TESTIMONIALS

Here’s the buzz…

“I just want to say thank you for your great class. It was easy to understand and implement the adjustments into my style. What I enjoyed most, were the submissions and how they fit into my wrestling.

In my first grappling tournament, I followed the class instruction and used the double wrist lock that Billy taught to submit my opponent in my first championship match. Then, in my third place match, I used the cradle ankle crank. Both times, my opponents did not see these moves coming, and they both fit right into my natural style. I’m excited to master the other submissions taught.”

~ Jeramy Hunt-Loveless
Veterans US Freestyle Nationals 2010 Champion

“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

“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
Pro Wrestler, INOKI GENOME FEDERATION

“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

“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

Frank was the No. 1 ranked pound for pound UFC fighter in the world during his reign as the UFC Middleweight Champion and has won numerous titles in other martial arts organizations, including the interim King of Pancrase title, the WEC Light Heavyweight Championship and the Strikeforce Middleweight Championship.

Mark was a district champion in high school amateur wrestling and is also a 3-time Virginia Heavyweight Champion and former International Heavyweight Champion (US and Japan) between 1990-92.

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

FAQ

What makes a Scientific Wrestling PIN and SUBMIT Training Camp different?

Despite its enormous popularity, rich history, and competition effectiveness, coaching in authentic CACC is still hard to come by. Since 2003, Scientific Wrestling has worked tirelessly and changed that.

Who are some of the other legends that have coached for Scientific Wrestling?

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). We’ve also been grateful to have legends like Mark Schultz and Yoshiaki Fujiwara too.

Will I be certified after attending one of the camps?
