Josh Kim is one of the elite grapplers the Golden State has coming back for next season. This past season, he wound up as the state runner-up behind the second-ranked wrestler in the nation Quentin Hovis of Poway. TOM noticed Kim’s wrestling abilities when Kim won his second Freak Show championship by defeating three-time New York place winner Evan Barczak. He will be competing next week at UWW Junior Nationals attempting to gain All-American status after going 3-2 in the Cadet division last year. The full interview can be found at The Open Mat.
