Weekend Wrestle Camp

bicep worship

It’s been a busy weekend, involving lots of teen boys proud of their biceps!

Chad, owner of private gym, invited boys from the Lexington wrestle club into his small hall Man.Power.2 for a weekend sleepover with kids from our new wrestle club associated with the high school. 4 of their coaches came down, including our special friends Leon and Dane (special in that “gay sex” sense) who did not ‘camp’ in the hall but elected to stay with us instead (and very welcome their attentions were, too…).

Dave and I had duties in the gymnastics hall on Saturday morning…



…but free from lunchtime, getting back just in time to see my son Leo’s fourth defeat of the competition (arrgh!) – he has some way to go with his wrestling I think… but great fun was being had by all, as they say:


This is a ‘submission’-style group from Lexington, and our local group is a spin-off from the collegiate style the high school wants them to learn…


Some like using their feet, like these guys…


…and the older ones, who put in more effort, get more sweaty and tired…


On Sunday, a disheartened Leo decided to go with Jaymee and her acrobatic trio to a competition in Chattanooga (to support his girlfriend Karla!!), especially as his best friend Chris withdrew as well in order to support his older brother Billy in a bodybuilding contest. Dave and I, with Leon and Dane, got a quick river swim in on Sunday morning…



…before returning for the re-start of the competition.

All the boys who took part seemed to have a great time, losers as well as winners, and we hope to repeat the event before to long by taking a group up to Lexington for a weekend.

After all that, not least the bed-time fun we had with our gay colleagues, we’re feeling a bit tired right now, although I seem to have woken up at first light again nonetheless.

A few more fitness pictures then, to boost the post a bit:






And with that, and a quick mention of those wretched gay/acrobatic/circus/sporty/adventure books I keep imploring you to buy to support this blog…

Loving the Boy: ISBN 978-1-907732-30-0

The Power of Love: ISBN 978-1-907732-41-6

Against All Odds: ISBN 978-1-908645-35-7

…that’s it for today. Got to rush off now to coach. Bye, and keep fit, like this outstanding example…


About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
