The Baby Struggle: children 4 to 6 years
Introduction to wrestling can begin at an early age, and many clubs have developed “Baby wrestling” slots dedicated to boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 6.
The care of this public is provided by qualified teachers, trainers and leaders of struggle who provide a training completely adapted to the specificities of the children and thus respond to their needs and expectations while preserving their physical and psychological integrity.
The federal program “wrestling games”, designed and developed for 4-6-year-olds is based essentially on the dreamlike world of early childhood (a reference to storytelling, the animal world, traditional struggles…), and thus allows the youngest to integrate very early the fundamentals of the discipline through playful pedagogical situations.
The School of Struggle: children 7 to 11 years
The wrestling school is designed to welcome students between the ages of 7 and 11, who are in the Golden Age of learning. It is governed by the federal regulation “Fight Against Youth” which sets as its objective :
Implement a simplified wrestling regulation that does not distort the activity but makes it accessible and easily understandable to young wrestlers and their parents.
Keeping the young wrestler loyal to the activity fights through regular meetings in addition to teaching centered on the FILA Masters, a method of progressive technical-tactical learning, varied and methodical going from the known to the unknown and from the simple to the complex.
Encourage the formation of the “young referee”, to offer young wrestlers other perspectives of evolution within the wrestling activity than that of the simple competitive practice.
Therefore, “Youth Wrestling” is an attractive and safe style of wrestling for children and their parents that remains easily accessible to beginners. It rules out threatening gestures. It is easily arbitrable and understandable to the viewer.
Wrestling is a complete sport, involving all the muscle groups of the practitioner and the types of muscle contraction. It allows an organic and land-based development that demands all cardiovascular systems and contributes to the construction of a new dynamic balance about the ground and the opponent (torque balance).
The nature of the opposition entails a significant development of the taking and processing of various information (kinesthetics and visual) to make decisions in a short and limited time.
Development of aggressiveness control
The adversarial relationship can lead to aggressive behavior linked to the physical contact of the other and to the obligation to undergo situations against his will. The challenge is to move from aggressive behavior (conscious search for wounds, will to harm the opponent) to combative behavior (without intention to hurt) by controlling oneself. Conflict situations created, and present in combat requires the mastery of emotional and emotional reactions.
Personality development: self-realization
The practice of a fighting sport contributes to the construction of a certain serenity in the relations with others, allowing them to be well in his head and his body.
