Q&A With the Coach
Why did you start wrestling?
I started wrestling to strengthen my body and my mind. I have always been interested in wrestling since a young age. I liked how training wrestling made me stronger and faster the more I trained.
What are your future goals with wrestling?
One of my future goals with wrestling is to become a coach once I finish competing, but I hope to have a long and successful competition career before I retire. I also want to help spread the word about the sport of wrestling so I hope to be a true ambassador and represent Taiwan well.
Who should try wrestling and why?
If you like to exercise, you’re welcome to give wrestling a shot. Wrestling is fun and a very useful skill and sport that has been around for thousands of years across many cultures. Come try a class.
