Where Dedicated Wrestlers Become Champions


Can you learn wrestling after high school?

When asked this question in the past my automatic answer was yes of course, look at Georges St. Pierre he learned wrestling after high school. He routinely takes wrestlers down in his fights. People say, “But his is an exception and an unbelievable athlete, of course he could learn.” That is where they are wrong, learning wrestling after high school is not dependent on your athleticism. Anyone can learn to do it. It takes a desire to train.

The answer is a definite yes you can learn wrestling after high school. If anyone has told you differently they are either uninformed or inexperienced. It is just like anything else, it might take more time now that you’re older but you can still do it.

The downside is that it takes lots of time on a mat. Someone cannot show you how to shoot a single leg once and you automatically get it. Or any other move for that matter. It takes hundreds of repetitions to be effective and even more to get your moves to the point where you can hit them on the best competition.

Where to learn wrestling after high school?

The biggest hurdle when you are trying to learn wrestling after high school is where you can train. Not many gyms offer wrestling classes. Unless you know someone on your town’s wrestling coaching staff, your access to a mat is severely limited.

The good news is that the majority of people who want to learn wrestling after high school are mixed martial artists or grapplers. You can use your own MMA club or Jiu Jitsu school because the mats are similar. Hopefully your school is smart enough to have a permanent wrestling coach teaching classes every week. As my MMA AND WRESTLING post pointed out, wrestlers are dominating the fighting world. If your school doesn’t have a wrestling coach, you can either ask them to add one or look for a school that does offer wrestling.

My advice on wrestling after high school

If you want to learn wrestling strictly for wrestling, an MMA gym or a Jiu Jitsu school may not be your best option as it is very pricey. My advice in that situation is to contact your local high school coaches and talk to them. The greatest thing about wrestling is that most of its participants are good people. If they feel your want is genuine they will be inclined to help you. There are normally open mats throughout the summer where anyone can go and wrestle. Colleges along with high schools offer this and that may just be your best and cheapest way of learning wrestling after high school.

The last piece of advice is searching for other blogs like this one that offer free videos on technique. There are not many out there and that is one of the reasons why I started this blog to begin with. If you do watch videos online when you get to the open mats you will not be completely dependent on the wrestlers that are there. You will have a good idea of what you want to drill and you will be well on your way to learning wrestling after high school.

    Mike, I can’t agree with you more. I did not wrestle in high school and my wrestling has improved a great deal, at least for MMA and Jiu-Jitsu purposes. I am not very agile or athletic but what I do have is confidence that wrestling is a much needed base to have when competing in MMA and Jiu-Jitsu. Thanks for your blog Mike!
