"I started wrestling when I was 6 years old and went on to win states in high school and wrestle in college. I now have a 7 year old son wrestling at the Hoboken Edge. He is learning fundamentals that I never was exposed to and from NCAA All-Americans. These kids are learning from the best coaches in the country. I couldn't be more impressed and more excited for my son."

Top Five Reasons to get your children started

We are different than the Karate, Tae Kwon Do, kung fu and other martial arts in Hoboken and Jersey City.

How? Wrestling is very different from these martial arts. It is the oldest sport in history and has been used to build confidence in the lives of millions of youths across the world. It is also the only of these sports to be contested at the NCAA level where full support and scholarships are offered. We are professionals, most of our instructors are full time teachers, have competed at the youth, high school, and national levels. Our head coach even has his Master’s Degree in Education from Columbia University. We love what we do and it shows.

Our Program is extremely safe.

Our instructors have over 10,000 hours of mat time combined, and each one has an intense emphasis on safety, respect, and control. We have a fully padded training area, including wall and floor mats.

Kids learn control while developing an athletic base.

Wrestling involves more than just fitness, while some martial arts focus on acrobatics and kicks. Wrestling requires kids to focus on controlling themselves first, once this is mastered their focus then shifts to controlling their environment. We build balance, motor control, strength, mental toughness, and endurance all through movement. As coordination and confidence improve each child progresses to the next level only when they are ready.
