To the Telegram:
Three years ago, my wife and I enrolled our son into the Superior Wrestling Club. We were a little reluctant in the beginning because, we didn’t want him to get hurt. We were hoping wrestling would benefit his small size. We had been told, he wasn’t able to participate in Jujitsu at the martial arts academy because he didn’t weigh enough. You needed to be at least one hundred pounds to roll on the mats at the academy.
As parents, all we knew about wrestling is what we’ve seen on TV. And we didn’t want him flying around the living room jumping off the couch and dining room chairs. Trust me, it’s nothing like the World Wrestling Federation.
In wrestling, our son has learned a lot about the value of preparation and hard work both in and out of school. We found out wrestling provides real life experiences that build and strengthen character, traits such as self-reliance, mental toughness, responsibility, self-discipline and confidence.
We would encourage parents to enroll their children into the Superior Wrestling Club. They have an elementary and middle school program that prepares them for the high school wrestling program. Sports can play a significant role in character development, and we are happy he is looking forward to next year’s program.
We have witnessed the character development, responsibility, self-discipline and more confidence that wrestling has created in our son. Thank you Superior Wrestling Club for the lessons of courage, commitment and completion.
Mark and Jennifer Androsky,
