Re: Respect your opponent
I remember my son wrestling a kid from Wisconsin or something in a duals tournament. My son was good but no where near this kids level. He teched my son, cross facing him a dozen times in the process, smiling and laughing in the process. It was a tough match to watch and had it been a scholastic match I'm sure the ref would have intervened.
Unnecessary brutality, showboating, or mocking your opponent has no place in wrestling. I have no problem with a kid getting teched as long as the dominant wrestler isn't looking to humiliate or hurt the lesser wrestler.
