Learn the ELITE SECRETS of cutting-edge takedowns, pinning combinations and submission chains at our acclaimed, affordable, and effective training camps!

Training with Scientific Wrestling has ALWAYS meant training with the undisputed best.

Legendary catch-as-catch-can wrestler Dick Cardinal coached our very first camp, then for an unprecedented seven full years we had access to the genius of Head Coach Billy Robinson (note: our Assistant Coaches were handpicked by the man himself and are now teaching our new and improved Coaches Program).

After the passing of Coach Robinson, Wade Schalles (one of the greatest champions in the history of combat sports) took the helm. Last year, Scientific Wrestling was proud to add MMA and grappling legend Josh Barnett to our coaching team!

This year Josh Barnett and Wade Schalles will be teaching their own highly specialized 2-day camps individually throughout this year… and coaching TOGETHER at our 3-day training camps in London, UK and Denver, CO! Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, here are the men that will be there to offer personal, hands-on analysis and coaching…

And a special appearance by former Head Grappling coach at The Blackzilians, Xtreme Couture, and Alliance MMA…

“The Toughest 40 Year Old Catch Wrestler In The World”

Neil Melanson

“[Scientific Wrestling is] the most legitimate, honest website and conglomerate of people that are true fans of catch wrestling that have the right spirit for it. It’s not trying be something different or trying sell something. It’s trying to honor the memory and trying to keep the history alive and that is really important to me.”

Neil Melanson is a straight up legend in the inner circles of grappling and BJJ and has coached many world champions including former UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Randy “The Natural” Couture, former UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominic Cruz and current two-time Bellator Lightweight Champion Michael Chandler to name only a few!

Neil Melanson teaches simple and easy to use catch wrestling techniques that work wonders at the very highest level. During this very special appearance he’ll show you how to dismantle your rolling partners and competitors in just a few minutes.

Neil isn’t one of those coaches who shoots instructions from the sidelines. He is in the trenches battling with his troops everyday and that is how he’s gained everyone’s respect.

He does things that those other guys simply do NOT do. Because he doesn’t do BJJ.

He’s a catch wrestler. And he’ll be joining Coach Wade Schalles on April 8 – 9 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL!

Scientific Wrestling Is The Absolute Very Best For Learning Both Wrestling AND Submission Skills!

Since 2005 Scientific Wrestling has laid the ground work for a serious revolution in combat sport. Remember, Scientific Wrestling was first to hold open Catch Wrestling tournaments in the modern era (with a rule set advised by no less than “The God of Wrestling” Karl Gotch, with no-holds-barred) back in 2007 – years ahead of anyone else!

We’ve hosted trainings with legends like Yoshiaki Fujiwara, Dick Cardinal, Mark Schultz, and we were also the first to offer athletes open access to Coach Billy Robinson. Now we are thrilled to give combat athletes a chance to train with the WARMASTER and THE PINISHER at the same camp!

If You Want To Be The Best.. Then Train With The Best

During his competitive days Sports Illustrated said Coach Schalles was “the most exciting wrestler to ever walk onto a wrestling mat!” and Dan Gable called him “the greatest pinner he’s ever seen!”.

During his career Wade defeated 36 national champions (pinning an AMAZING 17 of them) as well as defeating 8 World titlists (each total is considered a record).

He earned a 9th degree black belt in Sambo (this is when he was on the Sambo World Team and when FILA awarded such ranks) and also a 4th degree black belt in Judo.

Josh Barnett has also proven himself time and time again against the world’s toughest competition. A former UFC Heavyweight Champion and King of Pancrase; he is the current Metamoris Heavyweight Champion. Josh has stood at the top of the MMA and grappling food chain on several occasions.

Both Josh and Wade have coached their athletes to championships as well and YOU are invited…

Here’s What Participants Have To Say

Some quick testimonials from our previous Training Camp attendees…

“Jake Shannon and Josh Barnett are definitely the best. You’ll find out soon how much knowledge and professionalism they have, but mostly, you are going to feel the original essence of CACC. Scientific Wrestling is where legendary trainers such as Karl Gotch, Billy Robinson and Yoshiaki Fujiwara left a piece of their soul and I feel deeply honored to have set foot on that mat, listening, learning and… do it again.”

– Vito Rea

“Wade is an amazing coach, with a real eye for detail, and a real sense of humour when he teaches. His ability to break down basic bio-mechanics into simple, easy to understand concepts is second to none, and explains why he is the most successful pinning wrestler of all time.

His ability to tailor what he is doing to each individual person, and to demonstrate each and every variation of what he is talking about is what sets him apart as a coach. That man knows more ways to hurt you than I thought possible.”

– Martin “Oz” Austwick

“Thank you very much for the great weekend. I learned a lot of things and I really had a fun time with all you guys. I hope to be able to come back soon!

You guys have really made me fall in love with Catch-As-Catch-Can and I can’t wait to learn more and keep on learning! Thank you and all the other guys for making it such a wonderful experience for me!”

– Mike Raho
Vicenza, Italy

“My head’s still spinning from all the game changing knowledge that was dropped at this years Scientific Catch Wrestling Seminar this past weekend.

Jake Shannon and Wade Schalles’ Catch Wrestling Seminar was totally game-changing. It’s only a question of time until this explodes onto the MMA scene and evolves… taking MMA to the next level. It works, which means it’s just like a force of nature… it can’t be stopped. It’s that simple.”

– James “The Colossus” Thompson
Bellator and Pride FC fighter
