We have been with the program for about 9 months and can not say enough wonderful things about this program or Coach Murphy. We looked at every club in town and chose Wrestling with Character because we liked that they take the time to coach the kids at an appropriate level and pace, unlike other clubs that throw young untrained kids onto the mat risking injuring themselves or others. We have been more than pleased with the program's introduction of skills, agility, and wrestling moves.Even more importantly is how Coach Murphy and his staff train the kids to be good sportsmen. While other clubs focus on "the win", Wrestling with Character focusses on the wrestler behind the win. We have been to a couple meets and have seen other coaches yelling at little kids, coaching in an aggressive manner, and all around acting like terrible role models. This has only solidified why we love Wrestling with Character. Coach Murphy successfully coaches his kids to a win by positive encouragement, going over what they have learned and what they should be doing in a kind and approachable way.All in all, as a family with collegiate, semi-pro, and pro athletes in our family, as well as multiple coaches; we understand exactly what is needed to make a child a successful athlete both physically and emotionally and have not seen any other wrestling club in the area that answers to these needs like Wrestling with Character and Coach Murphy.
