Yes it is in some ways. You can break about any bone in you body, especially you're wrists, ankle, and neck. Additionally, the weight requirement makes wrestlers prone to eating disorders or malnutrition. There are rules in most Highschool and College leagues which attempt to prevent both physical harm and malnutrition, but both still happen occasionally.

Wrestling can be said to give many benefits. Unlike pro wrestling, you can go on to be national champion here in the US or you can go and wrestle in tournments in romote countries where wrestling there is as big as baseball or football here. Many CEO's and high level business people say that they owe their work ethic to the rigorous training and maintenance schedule that they learned in Wrestling. Addittionally, the personal nature of the sport as well as the rigorous training required can help build confidence. Wrestling is also one of the cheapest sports, the only required items being wrestling shoes and headgear. This is an economic advantage in comparison with other sports. If you're good enough, you can even qualify in the Olympic Trials to maybe even earn an Olympic Gold Medal.

Wrestling has many benefits. It can get you into fantastic shape, teach you many new skills, have some fun, get some anger out:), but for the main reason, wrestling can get you very far in life. If you become great, it can lead to college scholarships, and olympic chances, which can lead to millions of dollars. But the reason that it can help in your further life, is if your about to get in a little fight, the wrestler always wins. Wrestling will get you into shape, teach you new skills, and let you have some fun. Z

Almost any sport can be played at an amateur level. Some sports are played exclusively at an amateur level. Gaelic Football and Hurling are two amateur sports in Ireland, run by the largest amateur sporting organisation in the world. These are Ireland's two national sports.
