Commentary: Real wrestling is exciting, fast-paced, never dull

She's a booster for the sport just introduced to Adair County Schools this year: 'It's great fun. Short matches. Fans are on their feet cheering most of the time, ' . . . so you don't even have time for your behind to get numb.' - PEGGY FUDGE

Personal Commentary

I was warned that watching my nephew wrestle would be difficult. Forewarned was not forearmed. The shock of seeing your kid's face being pressed into the mat is never forgotten, but you get past that pretty quickly. Josh started wrestling (Real Wrestling) in middle school and showed a real talent for it.

Kids in wrestling are devoted to the sport and incredibly hard working.

The sport is exciting to watch, is fast-paced, and never gets dull.

If you have a friend or family member involved, get out there and watch. An individual match is 4.5 to 6 minutes long (Broken up into three periods) so you don't even have time for your behind to get numb.

As soon as the ref blows his whistle, you'll be standing up screaming. It's great fun. --Peggy Fudge
