Before the match
During the match
I've never done that.
I'm stronger than most of the guys I wrestle.
I'm stronger than most of the girls I wrestle.
I've got more endurance than most of the guys I wrestle.
I've got more endurance than most of the girls I wrestle.
When I pin an opponent, it is usually....
in the first period.
in the second period.
in the third period.
When I pin a boy who is stronger than I am it is usually because....
he makes a tactical mistake that I am able to exploit.
I've been able to wear him down through superior conditioning.
I'm faster and more agile than he is.
I have a greater knowledge of holds and moves than he does.
When wrestling a guy, what do you do?
I wrestle aggressively from the first whistle going for a quick takedown.
I initially wrestle defensively to get a feel for how strong, fit and effective he is.
I prefer wrestling on my feet.
I prefer wrestling when my opponent and I are both down on the mat.
I've had a coach work directly with me to exploit my lower body strength with specific moves, holds and pinning combinations.
Guys on my team are ok with being my practice partner.
I've had a boy totally pinned, and the Ref refused to call it.
Never happened. The Refs have been fair.
Yes, I was behind on points, but turned him then pinned him. I lost the match becasue the Ref did not call the pin.
I was ahead on points, then put him on his back and pinned him. After the Ref refused to call the pin, I won on points.
I had him pinned, but the Ref did't call it. The guy later came back to pin me!
In some of the matches that I win, there is a specific point when I can sense that I have weakened my opponent physically and psychologically to the point that he is ready to give up.
True. I can feel the fight go out of him, and know I'll have him pinned in a second or two.
False. It takes all of my strength and skill to put him on his back and finish him off.
Beating the guys provides a real sense of accomplishment, but I would rather wrestle in an all-girls league.
Ladies - Thanks for your time. Have a safe and successful wrestling season.
