Scientific Wrestling PINISHER Training Camp with Coach Wade Schalles

Training with Scientific Wrestling has always meant training with the undisputed best - first with an unprecedented seven full years of access to the genius of Head Coach Billy Robinson (our Assistant Coaches were handpicked by the man himself) and now with one of the greatest Champions in the history of the sport of wrestling to our coaching staff... The Incomparable COACH WADE SCHALLES!

-World Record Holder for defeating the most World Champions and pinning the most World Champions!

-Guinness Book of World Records holder of the most wins and pins of anyone who has ever competed

-All-American in five combative disciplines (Sambo, Judo, Freestyle, Folkstyle and Greco-Roman wrestling)

-Winner of 15 different national championships

-Collegiate world champion

-The Father of "Funk Wrestling"

-National Record Holder for defeating the most NCAA champions

The fact is that Coach Wade is probably the greatest living wrestler that most of us will ever get the chance to be coached by! And you will be getting hands-on coaching from Coach at our next training camp!

He's had an astonishing career as both athlete and a coach. During his competitive days, Sports Illustrated said Mr. Schalles was “the most exciting wrestler to ever walk onto a wrestling mat!”.

Heck, even Dan Gable called him “the greatest pinner he's ever seen!. Gable said, "I've never seen anyone so unorthodox who is so good. You never know what Wade will do next"

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, when FILA awarded such ranks) and a 4th degree black belt in Judo as well!

Wade is also the man starring in the international best-selling instructional series "Legal Pain: Mastering The Art Of Pinning".

Learn Scientific Wrestling's Methods And Finishing Holds The Safe And Fun Way!

We make sure that our students get the most from their training by utilizing a three-tier certification system.

Level 1 Beginner

Level 1 Audits are a two day intensive clinic, covering all the basic positions, rides, tie-ups, transitions, escapes, pins, and submission chains native to Scientific Wrestling.

Level 1 Certifications may be repeated as needed or desired (at half price for each audit until Level 3).
Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for Level 1. Wrestlers of all levels of experience and fitness are allowed. Level 1 combines lectures, demonstration, and hands-on practice.


Level 2 Practicioner

Candidates will be expected to demonstrate and explain the Positions & Rides, Takedowns/Tie-Ups/Transitions, Pinning Combinations, and Submission Chains learned during Level 1.

Also, drills and games to prepare candidates for their Level 3 live wrestling matches will be introduced and reviewed.

Level 2 Certification allows you to demonstrate and be evaluated on your ability to teach Scientific Wrestling concepts and movements exclusively. Please email us for the application to apply for your Level 2 cert. As with Level 1, Level 2 certs may be repeated as needed or desired. Prerequisite: Successful completion of the Level 1 audit.


Level 3 Trainer

Candidates may be tested on their ability to "Put It All Together" and will demonstrate technique and conditioning during exhibition AND competitive CACC rules matches.

Level 3 Certification allows you to demonstrate and be evaluated on your ability to understand CACC techniques, run a club, and train others. Please email us for the application to apply for your Level 3 audit. Prerequisite: Successful completion of the Level 2 audit.



Candidates will be tested on their ability to assist head coaches with trainings. Deep understanding of the basic principles and applications required.

Prerequisite: Successful repetition of Level 3 audit until the head and assistant coaches feel the wrestler is ready. Assistant coach spots are determined exclusively at the discretion and agreement of existing coaches. There will be no rubber stamped Asst. Coaches, go elsewhere if that is what you are looking for, this designation takes years of deliberate effort and improvement to earn.

Upon completion, attendees will have sufficient understanding of Scientific Wrestling's methods, concepts, and movements to continue independent and successful development as an authentic Catch-As-Catch-Can Wrestling trainer and/or athlete.


Each Successful Student Will Receive...

  • Signed Certification verifying Scientific Wrestling Training Camp Attendance and Level.
  • Candidates will also receive free lifetime membership to LIFETIME VALUE: $$$ THOUSANDS!

