"Every good wrestler works hard and pays the price and every great wrestler is a little crazy in aspects of training. The guys I wrestled with on the Olympic team were mainly a little crazy, obsessive, compulsive, and tolerated nothing less than winning. If you tolerate losing one takedown in practice then in time you will slip when it counts."

-Cary Kolat

"Defeat is a state of mind. No one ever is defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality." 

-Bruce Lee

"Once you wrestle, everything in life is easy."

"To get better you have to step out of your comfort zone.  You can't do the same things you've always done and improve."

"It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”
