As the State tournaments have been completed its time to start thinking about next year. The Twister Wrestling Academy is for wrestlers who want to work extra to prepare for off season competitions and also to get them headed in the right direction to achieve their goals next season.
I want to say Congrats to my friend Tervel Dlagnev, as he has just won the 2012 Olympic Team Trials over his old nemesis and he will be representing the USA in London this August at the Olympic Games. Its been amazing to watch how he has developed into the wrestler that he is. When I first met him he was a Senior in High School and only placed 3rd at the State Tournament. He is a perfect example that by leading a clean lifestyle and working hard towards a goal that anything is possible.
Welcome to TwisterWrestling.com 2.0! This redesign has been in the works for a long time and its nice to see it up and running. There will now be frequent updates on any camps and clinics that I will be coaching at and also any new products that are available.
Thanks to Jeff Sylvester for all of his time and effort. As with all things in my life I try to work with former wrestlers in any way possible. For example if I was going to buy a car I would buy it from a former wrestler, if I am shopping for a dentist I find a former Longmont State Champ! I think that the lessons learned through wrestling carry on into our lives forever and it means alot to me to keep it in the family. So if you need a website designed contact Jeff.
Well the summer is almost over and we now have time to reflect on another successful summer. In addition to teaching at several wrestling camps and clinics this summer I was able to coach with my alma mater UNKon an overseas trip. We traveled to Paris France, Istanbul Turkey, and Varna Bulgaria. It was an amazing experience where we got to see some incredible places as well as train with some very high level wrestlers. We trained with the Turkish National Team for 2 days and that was my first time I have wrestled with an Olympic Champion-the Turks are always contenders at World and Olympic Championships.
Also I have continued to sponsor twin brothers and MMA fighters Joe and Jake Ellenberger. Both fighters are coming off recent victories and I cant wait to see whats in store for the future. Joe just won his 12th straight fight and Jake has a huge fight coming up Sept 17th against former UFC title challenger Jake Shields. Check out Ellenbegermma.com for more details on upcoming fights.
As the summer is coming to an end and the fall is upon us we are all starting to look forward to this season. Now is the time to start to develop new techniques that you will need this season to reach your goals no matter if your goal is to win a State Championship or just make the varsity the Twister DVD can help you overcome even the toughest adversary!
Good luck to everyone and dont forget to follow us on facebook.
We have reached the halfway point of the wrestling season and a few new things are going on here at Twister Wrestling. The first is that the state tournaments are coming up soon and now is the time to learn any new techniques that will help your wrestlers reach their goal of becoming a Champion. It takes a few weeks of drilling and working on techniques to make sure they are ready to perform it in a match. So now is the time to purchase your Twister DVD. I am also currently putting together my spring and summer camp schedule so stay tuned for more info on summer camps and the Twister Wrestling Academy starting in March. The last thing is that we are sponsoring Jake Ellenberger for his upcoming fight on Feb 5th so be sure to tune in to the event and cheer on Jake.
