Goksun Wrestling Festival, Turkey

I visited my country in Aug and participated in a wrestling festival in my hometown,Goksun in Turkey where i was born and grew up wrestling. As a common tradition, throughout summer there are a lot of traditional wrestling tournaments and so many wrestlers get busy, wrestling in Turkey.
It is one of the biggest and oldest traditional wrestling tournament in Turkey. Every year over 800 wrestlers competed in three different categories;Junior, Cadet, and Senior ( +18 years) for the rewords. I also participated and did an exhibition match as the end of my active wrestling career. It was very emotional moment for me to wrestle in my home town as my last official wrestling match as the announcer introduced me.
                                                                                                                    I wrestled an exhibition match ( on the right!)

 During the tournament i was honored and given a special shield by the Turkish Senate Asst.President, Nevzat Pakdil.It is given to those who served in wrestling proudly and bring a championship from international level to the local region.

2008 Summer Wrestling Camp and Summary of 2007-2008 Season

Champions Wrestling School finished 2007-2008 wrestling season with a successful summer wrestling camp. And I would like to thank for those of you making our 2008 summer wrestling camp. We had about 45 campers, from 6 years old to 18 years old for 5 days camp. During the camp, Wrestlers showed great performance and enjoyed working out in multi activities like conditioning, swimming, wrestling, running and others. About 35 % of the campers participated in a summer wrestling camp for the first time.

We were so glad to offer such opportunity for them. And we are committed to provide better wrestling learning opportunities and improvement program for them in the future.

During 2007-2008 season, our wrestlers participated many tournaments and championships. 50 % of our members were beginner wrestlers, 30 % of members have been wrestling for 3-4 years, 20 % of members have been wrestling for over 4 years.
But, because of constant improvements and great interest our wrestlers upset so many opponents on the mat at the State championships and other big tournaments and finished with 7 first places, 2 second places, 4 third places at AAU NC State Championship, 3 first places, 4 second places and 1 third place at USA NC State freestyle and Greco Championships.

We hosted 8 wrestling clinics (mini camp), one summer wrestling camp and participated two summer camp as a guest. During the camps and clinics wrestlers got chance to learn and improve constantly and as we are committed to do in our program, some time we brought in a guest to show new techniques and share their unique experience with our wrestlers. And we will continue to bring in National, international and Division I level wrestlers.
