6 Minutes Wrestling with Life

How the Greatest Sport on Earth Prepared Me For the Fight of my Life

They call it “The Greatest Sport on Earth” for a reason.
It just took me 26 years to figure out why.

If you live long enough, life will throw you to your back.
And when it does, you’re much better off if you’ve wrestled.
You learn later in life how vital the disciplines of wrestling are, especially against a seemingly insurmountable opponent in a disease or illness.
Twenty-six years ago, my goal and mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.
I committed myself to a lifestyle and made the sacrifices.
I put in the time. I had the hunger, the desire, and the determination, but I came up short.
For many years after I graduated it seemed like I got nothing out of my six years of total dedication to the sport; that the trade-off of what I gave and what I got in return to this sport was way out of whack.
I hated wrestling for it.
Until I had adversity in my life.
And slowly but surely, I started realizing how much the sport of wrestling has given back to me.
Much more than I ever knew.
“6 Minutes Wrestling with Life” is much more than a wrestling book.
It is a book on life, love, loss, and belief.
Get ready to laugh, cry, smile and think.
You will never look at life the same way again.

The Ability to Muster up a Little More When the Whole World Would Understand If You Quit

There are going to be many occasions where you are faced with giving up,
Where the normal person would not hold it against you for stopping,
Where almost everyone would give you a pat on the back for a valiant effort.
The ability to muster up a little more when the whole world would understand if you quit is a great characteristic to possess in wrestling and in life. 
If you live long enough, life will throw you to your back, and when it does, you are going to need to be able to reach deep down to not get pinned, to get up and to win.

“Again” is the sequel to “6 Minutes Wrestling with Life.”

Wrestling Writing

Capturing the People and Culture of the Greatest Sport on Earth 

We spend 8 hours a day, for 10 months a year, for nearly 17 years, sending our kids to school to prepare them for life.
In all of that time, there is never a course on sacrifice, on goal setting, on perseverance, on overcoming adversity, on being a great teammate.
I guess that is what the sport of WRESTLING Is for.

One of the greatest assets in my life, other than my family and friends has been the sport of wrestling.
It has made me into the person I am today.
A person who can handle whatever adversity life throws at me.
The disciplines of wrestling are impactful on a young athlete’s life.
At first, one wrestles to win championships.
Then, after many years, one realizes it wasn’t the pursuit of championships what wrestling was all about – the sport of wrestling is about preparing one for life.
I owe a great deal to this sport, that is why I write about it passionately.

This book is a collection of all 50 stories I have written on this great sport.
The book is designed to be read like each chapter is a short story, separate from one another. Chapters can be read in order or randomly, that is your preference. I felt it was necessary to compile all my writing of this great sport under one cover.

The Most Underutilized Asset in Wrestling

Who would win in a fight between a lion and a shark?

Some would say the lion as he rules the land.
Some would say the shark, the predator of the sea.
It would depend on where the fight would take place – either on land or in the sea.
Imagine if the shark chose to fight the lion on land.
Or if the lion chose to fight the shark in the sea?
Sounds silly right.
But it happens in almost every wrestling match.
Take that same thought process and apply it in every wrestling match that you wrestle.
You have qualities, moves, and positions where you rule.
Your opponent will have different qualities, moves, and positions where he will dominate.
The victor will be the wrestler who was able to wrestle in the environment which best suits him, be it land or sea.
If you rule the land, wrestle on the land.
If you rule the sea, wrestle in the sea.
Get to your best position and wrestle there.
