Battle Boards or MAS wrestling –
Space requirements –
5 meters x 10 meters

Supplies and Equipment –
2” x 6” x 6’-8’ board
20” dowel
2 end caps notched to hold board upright

* Although you can buy Battle Board kits, a homemade version is easy to construct.

Play –
Players hold the dowel over the center 2 x 4 board; grip styles should be similar. Feet are flat and braced on the board. On go, kids try to pull their opponents to a standing position or over the center board or pry the dowel from their hands.

Trainer Notes –
We recommend a slow, controlled match initially for each pair of kids to give them an idea of how much force to apply and to allow them to consider a bracing strategy as well as balance. Be sure to pair similarly sized kids and monitor so that no one flies over the center board.
