How important is agression in wrestling? When I wrestle I like to stay very calm and focus on my breathing while at the same time being a very responsive type wrestler. I usually wait for my opponent to make a mistake and I capitalize on it, whether it be getting the underhooks and working from there or a throw or a double leg or something simple like snapping them down and just spinning around and getting the two. I'd have to say I am extremely comfortable with my take down defense. My coaches tell me that I need to get more agressive though, and how "Agression can't be taught." They always use this roid raged kid on my team as an example. lol. idk...thoughts?
