We understand the value the Olympic styles have on our Scholastic success in wrestling.  Therefor all of our members are strongly encouraged to participate, and the results always speak for themselves consistently producing some of the best wrestlers in the country.


Between our world-class system, high quality coaching and international schedule, Legends of Gold is certainly one of the higher quality programs around for both primary and supplemental Freestyle and Greco-Roman training.  

L.O.G. 3-Year guarantee:

Your wrestler will be one of the best in the country!

year 1


The first year is introducing your wrestler to the system.  Getting acclimated to the styles, scoring, techniques and habits will take all season, but they will have fun and improve in the sport.

year 2


The second year you will see an increase in confidence as their comfort level will have increased on the mat, as they have a better understanding of Freestyle and Greco-Roman.

year 3


Between our system and schedule, your wrestler will have been in contact with and had success against some of the top wrestlers in the country, and this inspiration puts them on the path to greatness.

What is Freestyle &

Wrestling is probably the oldest of all sports and has been depicted in cave paintings dating back 15,000 years. It was a sport practiced in many ancient societies and it was one of the original sports in the ancient Olympics. 


Although we wrestle Folkstyle scholastically here in the United States, Freestyle and Greco-Roman are the current styles of the Olympics. Women's collegiate wrestling is also Freestyle.

Freestyle is not much different than Folkstyle, aside from how points are awarded and top and bottom position.  It is known to be faster paced and more fun, with the ability to score big points in a short amount of time.  

Greco-Roman uses upper-body wrestling holds only, as wrestlers are forced to take each other down without attacking with or against legs.  This is a very physical style that can be challenging but extremely beneficial. 


Why are they important?






Winners practice winning - at everything they do. Whether that is on the mat, in the classroom, at home or in the community.  To do anything epic we have to get out of our comfort zone, which  means creating high performance habits is essential.  When motivation wears off, our discipline is what sustains us.



Give people credit, but never give them more credit than yourself.  Our power comes from knowing WHO we are.  If we don't know the power of our name, then no one else will.  Wrestling helps create this self-respect, which in turn spreads to other areas of our life, including siblings, parents, teachers, etc.



No disrespect to other martial-arts, but wrestling is practical, instinctive, and highly effect. This confidence, discipline, respect and defensive power leads wrestlers to not only know how to defend themselves, but even more so have the ability to speak up for those without their own voice.

All Freestyle and Greco-Roman technique can be used with Folkstyle in one form or another. From knowing how to work from a clinch to loading up tilts, additional technique via the Olympic styles is a major advantage.

college & olympic styles

Karate, Taekwondo,
Boxing, Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Muy Thai

Wrestling, similar to other self-defense disciplines, is also a martial art.  Like these disciplines, Wrestling provides a great opportunity to increase focus, physical fitness and know how to defend themselves.  Unlike these martial arts, however, Wrestling provides opportunities these forms cannot and do not, including:



Wrestling produces the highest amount of UFC and MMA champions over all other disciplines, including boxing, Jui-Jitsu, etc.


Most street fights end up on the ground and no other discipline teaches more takedowns and ground-control than wrestling. 

With the other disciplines, your child must get into a physical altercation to see if it truly works.  In wrestling, we know it works because we  practice this altercation daily in a safe and fun environment.

higher education


Your child must get into a physical altercation to truly utilize taekwondo or Karate, however Wrestling is the ONLY individual  combat sport in school. 


This means your child will be able to participate in scholastic athletics through wrestling.  Because of this, wrestling is a great vehicle to  receive scholarships at colleges and universities around the country!

social acceptance


Because wrestling is the only combat sport in school, your child will be interacting with more of their peers both inside and outside of school.  

Fortunately for wrestlers, because it is such a demanding sport, simply being on the team socially separates them from your average student-athlete.

Additionally, our members are usually some of the best, if not the best, on the team - so their social impact will be felt. 

Year-round schedule

USA Wrestling (USAW) is the national governing body for amateur wrestling in the country, whose annual calendar starts September 1st.  The Indiana State Wrestling Association (ISWA) is the governing body for amateur wrestling in the state.

Indiana scholastic wrestling (Folkstyle), particularly high school, is governed by the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA).  This schedule spans roughly from October to February.

Outside of the IHSAA, the ISWA/USAW calendar reigns supreme.  The benefit of this calendar is that it is year-round, it provides opportunities for all age groups, and features local and national events.

  • Competitions for all ages

  • Keeps your child active all year

  • Local and National Events

Regardless of age, gender, race, size, etc., everyone can compete year-round.

Our academy, with this schedule, allows your child stay active and fit all 12 months.

Not only are there opportunities to train and compete locally, but we travel throughout the country and even internationally.
