Better Business Bureau Membership Accreditation & Complaint Free Award

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Once again we ended 2016 with an "A+" rating with the BBB. And we were accredited again with them for another year. We also are a multi-time winner of their Complaint Free Award. What that means is we take care of customers year in and year out.  Here are two of the certificates from the BBB they sent us recently.  Hats off to all our customer service and employees that make these awards happen. Without the staff to ship the orders correctly and our telephone customer service employees, these awards would not be possible. And we are of course partial, but we think we have some of the best information about our products on the Internet.

6 Destructive Habits That Will Ruin Your Wrestling Career

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


  Having one or two of these habits by themselves might not completely ruin your wrestling career, but a few of them together and you might as well kiss your wrestling career goodbye. 1. No Goals or Unclear Goals This is one thing that really changed both my wrestling and my academic success. Put down some written goals that you are going to work hard towards achieving. Don't just have them in your head. Not having specific goals that can be measured is also part of this problem. For example, "get better at wrestling" is not a good clear goal that can be measured. Some specific and measurable goals include: Wrestle in X number of matches in the Spring and Summer...

Help My Son Wants to Quit Wrestling

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Background Story Jackson is my son pictured on the top of the podium. He is now wrestling again with the Frost Spartans Jr High Club. He started wrestling young around 5 years old - attending practices geared toward younger wrestlers and competing on a limited basis. I did not want to push him too hard in the beginning. Plus he was usually doing at least one other sport or activity while he was wrestling too. He said he did not want to wrestle any longer when he was around 10 years old.  The Non Wrestling Years Each time before we sign our kids up for something, we ask them if they want to do it. They understand when they sign...

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Every year we announce what our top selling wrestling shoes are from our top wrestling brands. This year saw several wrestling shoe companies not offer shoes like in the past. So only the big 3 remain at this time. The major brands are Nike, adidas, and ASICS.

Mike Krause and Mark McKnight Wrestling Technique Videos

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


We only have one video from Mark Krause appearance at our Smile Train fundraiser clinic. We must have some lost video clips out there because I know he showed more technique at the clinic than this one clip. He was definitely high energy. I think it caught some of the wrestling coaches by surprise. If my memory is not failing me, this is one of, if not Coach Krause's first wrestling clinics he put on while working with Cliff Keen wrestling. The rest is history now...he is all over youtube with wrestling technique now and conducts clinics and camps through out the country. Mark McKnight's technique clips we videoed while sponsoring the Northwestern wrestling clinics. This particular one was hosted...

Nike Hypersweep Wrestling Shoes

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Hard to Find Shoes The Nike Hypersweeps wrestling shoes were definitely the hard to find wrestling shoe for the 2016 - 2017 wrestling season. At this time of the year (early 2017), we are not sure what is going on with the Hypersweeps. I would expect the Black Hypersweeps to be back next year and maybe a new color way? We will see if that prediction is correct or not.  Unlimited Hypersweeps The Unlimited Version of the Hypersweeps were made on a limited basis and are just about gone. We do have a few good sizes available left but are about out. Don't wait too long if you want this Unlimited color, unlike it's name the inventory on it is...