Before you enroll - we have a few requirements:

First, all applicants must be 18 years old and in good health to apply. We reserve the right to refuse any application.

Second, certification fees are non-refundable and non-transferable

The cost of our training camps progressively decreases, regardless of level (i.e., unless you sign up for early-bird rates, your first cert attendance is $1500, your second is $750, and subsequent ones are $375), these prices are not fixed and will very likely increase over time. We front load the cost of registration to incentivize participants to keep coming to training camps. Each camp becomes progressively cheaper, you won't find a better LONG TERM training value!

We don't want you to make up your mind to sign up for our Certified Scientific Wrestler Training Camps until you ABSOLUTELY feel certain that this is right for you. Our team will be helping you out hands-on during the certification and afterwards online.

"Dear Jake,
What you have put together is wonderful! Very insightful. You will run a great clinic and be a success. I have never seen anything like this.

We old timers learned in small, dark, dirty gyms. Or at least I did. My teachers were Frank Wolf, Ben Sherman, Speedy Larance, Henry Kolhn, Jack Guy, Waino Ketonhen. Frank Wolf started teaching me at 10 years of age. I started boxing and wresting on At Shows at 16 years of age. Around 1943.

I am eighty now. I was a pro for over 43 years. Show biz, I had to learn all over again. I did it well. I worked on top all over. 5 ft 9, weight 185. I was a wrestler, fighter, and a Wild Bull rider.

Keep Punching Pal!"

Your friend,

Scientific Wrestling Certification Reviews:
"Hey Jake, Just returned home from the audit. I can't believe how much stuff we covered this weekend! Billy really is a great coach and person. And you were a great asst coach ;-)

I wrestled at West Point and started at 190 lbs my first 3 yrs. Placed 5th and 6th in the eastern regionals (EIWA- Divison I). While I was in the Army I wrestled for the All-Army Wrestling Team and placed 2nd in the University Nationals '93 (greco- 220 lbs) and then placed 7th in the Senior Nationals '94 (Greco Roman All American- 220 lbs). Also placed 6th in the World Team Trials, Dec '95 (greco - 220).

...The way he broke down every move in minute detail was amazing. Thanks again for putting this together. I appreciate all your hard work. I look forward to attending the next audit.
- Alex Porcelli

"Jake, I just want to say thank you for your great class. Billy was amazing. He pointed out things that have never been brought to my attention. 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.

Thanks again for your and Billy's instruction!"


"It was incredible, I really enjoyed myself. I learned a ton of new things. Catch-As-Catch-Can is a really full system and working with a master like Billy Robinson was incredible. I feel really privileged to have been a part of this program."

"It was damn hard -- almost a right of passage! The two days of training was hard as hell, nonstop (except for some water breaks) and packed full of info. I came away feeling like all the things I learned up to that point had finally started to jell. It was a true immersion into the material. I recommend training for and participating in the audit for any serious grappler. I often find myself thinking 'why didn't I learn this years ago?'"
-Michael Long
International Guild of Danse de Rue Savate

"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, Take care!"
-Mike Raho

"Thank you so much for letting me be a part of history. It is an honor to be a part of the rich history of Scientific Wrestling. Having Dick Cardinal there was like capturing a piece of American history and meeting a legend all at the same time. What I loved about the audit is that you really have to know how to wrestle. There were no gimmicks, no tricks, no crazy moves that would never work. It was good, old fashioned, applicable wrestling. The submissions were fantastic. They all flow naturally off of technical wrestling and are easy to set up. Your diligence and respect of the past is amazing. You have created something special with Scientific Wrestling and I am proud to be a small part of it."

"That was the greatest class I've ever had. Billy is awesome. His attention to detail is fantastic. I'm completely overwhelmed. I trained with top BJJ black belts for years and never had a class this good. Now, they are geniuses on the mat, but, many times the teaching skills are lacking. I actually had a problem teaching last night because I had so much information swimming in my head!
