6. Wrestling develops discipline
To succeed in wrestling, you need to develop discipline. You can’t show up to practice whenever you want to, or you will not be properly prepared to compete. You can’t compete only when you feel like it and just watch your diet occasionally. Instead, you have to develop and stick to a routine. If you are undisciplined in any part of your routine, it can be disastrous further down the road as you show up to a competition untrained or unprepared. You have to do the practice daily.
7. It brings different cultures and countries together
Wrestling is a sport that can help bring people together. Although the competition is fierce, most wrestlers can look past where an individual is from. If you walk around in different cities all across the world, people can recognize your cauliflower ear, so they know you are a wrestler. Wrestling can take you all across the globe, and you can have friends from other countries of the world.
8. It teaches you how to focus on something and master it
There are a lot of techniques that you must try to master in wrestling, but most wrestlers usually have one or two moves that are unstoppable. It takes much time and repetition in order to get a move down just right so that it can be executed during competition. Bruce Lee wasn’t a wrestler, but he has a quote saying that, “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” This quote also applies to wrestling since the wrestlers who dabble in a lot of different things, may not be the greatest. The wrestler who can discipline themselves to focus on one technique and master it, will give themselves a great chance to win.
