We’ve had numerous requests about the video played before the finals bouts.
We’d like to thank the 1,000’s of coaches, club leaders, and club volunteers for their time and effort to make the IKWF the best kids wrestling organization in the country. There is no doubt the IKWF would not be what it is without you. Thank you.
