What Parents Say

A friend/coach recommended to try and have Chris work with Coach Valdez, he said that his technical style and abilities would be a good fit for Chris. Chris was fortunate enough to work regularly with Coach Valdez since the beginning of his senior year. Coach Valdez was able to patiently and systematically make small adjustments, fine tune and add to Chris’s technique. He was able to compliment Chris’s style and build upon what his high school coaches were teaching him. Coach Valdez was a major part of Chris going from being a 2X California State placer to achieving his goal and becoming a California High School Wrestling State Champion. Thanks again Coach Valdez for all that you did in helping Chris to achieve his goal.

Perry, father of Chris Mecate-California State Champion, National All-American
