American Wrestler Lessons
What do sports and movies have in common?
They both teach life lessons, and are wonderful times to spend with each other bonding, laughing and learning about the world with live in.
My family loves the combination of sports and movies.
When it comes to sports, we love the drama of the game and we love being a part of the action. Whether we are watching sports or playing them we enjoy the teamwork, effort, adversity, and the ability to work with inspirational and motivational coaches.
So when it comes to movies we love how the lessons vary. Every movie has different lessons to be learned. Not only do they craft amazing narrative with ceative storytelling, but they also deliver inspiration or teach us something.
Combining life lessons with wonderful stories, which are sometimes even true, is a great way for some amazing entertainment. American Wrestler is a movie that is on our family’s watch list and we are so excited that it is already available on digital!
Our favorite part about this film, was knowing that it was one man’s actual journey from another country to find freedom and perserverance from a sport every one of our kids can participate in; wrestling. Wrestling can be a great tool for our children to learn to push through adversity and become resilient, no matter what the challenge.
As a family we often wrestle with issues on a daily basis, but what if you could embrace the challenges ahead of you, and grow as an individual. You might even welcome change. 😉
