In weightlifting, it pays to train with partners who are more advanced than you. This can help you learn better technique and forces you to step up your game. It also lets you see how much more intensely people who are stronger than you train. This is also the same in wretling. It's extremely important to not just compete in tournaments, but go to big tournaments. Don't sell yourself short and skip the big meets because you're not good enought yet. It's important to attend advanced tournaments and training camps to watch how really good wrestlers battle and the higher intensity level they bring to the mat. If you want to be as good as the best wrestlers, you will have to match their intenisty level and training methods. If you never see this, you will be in for a big surpurise at your first big tournament. Not only are big meets important, but attending as many as possible before high school is a smart strategy. The greater intensity of high school wrestling is often a shock to many freshmen who are unfamiliar with the faster pace at this level. Getting accustomed to this as early as possible in K-8 will make for an easier transition into the big leagues.
