It’s a fact of life. Adversity is guaranteed. It’s how we respond to these challenges that makes the difference. Wrestling instills the values of courage, hard work, discipline, perseverance and humility. It forges character that lasts a lifetime and trains people to triumph over trials. This is the promise that wrestling delivers to our next generation.
