Wrestling Mat Smiles
Weighing in at 40 lbs., he's a mighty force to be reckoned with!
Stretching with his teammates before the "matches" begin...
The wrestlers are matched up with someone close to their size and then they wrestle for 5 minutes or so...
...with a high school wrestler supervising them, giving them coaching instructions as they wrestle.
This round started out well...
...but somehow Koda ended up on the bottom. Not the place a wrestler wants to be...
But even when he's about to get pinned, Koda is smiling!
There are girls in the wrestling clubs too...and some of them are tough!
Koda wrestled 4 different kids and he ended up on the bottom more times than not.
But he LOVED every minute of it!
Everybody's a winner every round!
Koda's got a lot to learn about technique and strategy, but he definitely enjoyed his first experience with wrestling.
And that's what sports should be all about!
