What You'll Get
Mat wrestling has always clashed with professional wrestling, as evidenced by the time Hulk Hogan was knocked out of the ring by Ares, the Greco-Roman god of folding chairs. Celebrate the singlet with today’s Groupon: for $250, you get a five-day children’s wrestling camp at Grapplin’ Gorillas (a $525 value).
Grapplin’ Gorillas’ five-day summer camps teach kids entering grades K–6 how to wrestle confidently and grapple with textbook form over a week of fun-centric training. Future spandex-owners start practicing each day on the lush grass of Central Park, supervised by director Glenn Rodriguez, a certified personal trainer and a coach at nearby Allen-Stevenson School, who looks on as kids rebound off the springy branches grown as ring ropes for druid Royal Rumbles. Miniature sportspeople will shake hands before and after each closely monitored live bout, as well as practice rolls, cartwheels, and stretching and strength exercises. Camps conclude with a Friday Takedown Tournament, where winners garner respect from peers and a wider berth from formerly formidable older siblings.
