The City –Since childhood, the men and women of Squared Circle Wrestling school have dreamt of making a living as professional wrestlers. And although they may have day jobs, they gather at a small, dimly lit gym on Deerhide Cres. three times a week. They spend time learning skills that, when mastered, look effortless. But the same move done wrong can bruise more than just your ego. In this case, Traiq Ghani (foreground, right) is giving Leo Yang a “Russian legsweep.” So why wrestle? The answer is simple: for the love of it.
