We bought this book along with another one for our 5 year son for husband to help coach him his first year. It has good stuff in it, but my husband was hoping it had more beginning drills in it.

Format: Paperback
This book is a little marvel.I got it as I am coaching a group of adult beginners...and it's really helpful....my wrestlers are slow to learn moves and not too agile, so the slow/kids approach is perfect.
A bit disconcerting, all the photos of mere kids doing the moves...but that's to be expected as it's originally a teach-kids book.
But it's really much more than that. It can serve as a premier at any level.
The explanataions are very clear and can usefully be adapted..so often it's difficult to put into words information about moves, stances etc.
This little marvel does it very well.

Format: Paperback
This book is a good book for coaches who are new to wrestling. It does a good job going over the concepts of coaching, covers topics in coaching that you might not think of on your own. It covers the seven basic skill that the USA Wresting Federation thinks are important. It has some chapters on actual moves and counters but it it very basic. It also talks about teaching skills but is very weak in discussing or showing drills to help solidify the skills. It has a games section at the back but I don't think that is a very good section. The section on developing season and practice plans is very generic. Overall I would recommend this book but only with an additional purchase of a good drills book and maybe a season long practice plan book (not sure if this even exists)

Very good for inexperienced, novice coaches and a nice review for coaches moving from high school to youth wrestlers. Thorough overview of the basics - nice addition to the library...

This really helped my son! Before the book all he would do is cry (he was only 4)! Even though i tried to make it fun, he would lose all the time. This year he got two trophies and a metal! Boy was he proud too! If i only took one thing away from it, it would be don't get frustrated with the little guys, and make it super fun!

I liked the simplicity of this book. I haven't wrestled now for over 20 years so it helped to refresh my memory on a lot of things to help my son.

I bought this to help my son with wrestling and it has been a great teaching tool for me. This has helped my son improve this year dramatically.
