"There is much more to wrestling than championships and gold medals... Here at Total Force it's more important to us that we create and help grow the love of wrestling so that our students continue on with their training and become coaches someday to pass on their knowledge. Being great at sport isn't about just winning gold medals or winning in general... It's about being able to take others along for the ride with you, inspire those around you, and lift them up to a better place so they can realize their true potential.... Gold medals and winning just happen to sometimes come with that..."
"Mike, I just wanted to tell you that Joey crushed kids this weekend with the legs you taught him, absolutely brutal..."
Joe Butler, Wrestle in my shoes
"Mike its been only a couple weeks and I can already see Conner's improvement when I watch him wrestle. You guys are doing a great job!"
"Coach Tush is simply a professional, everything he does he explains with such precision and simplicity. My kid walked out of practice understanding more in an hour and a half than the entire season! Force has some of the best coaches I've ever seen!
"Coach Omar has been amazing with my children, so patient and motivating, they follow his every word and are learning so much in such a short amount of time!"
"There's no club or wrestling team I've ever been around where my son gets this type of coach to student ratio. You guys truly have something special here and we're glad we found you!"
"Thank you for allowing us to start Joey so young, other clubs wouldn't take him because of his age, but you guys are able to make him feel right in the mix of everything and he Loves it!"
"Mike thanks to you Will won last night, pinned in the second period. His coach said he couldn't believe how much better his stance and hand fighting were!"
"Because of Mike and club, I've developed a love for wrestling that is going to continue into college and beyond, I totally want to be a coach someday! Thanks so much for your hard work over these years and never giving up on me when others said I wasn't good enough."
"Coach Harris helped take my wrestling to another level when I was struggling just to reach our state tournament in Atlantic City, he stuck it out with me and taught me when others got frustrated..
"Just want to let you know, Ryan’s improvement the last 6 months in wrestling has been outstanding – I can even see it in his improved performance in rugby. After missing his sophomore year and relegated to backup in his junior year, I figured he would have a decent senior year. But with his improvement and work ethic from his time at Force, I believe he can have an outstanding senior year."
Thanks for your effort with Ryan. He thinks the world of you!!
"Mike has brought the joy of wrestling back into Max's heart, since he's been with you guys his attitude has completely changed and we can't thank you enough!"
Sue and Mark Meyers
"Being at with Mike has helped improve my work ethic and allowed me to get back to the top of the state podium this past year. After losing 3 times to one kid during the year I came back and won when it mattered most, I've learned never to quit no matter how hard things seem!"
Total Force works on creating Champions and great people both on and off the mat!
