Why wrestling is great for kids?

Wrestling prepares a person to fight the game of life! 
The wrestler is the one athlete that must meet his opponent and do battle completely on his own; no one can substitute; no timeouts are possible.  He has no one to check, screen, block or assist him in any way; there is no one to blame for his mistakes. 

When he wins, he must show quiet pride and modesty.  When he loses, the responsibility is his. 

Wrestling is a true sport.  In other sports, when contact is made, they blow the whistle to stop the action; in wrestling when contact is made, we're just getting started. 

No other sport requires more sacrifices than wrestling.  The individual through self denial, offers more character than can ever be explained here.  It is something he carries with him throughout life and through every trial, test and tribulation.
