Our activities go from Olympic wrestling, health, women sport activity, peoples who suffer from obesity and other weight related issues, sport activities for disable people, and basic education service.

 

we focus on the development of wrestling fundamentals and the unique skills of each athlete allowing them to better achieve their full potential. We provide a supportive "team" environment where athletes of all ages, gender and experience can thrive and propel one another to greater success. It is through the sport of wrestling that we aim to build character and integrity in each athlete.

 

We ensure that athletes take the values they learn on the mat and apply them to school, relationships, and all the challenges they will face in life now and in the future.
