Please join our meetup site to let us know who you are and when you will be coming to practice. It is a great site with a calandar so you can see what we are doing in this and upcoming weeks, and you can read reviews from the people who come to practice.
The mission of the Chicago Wrestling Club is to provide a safe
learning environment for freestyle wrestlers 18 years of age and older.
Our motto is "Don't Break Your Toys" meaning don't hurt the people you are wrestling because
then you don't have anyone to wrestle next week. So while we wrestle pretty hard, we try to gage how hard the person we are wrestling wants to and can go and make sure we control the moves we are doing.
We mainly wrestle freestyle because there are open freestyle tournaments around the country that
we travel to as a team and hold one or two a year ourselves.
We welcome everyone from beginner to expert wrestlers to come out and roll on the mats with us.
We are happy to teach beginners and happy to be taught by the experts.
We usually wrestle in shorts and t-shirts and ask that you get a pair of
clean wrestling shoes just for the mat.
