Train Your Brain
Elite wrestlers have a method to their madness.
A reason for everything they do.
Everything matters to them.
If the goal of a wrestling match is not to just win the match, but rather to win the match, any future matches versus your current opponent, or any opponents watching the match, and to best prepare you for your most important match of the season, then a mere win is just not enough.
An elite wrestler has multiple goals in a match.
To reach all of your goals in a wrestling match –
You need to seek to dominate the match.
You dominate by breaking your opponent.
A wrestler breaks when he realizes he has no chance of ever winning against you.
Not any day in the future.
This realization becomes crystal clear to your opponent when you are a non-stop, relentless, point scorer and outscore your opponent by a wide margin.
A margin that would have kept getting wider had there been more time in the contest.
The second benefit of not being satisfied with a mere victory, and seeking to dominate your opponent, is to sharpen your technique, to increase your stamina and to accumulate crucial mat time and situational experience.
Elite wrestlers are on a mission to win a championship at the end of their season.
Each and every wrestling match you wrestle with a dominating performance gets you one step closer to being ready for your biggest match of the year.
Your finals match.
One, which you will dominate.
