The Power Beach Bash happened this past weekend at the Sports Garden DFW sponsored by Coach Kenney and the Power Wrestling Club. Beach Wrestling is different. Beach Wrestling is a 1, 3 minute period and the first wrestler to 3 points wins. A takedown or push out is one point, if you knee touches ground its one point, if you throw feet to the back its 3 points, these were the basic’s points I saw.
We also saw wrestlers from College Park, The DeGeorgio Girls made the trip up to Dallas. Stone Drulman a State Champ from 2013 was wrestling in the senior division. A wide arrange of wrestlers from 8U to Seniors was in attendance. All in All it was a great event that will definitely keep growing and the venue is great at the Sports Garden DFW which happens to be owned by a former wrestler from Minnesota.
A Little About Beach Wrestling:
Beach wrestling was introduced as an international style by UWW, the international governing body for wrestling, as another avenue for athletic competition. Beach Wrestling (or sand wrestling) has been a consistent style of wrestling internationally for centuries. Combining elements of all wrestling styles, including sumo, Beach events have drawn walk-up crowds when partnered with other sporting events, helping expand the reach of wrestling through non-traditional venues.
