Beat the StreetsNew York, NY – With both the New York Yankees and New York Mets out of town, it’s been a slow here at the city billions of us love.

Thanks to the wrestling event between Team USA vs. Team Japan at Times Square which the nonprofit organization, Beat The Streets hosted, I enjoyed a fabulous time of grappling and technique. With that said, enjoy the photos!

About Beat the Streets

The mission of Beat the Streets is to develop the full potential of the urban youth and to strengthen the culture of New York City wrestling. BTS works directly with the New York City Department of Education in a public-private partnership to bring the life changing sport of wrestling to over 3,000 New York City student-athletes to help them achieve their personal and athletic goals.

Through the operation of wrestling programs in middle and high schools in the five boroughs, BTS and the DOE provide a safe, positive atmosphere in which disadvantaged and at-risk youth can learn the essential life lessons of grit, personal responsibility and teamwork, physical fitness and nutrition, and life-long learning.

The goal of fostering strong, well-rounded student-athletes is delivered through coaching, after-school programs, life skills workshops, and summer camps. More information can be found at www.btsny.org.
