Gavins First Wrestling Match

Gavin had his first wrestling match last night. It was here in Malad. The way it works is that they weigh the kids, and write on their hands their age, weight, and skill level. Then they pair 4 of them up into a pod and wrestle them. They wrestle once, and then the two winners wrestle and the to looses wrestle. He had a lot of fun. He lost both his matches. But he did really well. He surprised all of us. He has only had 4 practices, and I’ve only worked on the double leg take down, standing up to get away and a bit on the half. He showed a lot of skill for someone who doesn’t really know what he is doing. The other kids have already wrestled for a couple of years and have a pretty good idea of whats going on. We were all proud of him, and he was super excited to get a medal.
