The First Wrestling Match

James had his first match this weekend. He did o.k. for a beginner. He never got pinned and is very good at getting out of the tight situations. He just doesn't get in there and grab the other kid. He had a lot of fun though. Even though the day started at 6:30am and we didn't get home until after 3:00!! It was a real learning day for him. He didn't come in last place, but close. 6th, out of 7. He's proud that he didn't get pinned though and I'm proud that he didn't cry when so many kids were walking off the mat in tears. Losing is hard for some kids.
Enjoy the pictures. :)

You have good form, maybe a little lower to get under your opponent. Just some uncle advice that I learned from pappy. I agree with the Armstrongs...practice, practice!!!
