Sensei Hamilton (Circa 1975)


Introduction to the sport and benefits of Wrestling. Initially this course will focus on Folkstyle/Intercollegiate Wrestling rules and procedures. 

Stage II

This program will move on to Ground-fighting Tactics, Effective Self Defense, Mixed Martial Arts and Submission Techniques.


"I believe that wrestling can play a highly educational part in the development of a boy or an active girl. The fundamental attribute that every successful wrestler must acquire, and which has great carry-over value after his student days, is self-discipline. From self-discipline stems self-confidence and belief in one's self. What greater lesson can a sport or a coach impart?"
