So I did a trial pro wrestling training session in my local indy federation (Destiny Wrestling Organization, ABQ New Mexico) and I am just wanting to touch base with you guys on my opinion for assurance. I stopped going due to I don't think we were being trained right, and it's backwards training.
I don't want to say I know everything about the art of pro wrestling, because I don't. But, I started watching 10 years ago when I was 8. I feel like I do know a thing or two just by observing for a decade. First of all, our ring was outside in someones backyard in the slightly almost ''ghetto'' side of town. Rookies were doing ''rolls'', running to turnbuckle and flying over the opponents head, running the ropes and jumping over the top rope to enter somewhat similar to Mr. Perfect style. Rolls are important to bumping but I don't feel like they are something that needs to be hammered on. Jumping over the ring similar to Mr. Perfect style? Like, why do I need to know this on day one? Then then turnbuckle exercise seems fairly early. The rope running too, I need to hold the middle and top for leverage in case the rope breaks?! Training is $1,000 and we had a class of 4, that's $4,000. Better ropes can easily be afforded. As well as that I have to put my right foot forward anytime I bounce on the rope?
I typically think early first few weeks is training is bumping, running the ropes right, punching, basic ring movements, etc. I just want to here if everyone agrees or not so I can also try to help guys avoid these guys.
