Teage “The Miner” Isla

Teage had his first wrestling match of the season last Saturday and WOW….he far exceeded what anyone was hoping for, including himself!  The practices leading up have been hit or miss for him.  It’s been super cold, the group is massive so there’s not a lot of one on one coaching going on, and Teage had no idea how to wrestle (correctly anyway).  But, we had faith that a tournament would be where he saw the “fun” of it all and would entice him into wanting to learn more.  We traveled to Schweinfurt which is about 2.5 hours northeast from us and there were about 6 other military communities represented as well.  They had four mats going at once, 2 each for the younger and older guys.  Teage is clearly in the youngest group seeing that he is 6 and the beginning of the age bracket.  But, this allowed him to lead his team in during the introduction lap.  PS, a bunch of 6yo’s wrestling has got to be one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen.  The pics are too cute…
