October 9, 2014 | Photos from the 2014-2015 Fall Clinic – Henry Cejudo, 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist.
Our participants were treated to a fantastic clinic by 2008 Olympic Champion Henry Cejudo. In addition to teaching world class wrestling technique, Henry spoke to his struggles as a youth in a poor, single family home, right here in one of the tougher areas of South LA. He discussed, first hand, how wrestling helped him to become the successful young man he is today. His message resonated well with our youngsters and is at the core of our mission to transform the lives of youth in school, sports and the community.
The clinic took place at Birmingham Community Charter High School, the future home of a BTSLA community youth wrestling program. In attendance were BTSLA boys and girls from all over the Greater Los Angeles Area. The schools represented were Birmingham Charter HS, San Fernando HS, San Pedro HS, S. El Monte, Pico Rivera, Stella Middle Charter Academy, Mulholland MS, Porter MS, Edison MS, Walnut Park MS, Vista.
