Exclamation I have a question...

I am 14 years old, heading into 10th grade and I currently have summer practices for football beginning next week, the practices run Mondays and Wednesdays 6-80. My problem is that I currently attend a submission grappling class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 and my wrestling team has their practices at the same time as my grappling class. Do I continue my grappling classes or do I go to wrestling practice?

First off it depends what you want to learn from these classes and what you plan to use it for, competing and so on. Also which one do you feel like gives you more experience and you actually feel you take something away from it? Or just choose which one you like more.

High school wrestling programs can suck or they can be fantastic make you good at the ground game and get you in shape. Really no one can answer that truly for you as YOU have to end up making the decision on what you rather do and what you like more.

BourneMMA has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Wrestling can give you a stronger base then grappling classes. You will be gone from high school pretty soon. Utilize the time you have and go full out with wrestling. Maybe you can work around your schedule and fit the grappling on the weekends.

But in the end, you will have a strong base with wrestling and you won't regret it.

go with wrestling, better place to start off in grappling and you gotta make up most years in high school. if you dont enjoy it, leave the wrestling and go to grappling

At 14, do what you like more.

If you like grappling, grapple. If you like wrestling, wrestle.

At that age, it's about building a base of skills and building athleticism. The best thing is to make sure that you're happy doing what you're doing. Worry less about a future career in MMA, and worry more about staying in the program that you like and working hard at it.
