Ecatepec lucha (after Hopper)

Another site where I've been training, this one in Ecatepec:

The ring is on the abandoned second-floor of a local shopping mall. The energy of the wrestlers, and of the practices, is terrific. Every Thursday we start with an hour and a half of olympic style wrestling, which I teach if I'm around. It's a kick -- among other things I love the fact that the group ranges from an 8-year-old (and extremely talented) girl named Karla, to a 60+ year old man wearing pink. Each (3-hour) training session costs 10 pesos.
