Wrestling is a combat sport supervised by the French Wrestling Federation (FFL). There are three main disciplines: freestyle wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling and women's wrestling. There are also many traditional wrestling styles. The objective of wrestling is to knock your opponent onto his back and tackle his back and both shoulders to the ground.
Wrestling offers many benefits to those who practice it:
1/ Wrestling helps to control and discipline oneself
Wrestling develops control of aggressiveness. The obligation to put your opponent on the ground may seem violent. But these techniques are nothing more than non-aggressive combat techniques, used with control. Wrestling is not a violent and dangerous sport. It is nevertheless necessary to control one's affective and emotional reactions, in order to absorb the actions of one's opponent and finally win the fight!
2/ Wrestling allows you to develop and build yourself
Wrestling is a rigorous sport that requires patience and concentration. It allows the wrestler to get to know himself and to really find himself as he trains and progresses. This state of mind allows him to feel good in his head and in his body. He can thus develop his personality and gain confidence in himself.
3/ Wrestling develops the whole body
Wrestling involves all the members of the body. The body is entirely in motion when it comes to protecting itself and countering the opponent's attacks! The cardiovascular system is also significantly improved, as well as motor skills. Wrestling allows you to have a healthy lifestyle, like any sport.
However, wrestling requires an optimal and rigorous physical preparation. Wrestling is learned and takes time.
4/ Wrestling develops communication and social skills
Whether against his opponent or in a group in general, the wrestler is constantly in contact with other people in the same environment. He must therefore take these people into account, treat them with respect and participate in the common life of the group.
