WHAT TO WEAR
Regular gym gear – Shirt/singlet and shorts.
For hygiene reasons street shoes are not permitted on the mat.
You can either go barefoot, wear socks or, if you have them, dedicated wrestling shoes.
Please make sure your fingernails are clipped short and all jewellery taken off.
Please also bring a sweat towel, bottle of water, and a towel if you want to shower afterwards.
We strongly recommend you bring a towel and change of clothes, as training can be strenuous and sweaty, particularly in the summer months!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Sessions commence with a short warm-up consisting of exercises that begin to build on techniques needed in wrestling followed by neck exercises and general stretching.
The coach will then teach a number of wrestling moves. Wrestling is kept at a 50-80 per cent effort level. This allows you to learn technique at an easy pace and not expend too much energy.
Modified wrestling games may also be played to build on the skills learnt.
During training you may be introduced to many skills and exercises you have not previously encountered using muscles you may not have used before.
Some skills you may pick up straight away. Other skills may need time and practice to develop. The important thing to remember is: give it a go and have fun!
All fees go towards cost of coaching, venue hire, insurance, and affiliated costs.
First THREE wrestling session is free! This is so you get a real feel for the sport and the club before you decide to continue.
