I'm looking for something to show my 8 year-old who just started wrestling to help motivate him. He likes the sport, but watching regular freestyle/folkstyle matches only holds his attention briefly. I have ruled out "Vision Quest" for a little while because of the "R" rating. He is still of the opinion that he needs "karate" not wrestling in order to be able to fight for real. I've contemplated showing him some Coleman or Kerr matches, but we did have a few brief problems with him breaking rules (biting/striking) so I'm trying to stick to just wrestling.

Does anyone have any ideas for motivating movies or videos?

Dryfly - The movie "Legendary" is a good motivational wrestling movie for kids. IMHO

the youth wrestlers love this because it has John Cena in it and its really uplifting.

Takedown and Falls is phenomenal

My 7 year old watches Legendary all the time and my 10 year old gets pumped to Takedown and Falls...

Its hard to beat Take downs and Falls for a wrestling documentary.   Myself and my son had the pleasure of watching Marshall Peppelman, the younger brother from the movie, wrestle at the southern scuffle two weeks ago.  He is now a junior or senior at Cornell.  Pretty cool. 

 

Check out the trailer fpor Pinned above.  Your kid will like that one as well.
