It’s common for new wrestlers to lose their cool on the mat. We’ve all seen a young wrestler acting poorly after losing at a tournament; throwing a fit in the corner and then hopefully getting disciplined by his dad or coach. You never see this kind of behavior in top 3 placement athletes. It doesn’t mean these wresters didn’t start out this way, but the fact is somewhere down the road, they learned how to control their emotions. Controlling your emotions on the mat is one of the most important life lessons you can learn in the sport of wrestling. Being able to control yourself in a situation that would normally make your blood boil will make you an extremely powerful person. You will use this skill many times in your life and it will nearly always allow you to either come out on top or help distinguish yourself as a person with integrity and intelligence. The intelligent person analyzes first, then reacts, however in most people this is a learned skill. It’s natural to react first, however this is what people do when they have no (or very little) self control. Wrestling is excellent for honing this skill.
