point is your are TAKING ACTION! -2- You realistically have 30% more wins in you...but more wins also means you must cut your losses too. Tips: Learn to emotionally and physically manage your way through a match (stay IN the match). Score first (or no one scores), do not get turned (HOLD strong position) and on top, work RELENTLESSLY for the opponent’s wrist. This forces you to ride strong and tight. -3— Allow yourself not to be perfect. The “I either WIN BIG or I LOSE BIG” disease must be defeated. Baby steps, closing the gap, and being “ok” with good losses is important. Good luck athletes. #purlerwrestling #wrestling

Wow!! Find your bond. I love how these guys share some of their deepest feelings and emotions in and through a sport that is built with the toughest of people. Don’t let a sport divide, but let it bring you together. Enjoy the journey!!

“Do what you do and be the best version of you.”

Myles Martin of Ohio State University Wrestling and his dad share how their bond grew through the sport.

The Lakeland Predators Wrestling Club was founded in 1978 in an effort to give as many local grade school aged kids as possible the opportunity to wrestle. Based at Antioch Community High School, we are convenient to families in the Chain of Lakes region in northern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin. We strive to be flexible, low maintenance and affordable. With a focus on sportsmanship- we teach kids to wrestle, work hard, and have fun while providing competitive opportunities for both inexperienced and experienced wrestlers. We are members of the Illinois Kids Wrestling Federation and our club members are carded by USA Wrestling.
